Reminder: Dog law sets rules for tethering in the cold (and heat) ... Gov. Tom Wolf reminded citizens of the law, Act 10, in November. It makes it illegal to tether a dog for longer than 30 minutes when temperatures are below 32 or above 90 degrees Fahrenheit.

No more than 9 hours tethered in 24-hour period.
Tether must be the longer of 3 times length of dog or 10 feet.
No more than 30 minutes in 90+ or -32-degree weather.
Must have water and shade.
Must be secured by an appropriate collar — no tow or log chain, nor choke, pinch, prong, or chain collars.
Tethered space must be clear of excessive waste.
No open sores or wounds on the dog’s body.

Sad this needs to be said, none the less , thanks for doing so✌

but yet it doesn't nothing to protect dogs that are outside kenneled 24/7. their only means from the sun is in their doghouse which we all know is much hotter :(

Good luck having someone enforce the law

Sad this has to be reiterated for many people...

Not funny. I have neighbors with their dog out 24/7. And I'm told it's fine because their not leashed.
