    Thanks! I'll look into them. The tree works and is safe except she wraps herself around it. She's never out without me or more than a little while but that would work better

    Please read the thread. The chain doesn't go around the dogs neck. You use a wide, flat collar.

    Because I prefer a chain set up. And the particular dog that I do put out ,for an hour or so at a time, will chew through a cable. I use a pretty light chain. It probably weighs two pounds total. Your point?

    You know, I'm not sure your intentions on this forum. But you really don't seem to be here to learn anything or get along with anyone. You will not find many here who act so immature or who have your fur mommy views. You seem like a very angry person.

    Before moving to my dream home. I had many nightmares trying to tie down my rottie due to him like chasing after squirrel. He love protecting the backyard from other animals. Now I just moved to this dream house of mine. The fence are pretty low for a rottie. He can reach the top when he fully extend his body up.

    So I google and see what other ideas and techniques are and hopefully learn a few tricks. Of course 99% of it is discussion about abusing. Found this thread and I was lucky. Saw a lots of idea and its very useful info.

    I never though of an swivels or even think of using it since most of the one I saw were very weak. My rottie broke an 400lb chain (Dont really remember the rate but its pretty high) but that also the chain is twisted. Brought stillwater swivels and its absolutely heavy duty. Got those O-ring from him also. I use quick link instead of lap link. Been using them for a long time and it never failed me.

    Got myself a few customized collar from Shane. Cant wait. Also glade this thread existed. Even tho I am currently do not own an beautiful pit. The idea helps for all.

    ^^ Sounds like a good set-up,on the quick link I use is 3/8 and put a dab of loctite red on the threads.A rotti hits pretty hard (twice the weight of a bulldog)!.

    Yes sir. He pull really hard against the chain. I find it very funny tho. When I used chain. He will pull like they were not even there. Recently switched to cable instead of chain and he have not pull at all.

    1- 1/4in Forged Swivel
    1- Retriever Tie-Out Stake w/Fins (Extra Large dog size-up to 150LB)
    2- Steel rings on his collar (Not pictured)

    Chuck that quick link(unless you did more to it than just screw it together) clasp, and stake.

    I have some questions about the stake part.

    I`ve been using a chain tie out with my rottie for awhile and been using different ones,but he is really good at bending and braking the actual stake part. A car axle sounds good but not sure where to get one or how to work with it. Also now where I live the ground is really hard,rocky and full of roots making it difficult to get them in all the way also with all the rain here in the North west I've also had rusting and sticking on parts. I've also have thieves steal chains for scrap metal,so don't want something that can be pulled easily. Any advise on what is best to use in my circumstances would be welcome.

    You can use a metal fence post, heavy gauge. Thats what we did. We had someone weld a top on it as it was supposed to be a substitue for an axel in form but the Texas soil wouldnt let us get it that far down lol. As long as its solidly in the ground at least a foot or two you shouldn't have too much of an issue. You could always cement it into the ground too.
