The Drury Inn hotel chain is a well-kept pet friendly secret, and one of our favorite places to stay. With 130 properties in 20 states throughout the south and mid-west, they bring southern hospitality to the mid-scale hotel experience with a free hot breakfast, beverages and hot appetizers in the evening, and free wifi. The warm welcome extends to the pets – dogs and cats are welcome to join you with no additional fees.

Sometimes it seems as if I've spent my whole life in a crusade to get people to stop using choke chains as an everyday collar for their dogs. And sometimes it seems a futile effort, since not a day goes by that I don't see a dog with a choke chain for a collar, the license hanging from the ring as proof that the animal wears the deadly chain all the time.

This chained sled dog has no shelter and dug a hole in the packed dirt for a bed. Visit the to learn about the cruelty involved in dog sledding and racing. Most sled dogs are chained continually when not working. Tethering or chaining a dog under most state laws means that a person ties a dog with a rope or line to a stationary object. While the laws themselves vary from state to state, they do have several consistent features. Some laws that address tethering allow a dog to be tethered for a reasonable period of time. California prohibits tethering a dog to a stationary object, but allows a dog to be tethered “ not exceed three hours in a 24-hour period, and is “no longer than is necessary for the owner to complete a temporary task that requires the dog to be restrained.”By direct use I am talking about "jerking" or "popping" the leash to "correct" a dog. By indirect I'm talking about dogs that pull on the leash on their own, thus causing themselves damage without the owner realizing it (again: this is scientifically proven many times). Couple this with a "locked" choke chain (a choke chain that is fitted the wrong way), and your dog is in serious trouble.
If you're concerned about not being able to control your dog without a choke chain, you should consult with a positive reinforcement trainer, and substitute with a gentle leader-collar (or anti-pull harness) instead. .
With a throw chain, I don't throw it at the dog, I throw it over their heads. Dogs hate things flying out of the sky down on them and I generally toss it a few feet over their heads, not directly at them. The dog is startled, it turns to the human – me – and I say, positively, "come" and the dog will run towards me and get praised or even a treat. I'm sure there are some people who don't care for this training method, that is their choice and their business.
