I have visions of you driving off forgetting the dog was tied to the bumper!



You are so right to say this. Indeed, it did happen a few years back in America. People unloading the groceries from their car, man drove off with two dogs tied to the back bumper. You can guess the rest. Don't tie your dogs to anything that can be moved.

I'd be hesitant to put the dog in the car if the weather is hot, sunny, humid unless it was in the shade.
No expense spared in pursuit of a bargain ;)

So would I. I only went for a pee and to brush my teeth.

Thanks everyone, good to get some opinions.

I've not been camping with my pooch yet, but when I do, I'll be looking one of those corkscrew like ground steaks and a long lead. Unfortunately I cant post a picture for some reason, but you can get them pretty cheap from Pets At Home and Amazon. They look like handy anchor points though I'm not sure the ones I've seen so far would stop my Ridgeback if she really wanted to follow me to the toilet....
