Camping and tie-outs?
Spring is coming and camping season! Our girls (6 & 3) have never been tied out at home. We walk them on leashes, but we usually go to off leash locations. We tend to camp off season, and in more remote places when and where they are off leash. The issue that we are working on is when we stay at more active sites, where the dogs have to be on a line. They react strongly to anything, squirrels, people, dogs, stuff they totally ignore when not restrained. It's easier if they are on a leash right with us, but that isn't always practical in a campsite so they need to be on tie-outs. I'm just not sure how to set up the situations to train them. I would say this comes up 3-4 times per year. We usually stay at more populated sites on our way to our preferred locations, so stopping in the evening and out again in the am.
So yes Della (on left) looks very heavy in this picture. It's hair, she actually weighs less the Tessa, who has been recently groomed.
