The new anti-tethering ordinance is set to go into effect Sept. 4, 2009 in Fulton County, the Atlanta area of Georgia.Â
The ordinance bans all unattended chaining. Dogs may be temporarily restrained as long as the owner or keeper is present.Â Â Any chain or tether used to restrain a dog temporarily must be attached to a well-fitted collar and must not be "excessively heavy or weighted" so as to interfere with the dog’s movements.
