(c) A person restraining a dog with a chain or tether shall attach the chain or tether to a properly fitting collar or harness worn by the dog. A person may not wrap a chain or tether directly around a dog’s neck. All collars used for the purpose of tethering animals must be made of durable and non-metallic material. Using a chain, choke or pinch collar while tethering is prohibited. A person may not restrain a dog with a chain or tether that weighs more than 1/18 of the dog’s body weight. A chain or tether used to restrain a dog must, by design and placement, be unlikely to become entangled.
I have a 7 1/2 year old Alaskan Malamute. I have recently been taking him to aggressive training classes. He appears to be fear aggressive, anxious around strangers. He will allow my friends that come into the house to pet him, be friendly, then out of nowhere he will growl. He walks nicely until there is another dog around then he hollars (not growls, like a howl yell and will sometimes lunge); when a person walks by he cant stop staring. He is very stubborn and i will admit he doesnt respect me like i want. He doesnt listen when there are distractions. He has bitten me in the face (cause that was closest to his mouth), but not out of anger/rage, it was because we had to muzzle him to clip his toe nail that was causing him to limp, but no success. After a few minutes, i went to comfort him while he was laying down, as i was getting up, he lifted his head and did a double nip on forehead that i needed stitches. I think he thought i may have been trying another attempt. Anyways, we hired a trainer who put a prong collar on him for the first time and she tried to walk him, he got aggressive and bit her foot. She came a second time and put a prong collar on, ecollar, and a chain to restrain him. Needless to say there was no progress. So now i am trying a different approach, he is now attending group aggression classes 3 times a week, with a trainer supervising. We completed week 1. The 3rd class, i used a prong collar and put a basket muzzle on him as i saw what he did with the last trainer. He would not stop going for my feet, protesting, screaming. After i battled him for what seemed like forever (5 mins). I chose not to stop but keep walking slowly and when he felt the pressure he immediately got up and walked right with me. the rest of the 30 minute session he was walking nice, when i stopped i did a short quick upright tug for him to sit and he was cooperating. there were 7 other people with their dogs there too and he was not worrying about them. I now stand behind the prong collar for a training tool. I didn’t have to tell him to sit or heel, he just knew to do it and pay attention, i didnt have to communicate to him that he is straying or pulling, he just became very in tune with what i was trying to do after we got over his tantrums.
