Back in PA, I wouldn't trust anything less than a cable run (between two hard-anchors) or the base of a tree. I knew several dogs who've pulled out the corkscrew-type tie-outs with very little effort (one actually figured out that running counter-clockwise would loosen it enough to pull it out).
We live up in BC, Canada so the only thing we have to worrie about is snow, LOL. But he would be around everybody and would not be left unattendid and it would be in the summer so there really would be nothing to worrie about.
