This ordinance prohibits dogs from being chained or tethered to any inanimate object. Dogs may only be kept on a tether held in the guardian’s hand, such as a leash.
Section 3-40 (b): It shall be unlawful for the owner, caregiver, or keeper of any dog to restrain or anchor a dog by means of a tether, chain, cable, rope, or cord, unless the tether or other restraint is being personally held by the owner, caregiver, or keeper of the dog. No dog may be attached to any inanimate object.
