California bans lengthy dog tethering

California’s governor has signed a new law that makes it illegal to tether a dog to a stationary object for more than three hours.

“This bill helps protect dogs from cruelty, and enhances public safety by preventing aggressive animal behavior that can result from inhumane tethering,” Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger said in a release.

The offense is punishable by a fine not to exceed $1,000 per dog and/or up to six months in a county jail, the governor’s office said.
