I've got a thief problem, I want to chain up some dogs at my entrance to stop him. But won't the dogs starve to death?

I'm not sure how dogs eat in the first place, I've never seen one take food from my stockpiles.

Animals which don't require a pasture can be safely chained (or better yet against ambushers: put in a sealed raised glass box outside the entrance) for as long as you want to, though they will obviously die of old age at some point and need to be replaced. This includes dogs, cats and pigs from the default "domestic animals" list.
