When we're at FS CG's we tie a rope between 2 trees & attach 8-10' lead on the rope so it will slide along the rope between the tress. This allows poochie dog to roam around & keeps the lead up off the ground. JMTC

We use an exercise pen. The dogs relax and so do we.

This is what we do, although we still have our "blonde" female managing to wrap herself around the tree about half the time.

we also forgo the ties/cables and use ex-pens. No more tangles! And more relaxed dogs.

We use the spiral stake in the ground with the swivel and about 6'-8' of plastic covered cable. The trick for us is putting the stake so the dog has just enough cable to lay next to whoever in the family it usually lays next to or is the leader of the pack (meaning who the dog listens to the best. We lay an old cotton blanket on the ground next to that persons chair so the dog can lay there and the dog is usually good to go and happy. No obstacles within the 8' circle means no tangling of the cable.

We have steel cables for each dog. One dog usually gets 'hitched' around one of the tires and one goes around either the picnic table or nearest tree. The trick is to keep the cables short enough so they don't braid them.Make sure they are comfortable and put an old blanket down on the ground. No hot sun and plenty of water. Also, try to position the chairs,etc. so the dogs don't knock them over. Accidents do happen. If my dogs were smaller, I would use the portable fences.

Our big dog, Kelley, loves to lay under the trailer. So, I took one of those coated cables and "bridled" it between the landing legs and axle of the 5er. Then took her short leash, 3 foot, and latched it to the cable. She's able "slide" back and forth along the cable and come out from under the trailer without knocking chairs and tables over.
