How to make a chain setup

    I don't think I'd even use these for a pup. We used 3' metal stakes with a flange welded to the top, to make temporary chain spots for our pups. The pups are almost 8 months old and it won't be long that these won't hold them anymore. As soon as hubby is home for a few days, he'll be putting axles in.

    Question: My chain always gets rusted, what can I do to get rid of the rust and protect the chain? I was told to sand some of the rust off, and rub the remaining rust with coke and steel wool then finally use some sorta paint(I'm not sure what you call it). I'm not too sure about painting the chain cos my dog may chew it...

    There is supposed to be an anti-rust paint, but I don't know. Does your dog chew his chain a lot?

    What are chain setups for? Are you supposed to do that for your dog? In Florida it is illegal to chain your dog in the yard:confused: Just curious,
    new puppy owner..

    Chain set-ups are to keep your dog properly contained.

    Yep, they are for a dog.

    I never heard of chaining being illegal in Florida.

    The problem with the chain being painted is if your dog is active in chains, the paint easily chip off. If the dog is also chewing the chain.. might be hazardous.

    In Palm Beach county it is illegal to chain your dog during the hours of 10am-5pm because of the heat. wonder if my puppy might be an escape artist one day:eek:

    It is very possible. I would never trust a fence alone to keep any dog in.

    Thanks CoolHand, anything else I should know or do? Our wooden fence is 6ft high and concrete all around the bottom. So no digging, but jumping??
    Josie is 4 months and 20lbs or so:)

    Jumping is entirely possible in the future. If it's just a place for her to play while you are out there supervising, it should be fine.

    Where do I get a chain? what kind? for a 4 month 25lb puppy?
    Found out next door neighbor has a 85lb pit bull/boxer mix:eek:

    stupid question/observation. so when you want to walk your dog do you have to remove the collar since there is no quick release?

    question based on the pictures in the original post
