i agree with everything everyone else is saying. its dangerous to leave a dog tied up outside when your not at home. the dog could choke or break the tie. i myself have a tie out chain for my dog, i will NEVER allow him to be on the chain while i'm not home. its just not safe, i also don't think that kennels are very safe either.the dog can dig out of them, other dogs, and wild animals can also dig to get inside the kennel. yes crates are pricey but they are the best and safest for your pet.
