Can I keep my dog tied up or restrained to a stationary object?

No. As per state bill SB 1578, it is illegal to tether, fasten, chain, tie or restrain a dog to a dog house, tree, fence, or other stationary object. The new law states a dog can be attached to a running line, cable, pulley, or trolley system that allows the dog free movement. It is important for public safety and the dog's welfare that a dog be properly and humanely restrained when restraint is required. For more information call the Police Department at 559-665-8600.
