Keeping your dog on a lead at the campsite can be compulsory in quite a few cases, and also prevents your canine companion bounding over to other people who may not appreciate them quite as much. This lead can extend up to five metres, making it ideal for still allowing your four-legged friend to sniff and explore the surrounding area.
