Texas Bill Would Regulate Chaining of Dogs

A Republican lawmaker has filed a bill that would make it a misdemeanor for chaining up a dog in Texas.

State Rep. Sarah Davis, of West University Place, has filed House Bill 1156 which would prohibit a person from tethering a dog outside with a chain or with a restraint that has weights or is shorter than five times the length of the dog. In addition, a dog could be restrained to a stationary object only if the dog has access to a clean and sturdy shelter, shade and water and if the area is dry.

The bill was heard on Tuesday before the House Public Health Committee.

Davis told her colleagues that the law is confusing and allows abusive owners to receive multiple warnings before they’re penalized.
