Gwenhwyfair This.

In fact because chained dogs are often involved in bite incidents and *tend* to be neglected too some communities are creating 24/7 anti-tethering ordinances. They usually do allow exceptions for, as Lillie mentions above, those who are out only for part of the day or on a runner to potty for a short time.

there are a great many chained dogs that have killed children that i am guessing would not have killed kids had they been not chained and properly socialized

If the dog is chained 24/7. Things might be different if the dog is only chained while it is out in the yard to do it's business or for short lengths of time.

I can understand that as well.

Some of these dogs seem like they'll do anything just to release some of their energy. Maybe they'd act differently if they had a good walk to wear them out?
A good walk won't wear a high energy dog out, they need to run and do a lot of it to wear them out.

I think being high energy, not having an outlet and being tied up creates a lot of pent up frustration that can lead to a bite.
