Unattended tethering of an animal is prohibited.
§ 96.26 USE OF ROPES, CHAINS OR CORDS PROHIBITED.
No animal shall be tied or fastened by any rope, chain, or cord except under the direct supervision of the animal’s owner. Restrained animals must wear a properly fitted collar or harness made of leather or nylon, not of the choker type. This is not to prohibit the proper use of choker collars in the training of animals. The tying device shall be attached to the animal’s collar or harness. If a chain is used, such chain shall not have a total weight of more than one-eighth of the restrained animal’s body weight.
