|Why when you know that your dogs can get out by jumping the fence or opening the gates are they allowed to be outside when you are not home or all night?
Keeping an outside dog is really not fair to the dog,although I can understand that some people feel differently,there is no reason they should be allowed in harms way. I do not like tethering them in the yard but it is far safer than trusting luck that they will stay in the yard and/or allowing them to be in harms way. I own two very large dogs,they share our home,our room and even our bed. They are not "just dogs" they are loved and respected family members as they should be. They are fed,sheltered,given routine as well as any other medical care they need,just as I would provide for my children,I provide for my dogs who trust and depend on me for their wellbeing and safety. They are not human children but they are living creatures whos lives are no less valuable than a human's and having decided to get a dog YOU signed up to provide them with the things they need,no one made you get a dog,that was your decision,however when you got it,you made the commitment to provide for it's needs and safety. So do you job and provide for it,properly or find someone who will. Dogs do not teach themselves things anymore than children do,you as the "higher" being have the responsibility to teach the dog how to be safe,then you won't need to worry about how you will feel when it gets hit because it won't happen.
