We recommend that you always keep your dog indoors
In case there are situations when you need to keep your dog outside the house, maintain him within a securely fenced backyard to protect against him from straying. Inside the secure boundaries of your own backyard, he or she need to have access to adequate shelter from rainfall, snowfall, major gusts of wind and other stormy weather conditions. You can additionally look at offering your pet with a covered pet dog 'run' or perhaps pen along with a doghouse inside. This is a excellent substitute if you happen to be incapable to fence your backyard, or in the event that your pet dog is likely to escape from your backyard by leaping the fence.
We don't suggest that you chain or tie your pet dog up to prevent your pet from walking off. A chained or tied up pet dog is likely to become frustrated, which might lead to destructive and/or hostile behavior. Your dog might in addition end up entangled in his chain, rope or leash and, as a result, badly injure himself.
However, if you feel you have to chain or tie up your pet, in that case use a 'dog trolley.' You could build one by simply sliding a ring on a large cable or rope and fasten the ends in between 2 posts or trees. Next, hook up your dog's lead to the ring. Make sure the lead is short enough to avoid tangling, yet long enough to allow your pet dog to lay down. The trolley could either be over head or on the surface. Provide at the very least 15 ft of clear space for your pet dog to move around in and be positive to clear away any items or debris that could lead to your pet to become entangled or hurt. Never secure the dog trolley near stairways, fencing, decks or porches, and make sure it is a secure range from all of likely 'escape routes.' When using a dog trolley, never at any time use a choke chain dog collar, however use a leather or nylon harness alternatively. Do not leave your dog chained outdoors for long intervals of time.
