    Default Weird Thing Happend This Morning!

    At night time we usually chain our dog up to his dog house cuz he wonders around the yard and barks and one day he tried to get out, so when he's chained up he's chilled out and sleeps. Anyways early this morning at like 4am he's barking and carrying on so i eventually got out of bed and went to see what the problem was. Well i went to his dog house and he wasn't there, so i started calling out to him and he was all the way over up near the old brick bbq, his leash had gotten stuck. So i had to get the torch and a stick (in case of spider webs) and walk out in the middle of my garden in the dark. I managed to yank out the leash. I dont know how he got up there or how the leash came out from under the dog house legs, sooo strange!

    Im sorry if I sound rude but I personally do not believe in chaining up a dog (some have their reasons I know) but specifically for long periods of time.

    yes thats true but in the same respect not better if he gets tangled (as you have seen he can do) and strangles himself.

    If you want to change your technique so this doesn't occur again perhaps do some research about other ways to go about it

    Hi organicsab,
    Are you able to set up a night run, if your dog is a climber you can fully enclose it or if they are a digger you can slab / cement it. If this is not viable, are you able to put him in the laundry of a night time?

    This thread isn't about where her dogs stays at night.
    Besides, its perfectly fine. Majority of farm dogs are chained all day until they are needed.

    I agree 100% with the above comment.

    I do not chain dogs up, but that's my preference, as I have no need to. others do have various reasons of why and when they do it.

    OP, did the chain end snap, break, unlatch, or has he actually pulled the entire thing out from under the leg of the kennel?

    Perhaps you can tether the night-chain to a more secure anchor that is going to ensure he doesn't get loose again. That will also ensure he doesn't have any nasty accident such as strangulation if he does manage the houdini trick again. Lol.

    I don't disagree as to what the OP was doing however if tying his dog has become an issue then I was hoping to give advice, if it is unwanted I am happy to delete my post. I was suggesting to the OP that perhaps a fully enclosed night run would bring more piece of mind and a undisturbed night's sleep.
