Look and see if you can find one of the runs that uses an overhead line. Basically, it is a horizontal wire that you run between two stationary objects (trees, garage and house, etc.), and then have a vertical line attached to that with a ring so it can slide down the horizontal line.   This gives the dog side-to-side mobility, and well as some front to back mobility, but greatly lessens the chance of getting entangled. Be sure to watch the dog on it for the first few weeks, if she's that tangle prone.

Another idea would be a dog run (chain link box). They sell them at Lowe's and Home Depot.
