I would but trying to take a Great Dane with a dodgy leg and a young lab  on leads is not fun especially in the snow:shock:

 

To get to flat fields I have to drive half a mile up steep terrain that a normal car won't go so I'm a bit stuck.  When we get to the top the fields are flat and my big girl can get a good walk and the young one goes off in the woods.

They are now going to plague the life out of me until I can get it unstuck:upset:

handbrake

likely the handbrake frozen on. It happens with mine all too frequently over the winter. Its is the most awkward thing to try and de-ice too! Good luck!

Great advice

thanks, the car is on flat ground at the top so handbrake will be off from now on.  God if that had froze on the way back I would of been in deep doo doo.

 

Both of them on leads is fine when there is only one of them, but when they are together they are both trying to get a nose in front.  Done it once and never again.

If you have enough boards about, lean them again the side off your vehicle so that you can close off the underside, all the heat you generate whilst the engine is running will build up quicker to defrost the handbrake.

Leave in gear and just incase you could use two wooden wedges one infront and one behind a wheel.
