|I live in a townhouse with no fenced yard. Therefore, I have tie outs. My dogs, however, are never left unsupervised.
If a dog is on a chain 24/7, that's no life to live, regardless of circumstances. They're social animals. I don't, however, see an issue with an hour or two at a time.
I also have an outdoor pen on my moms farm currently, that I usually use when I have a backyard. It's an 8 x 12 dog run, and I've had my dogs in that for a couple hours at a time before. But again, supervised for 95% of the time they're in it, and with a roof and proper shelter, water, etc.
It comes down to whether or not the dog is provided for imo.
