Do you have reason to be concerned? If she's got a habit of chasing prey or something like that I would use a longer leash (10-15') and hold that rather than a 30' tie-out. Or use a prong or e-collar if you need the control. Our dog is obsessed with rabbits, squirrels, etc but on the tie-out he knew exactly how much line he had and wouldn't check himself hard. Even playing with other dogs he knew to chase in large circles and it wasn't an issue.
