What are the benefits of tethering a puppy?

Tethering gives monitoring, preventing your puppy from straying off and pottying in improper locations. Tether the dog while everyone is in the same room, such as when everyone is eating in the dining room or watching a movie in the family room. This prevents accidents, your dog from straying off, and your dog from gnawing on inappropriate stuff. Tethering also allows you to take your dog for walks without having to keep an eye on it every step of the way.

Puppies can be difficult to housebreak, so having a tether available helps prevent accidents in those areas where you cannot watch him. If your pup gets into something he should not, then you can simply pull on the tether and he will come back to you!

Finally, if you think your dog is about to get into something dangerous, such as someone with a gun, then you can use the tether to restrain him instead of trying to hold him back. This way nobody gets hurt and you can continue with your day without worrying about it anymore.

So next time you are out walking your puppy, give tethering a try! It may seem like a small thing, but it can make a big difference in ensuring your pet's safety and keeping him close to home.
