I'm Lucy, and I'd be happy to answer your questions today.

What Louisiana law says is that a dog owner may not allow their pet to "run at large on any unenclosed land" or to trespass on someone else's land. La. Rev. Stat., Section 3:2771. So, if you're on fenced-in private property, or when you're inside, you can let your dog run free. However, you would have to keep her leashed if standing in an unenclosed front yard, even private property.
