To echo what everyone else said, a chain does not abuse a dog. PEOPLE abuse dogs. A bad owner will neglect a dog regardless if its on a chain, in a kennel, or in a fenced yard. If you search the forum, you can find MANY pictures of perfectly happy, healthy, dearly-loved dogs who are regularly on chains.

How does this compare with the statistics on dogs kept in yards? Kennels? In the home? I know of several recent bite incidents in my area, and none involved a chained dog. Two involved dogs in the backyard, and one involved a family dog at home.

Chained dogs, unsocialized with humans, can become very territorial of their tiny space, and any two year old who wanders into this space can be attacked and killed before adults can intervene. A recent attack in Texas in March, 2007 left 2 year old Carolina Sotello dead from head and neck wounds. She was attacked and killed by an unneutered male dog chained in the backyard, next to an unspayed female with puppies.
This is a tragedy....a pack of two dogs with puppies to protect, a child wandering too close, and the sadly predictable conclusion. I don't see how the chain factors into this attack.

There's a huge difference between chaining and tethering .

No. Chaining is tethering with a chain.

Tethering can encompass any number of things, but then again "chaining" is an even vaguer term to use. It actually makes me shudder - for some reason I think of being bound in chains or beaten with chains. It just sounds awful.

What? One involves a chain and the other involves a flimsy wire with an even flimsier snap hook that any dog wanting something outside of it's reach can snap?

I chain my dogs. I'm not afraid to say it. And my dogs are happy and very well adjusted.
