Picture of Camping with the dogs made easier
Do you love your dogs? Do you love camping? Have you found that tying a couple dogs up in small area causes you to leave the camping chair quite often and have to untie their leads? I have, it seemed like I was spending half my time around the fire having to unravel or untie their leads from each other. I also found that you can't always find a place to tie up 4 dogs at camp spots.
My remedy, a single tie point for 2 dogs and less tangling for them.. I hope this comes in handy for you

Step 1: The Problem

Tangled leads and dogs stuck together.. Really doesn't make them happy..
 
and if you tie the 2 dogs together, do they learn teamwork ?

I wish... wouldnt that be nice... They learn that they have to like each other though..

Interesting idea, but I prefer going camping places where I can just let the dogs go free, so this ain't too much of a problem.

So do we. But we rescue dogs so they are new dogs a lot of the time. Can't always just let dogs go.. one sight of a squirrel and we would never see them again. The grey husky in the picture is a sled dog. If he were to be free it would be 2 miles before he looked back and said "where did my master go"... he sees a trail and has his mind set on pulling until he sees the end...
so this keeps dogs in our camp so we can bring them home safely..

But.... I don't understand... what is this accomplishing? Why don't the dogs still get tangled up? What's the swiveling thing for?

If you tie 2 dog lead to the same place they seem to like to play this game and twist them over and over and over again... the dogs eventually are so tangled they can only get about a foot apart. Then we have to walk over and unhook one and take a few minutes to untwist the leads... with the swivel they can play hopscotch all they want with each other and they will twist it some but any pulling on it lets the end untwist the whole lead.. they can still hog tie each other at times but without twisting leads it is so much better...
