Product for tethering a dog when there's nothing to tether it to?

My partner and I were recently enjoying some margaritas on the beach (rough life, I know), but there was no where to tie up our pup's leash. My partner just held the leash in his hand the whole time. Not *that* inconvenient, but like, it would have been better if he'd had both hands free (better to hold a taco than a leash!). Does anyone know of a product for solving this? I looked at the stakes you can get for backyard tie ups but they seemed kind of aggressive to whip out at a park and screw into public land. Help a girl (and her pup!) out!

Have you tried a waist leash? Might be called a hands free leash. No specific product recommendation, but our breeder uses these regularly. Maybe we'll pick one up for the new dog.

Waist leashes are the way to go for this, unless your dog is strong enough to pull you down (or tip you over if you’re sitting) :).

I have one of the screw tethers for camping and your right I don't bring those to parks. I too recommend the waist leash but we also have a long rope leash for these situations. My hack/tip is that I put the handle on my ankle so I'm hands free :)

I always keep my basic leash hooked up with a carabiner AND a jumbo carabiner. That guarantees I can hook it to almost anything (like the leg of my chair).
