Chaining a dog up  24/7 is inhumane & should be banned!

Mission Statement

We are committed to raising awareness and speaking out against the barbaric act of chaining 'man's best friend'. No dog should be born to endure a life of imprisonment on the end of a chain. Chaining causes physical and psychological damage to dogs  by preventing them from moving around or socializing with other dogs and people. Chained dogs often become aggressive as a means of defence and through frustration. No civilized society should condone such behaviour. Chaining dogs in Europe and elsewhere should be made illegal and stopped.

About Us

'Zeus' was rescued from a life permanently chained up in the corner of a field. To re-socialize and train him we walked 800km of the 'Camino de Santiago' which proved to be the perfect means of rehabilitation. Like most rural areas of Spain, the tradition of chaining dogs outside is widespread. They remain permanently tethered to a short chain, alongside a bucket of water and if they are lucky some form of shelter from the elements. To view an epic, one month adventure with 8 formerly chained or abandoned dogs, please find a video of the journey on the videos page. Check out the Latest News page for the 2017
