One other little bit of explanation - in a Dogloo or dog house the only option the tortoise has to move away from the hot spot is to leave the shelter, something he doesn't want to do.

Uh, I don't dislike the leash idea, but isn't that something a removable clip like a dog collar would do? I've seen people making leashes and I made one out of elastic bands for my RES which I never use since it makes it look like turtle bdsm and she crawls fine without it in the yard under supervision.
