    Do what I do - take the absolute minimum with you when you go to a dog park. The car/housekeys on a lanyard around your neck. The mobile phone/driver's licence and a couple of dollars in a shirt pocket with a button. Poo bags, in case the dispenser has run out, in your trouser pockets, and you're set. And I never go during school holidays, or after school hours.

    who would leave keys on the bin...

    I've had keys fall out of my pocket, I'm paranoid about it now. I have a bum bag with a zip up bag inside it, and that's where my keys go now. I have also been known to attach them inside my pocket with large safety pin.

    I do know people who put their keys and phone and other personal items into a doggy bag... and sometimes the doggy bag breaks. And if they think nobody is going to touch the doggy bag, um. I put stray doggy bags in the bin. And I get mad at people who leave a loaded doggy bag on the ground, especially at the beach.

    I do a vague check to make sure the somebody else's doggy bag I'm about to chuck does not contain hard stuff like keys, but it's not a hands on check...

    So what I'm saying is - don't put your keys into a dog poo bag either.

    I usually put mine in my pocket, I think I just learned a valuable lesson!

    Some little boys clearly. It was lucky that lady overheard the little sister telling mum! and then bothered to tell you.

    What an experience!

    LMAO @ Pinkest yes that is what the dear child was being called!

    Gold-Dog I do take the bare minimum everything else stays home or in the car, all I had were my keys, my phone, and doggy treats/poo bag. Because the dogs had hidden my treat bag I didn't have it with me and my keys would usually be in the front zipper of the treat bag, I have a new one and they will either go in that or in a zip/button up pocket from now on. Just glad I had my phone on me and not left it in the car!

    Hya - There wasn't really anywhere else for the people to leave them (this is a massive 3 acre park and there were loads of people there so the person who found them couldn't reasonably be expected to ask everyone) and she notified someone she was leaving them there (apparently it isn't the first time so it is the regular lost keys place haha) it was just my bad luck an irresponsible parent wasn't watching their kids, because if she was he wouldn't have been able to put them in the bin! Worst of all is the fact that she knew he had done it as her daughter told her (as overheard by the other lady) and she did nothing about it!!! That makes me the maddest, sorry when your kid puts someone's keys in the bin you have to take responsibility for that and find out whose keys they were so you can let them know where their keys are.

    Haha Crested well if everyone learns a valuable lesson from my horrible experience good stuff. I will be making seconds of my car and house keys and giving them to someone so if it ever happens again I can just make a call.

    I'd make two copies I keep a spare car key inside my sock, at the side of my foot so it can't fall out, but I only have that when I'm walking Batty. My second spare set are hidden outside my house. I'm not being more specific than that. I have a number of people I could call and all work different hours. I've made it so I can make a couple of calls and anyone can help once I direct them to my keys. It's been supremely useful... I have a habit of locking keys in the car....

    Phew, glad to hear you got your keys back. Not a nice search, but at least you have them.

    My MIL lives only a few hundred metres down the raod she has has a full set to our house. If I was ever locked out, I would call her. I used to have a set in the garden in my old house, but my daughters were the only one who ever needed to use them... and they did this on a regular basis!

    Yeah I will be leaving a spare house key with my parents from now on. They are only 30 mins away and generally there is always someone home so probably my best bet. Might considered hiding one on the outside of the house but see how I go.

    I have a spare car key I just need to take it off the main set of keys and leave it in the house so if this happens again I have a spare key to get into the house and then a spare car key to go and get my car haha.

    Gosh I was soooo panicked when I realised my keys weren't on me anymore, worst realisation EVER!

    I have a spare car key, not the remote one, just for the door on my Annabelle's collar. And I have a spare remote one hidden in the car itself. It has worked several times for me.
    Except the day Annabelle stood on the remote, whilst I had left them in the car with all the dogs and shut the back tail gate.
    Rang NRMA and they told me to ring Jeep and find out which was the cheapest window to break LOL they cannot break into a Jeep. By the way it is the windscreen
    Luckily it was a very cold day and we found one of our windows just cracked and were able to get to one of the buttons eventually, setting off the alarms whilst we were doing it. Dogs slept through it all, because they were tired from a long walk. So now I hang the keys on a lanier around my neck whilst putting the dogs in

    I tend to attach lost keys to the nearest bit of fence. I use a doggy bag twisted into a "rope" if I've got nothing else. Most of the places I do walk have a chair or bit of playground equipment or something. One place (where I lost my keys - though I found them myself), has what I call "the coffee club" ie a group of dog walkers who do a few laps and then sit and have coffee and biscuits together (they bring the makings from home). We often leave found things with them - there is a table where they sit.
