The only thing about the stake out.... Years ago when I read "No Bad Dogs" by Barbara Woodhouse, something stuck with me. She said never to put a dog on a stake out because the dog can get frustrated when getting to the end of the rope. I can't recall the rest of what was said (can look it up if anyone is interested) but she said if the dog has to be tied outside to use a clothes line so the dog can move back and forth and not be restricted.
Her advice may be more important when a dog is left outside alone and not when our little ones are out with us for short periods of time, however.
