A corkscrew for safety

TILLY wouldn’t have fallen into the river (see below) if she had been restrained by being attached to her corkscrew.

In situations where she is likely to become over-excited and lose all common sense – which, after all, Jack Russells are good at – this simple gadget is the perfect answer, as long as care is taken to ensure that it is screwed in as far as it will go.

You just have to be careful that you don’t strike an immoveable flint just beneath the surface because, if you do, there is no choice but to find a better spot.

Tilly demonstrates how the tether works, with her lead attached to it once the metal has been screwed firmly into the ground.
