New Dog Chaining Ordinance Proposed in Dayton
DAYTON -- There soon will be stricter guidelines for folks who keep their dogs on chains. A new ordinance will create time limits and strengthen penalties.
Some dogs spend hours, weeks, months, sometimes years on a chain.
"I know of a dog right now who is chained out. He'd bark so they put a shock collar on him and when he barks they light them up from the house ," said Gail Downie, dog lover and activist.
It's a sight some can't bear to see.
"It's one of the worst things I've ever experienced in my life. Someone neglecting a dog or person is something I want to turn away from but I don't," activist Barbara Neyhouse added.
Local animal activists have reached out to city leaders to strengthen the current relaxed guidelines, and they listened.
The new ordinance states a dog can be tethered on a trolley system up to 12-hours at a time. Dogs on a fixed point chain have a limit of two hours.
The new ordinance does not limit the time dogs can be pinned up, though.
"They could be taken off the chain and put in a pen. Or according to this ordinance, they could be in a pen for 24-hours," Downie explained.
City leaders say it's a good start to make Dayton the more humane place for animals.
"This is a way for us to put that in the ordnance to set a community standard across the city and start talking to her citizens about how to treat dogs" Mayor Whaley said.
This ordinance will come with the penalty that will be comparable to letting your dog run loose.
Wednesday was the first reading and it will be heard for a second time before formal adoption.
