Is your contract legal and binding? It may not be if the land isn't
yours. Do you have a lawyer that can look at it? You'd want one good in
tenant law and one good in property law to tell you how your situation
applies to you
This doesn't sound fun.

My opinion from what I know, is that you are correct.  A letter
the issue and your request for accommodations should be sufficient.  The
states that you must have fair enjoyment of your home, not equal access.

That's why emotional support animals are allowed.  Anyhow, if it were
I'd send the letter requiring signature confirmation so they can't
they didn't get it.  I'd also include something that until the backyard 
complies with the terms of your agreed upon contract you will need to 
exercise Mitsy in the front yard.   Perhaps that will inspire them to
harder at fulfilling their end of the bargain, if they are really that
at the idea of you using your front yard.

I'm not sure about the specific circumstances of your living arrangement
the local leash laws, but here you can have your dog off leash in your
yard fence or no fence.  that doesn't violate the leash laws.  It's only

when the untrained beasts see me and my dog and take off running and
their yard that it becomes a legal issue. *smile*

Best of luck,
