Isn't my dog happier living
Only if you live outside with him!
More than ten thousand years ago dogs were domesticated to live with
humans, they long for our companionship and need it. Dogs that do
not have constant human contact have more behavior problems.
The reason I put my dog
outside is because he was destroying the house. I had no choice,
what else could I do?
My dog started to jump the fence,
so I had no choice but to chain him to
By putting your dog outside you will
only increase his behavior problems.
Dogs that live outdoors are more likely to bark,
dig, chew, jump the fence and bite. The reason for this is because
they become lonely, bored and anxious. Dogs need constant human
contact and interaction. You can have a well-behaved dog that lives
indoors. The Humane Society is here to help! Please call our Behavior
Helpline at (954) 266-6851 so we can help you and your furry friend.
Do you have any other suggestions?
One of the cruelest things you could
do to a dog is to chain them for a prolonged period of time.
It is cruel and inhumane! Dogs kept on chains, watch
as the world goes by, imagine what life would be like.
Chained dogs suffer from psychological deprivation
which results in listlessness, depression, frenzied barking and aggression.
There is nothing positive about keeping any dog on a chain. If your
dog is jumping the fence, he’s probably bored. Take him for
lots of walks to alleviate his boredom and bring him inside with the
family. Call the Behavior Helpline so we can help you with this transition.
BREAK THE CHAIN!
