Can I have my dog tied up in my yard?

No. State law requires all pets be kept on a "lead, trolley, or pulley system" that is a minimum of 10 feet in length. Think of a laundry line in your backyard, your dog must be able to run the length of the laundry line by having him attached to it by a cable with a clip. (Health & Safety Code 821.077)
