What does "hanging a dog" mean? Obviously I dont think it means putting a rope around his neck and hanging him from a tree - at least I hope not
It means what that cop did the other day on video. Lifting the leash until at least his front legs are off the ground, potentially all the legs, and holding it that way. So minus the tree, basically yes.
