How to make a chain setup

    I'm considering this for our new dog but one concern I have is that he might try to chew his way free. Do any of you have experience with this? I also have to find a safe spot away from cacti and away from the yard wall so he doesn't hang himself. Looking at kennels too. This is more complicated because our yard walls are only 5 ft tall.

    Some dogs do chew and will ruin thier hardware.All you can do is try it and see.Give it some time and if you dont like the results try a kennel.I have learned some dogs are just natural chewers, hole diggers , hard keepers.Some dogs that show this behavior actually learned it as a pup from watcching a hard keeper.So always keep the hard keeper type out of view from your young ones.They mimic what they see.

    Teddy, our new BBM is very strong. If I tie him to the post on my back patio and give him a raw beef bone he freaks out if I walk in the house. He can hear me in the kitchen and knows that I am a step away. He starts digging at the door really hard. If he is in the bathroom with me he digs at the door really hard. If my husband walks into the garage he digs at the garage door really hard. He is very strong willed and physically strong. His paws are bigger than my hands. I am wondering if we will need an outdoor kennel or a chain setup. I just worry about his teeth either way.

    I'm hoping that if we can get a treadmill, and adequately meet his exercise requirements, that he will not try to escape.

    I prefer chain setups but once they get old I put them in a kennel .Old dogs spend all thier time in kennels or inside my house.I have chained other breeds also and also muts.I have even saw horses on chain setups.They were not mine but I have saw it done.Chain will hold even the most pwerful of beasts.

    Yep , never put a young dog around a dog with bad habbits.The best way I found to train scent hounds is put them with a older dog that has no bad habbits and let them learn.Also just because one has bad habbits don't make him a bad dog .Same with Bulldogs if you put your young one around chain chewers and hole diggers no doubt your young will do the same.

    Very cool advice! I would also like to ask how long the chain you recommend using now I just choose and want to buy a suitable option!

    No shorter than 10'. 15 to 20 would be better.
