Your dog just wants to be free. But also? She totally can't be trusted. So the SUREswivel—an anchored leash that lets her wander around safely—is a good compromise for the two of you.
The SUREswivel has six nine-inch stakes to secure the module into the ground, as well as a loop for you to hook your dog's leash to. Unless your pooch is the canine equivalent of Houdini, she's not getting far, because the tether can apparently withstand 1000 pounds of pet pull force. And it's made so the pup can move in a 360-degree radius without getting tangled. The thing costs $70, and seems like a good solution for camping or picnicking. Besides, you can't really put a price on a dog that won't run away, right? Right? [Solutions.com]
