Oklahoma House Bill 2993, the “Humane Tether Act of 2022,” would establish specific minimum requirements for the lawful tethering or confinement of dogs outside. The bill would make it unlawful to use heavy chains, to leave dogs exposed to inclement or extreme weather, and to tether or confine them in a way that exposes them to unsanitary or dangerous conditions. However, the bill would allow the use of tethering devices, such as trolleys, that specifically are made for dogs when the other outdoor safety and sanitation confinement requirements are met.
