Tethering is allowed for the purposes of exercise and relief of bodily functions. Tethering cannot be used as a permanent method of restraint.
(C) Acceptable methods of restraint on the owner’s property shall include secure fencing, invisible fencing, and tethering. If a dog is kept on the premises by a secure fence, the secure fence must be adequate enough to contain the animal. If such fence is an effective, working invisible fence, then there must be a visible, permanent sign on the premises stating that there is an invisible fence. Tethering may be used for the purposes of exercise and relieving bodily functions. However, the use of tethering for the primary or permanent method of restraint is prohibited.
