    It varies.

    Sometimes just a slip lead and keys(poo bags are in pretty much every trouser pocket or up my sleeves :blushing:).

    Other times gundog bag complete with dummies, whistle, treats, lunge line, harness, quick dry towel, camera, mobile etc.

    I don't take an alarm because literally no bugger would hear it or care anywhere around me. The local petrol garage got robbed three times, once in October and twice in about March I think it was this year. The alarm went off every single time and not one bugger in the whole village went to see what it was :rolleyes: (about 10pm at night both times so not even that late).

    I should always take a phone; always did when out with the horses and I've got better at it with Rupert now but I still forget sometimes.

    Going to get a better gundog bag though as the one I've got is pants. I'm about 5'9 and every time its come out with me so far the strap has loosened itself so that the bag bashes me in the back of the knee and its really annoying :lol:

    I take poo bags, spare leads, treats, flexi-lead(for Heidi when we get off road!:)), mini first aid kit(just gauze, scissors, bandage, sterile water and tweezers), spare poo bags.....emergency spare poo bags!:lol:
    Just had to change to a bigger bag though as the warmer weather means water and bowl too!:rolleyes:

    It sounds like some of you are setting out on a weekend expedition not taking the dog for a daily walk!
    I just take my dog and usually a lead. My phone is always in my pocket anyway.
