|I've done it in the past but very rarely and only in certain situations.
I had a "DogLock" locking leash, it is made for just that type of thing. It has steel wire inside it and a lock so no one can just walk off with your dog. It's not theft-proof-- if someone really wanted to they could cut through it with bolt cutters or something most likely, but it would take a while to do that, so it is a deterrent.
The leashes were made by Ruffwear but they don't make them anymore. You may be able to find one online somewhere if you really wanted one though.
Recently I was at a drugstore, and there was a dog standing outside. I thought it was weird. The dog was not tied up, but was standing totally still next to the store. He was standing there when I went in, and when I came back out he was still standing in the exact same position, then I saw a guy come out of the store and 'release' his dog and they walked off. It was a little odd because this was next to the parking lot, there is a sidewalk up against the wall of the store where people walk and then next to that is the driving area of the parking lot. I just thought it was odd to leave your dog standing there loose right next to where cars pull up and in the middle of where people walk, even if they will stay in place.
