To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
This is the second one I bought because I accidentally left the first one out in the rain and the clips rusted almost overnight. Thought we’d try it again for the price. This is great for my 25 lbs dog. It gives her a lot of freedom to run and play. The cable never gets tangled around the cork screw. My only complaint are the clips. They are already starting to rust within a few weeks even though this one has never been left out in the weather.
Giving 4 starts because the metal swivel has bent already, but its a small piece of metal and it still works fine. I have a 4 month old golden (30lbs) with a lot of energy so I don't think I'd recommend for large, full grown dogs.
Overall, works as promised and does a good job. I have a very small dog (7 lb Pomeranian, basically a cat) however, so the clip is a bit heavy for him. I could NOT find one that had a lighter one. Just a heads up.
I thought the spike would of been longer because my yard is sand. I also thought the cable would of been a heavier gauge. All things considered, my dog was already trained so there hasn't been any issues. I don't think it would of been robust enough when he was younger.
Had it for almost three months now and working fine. Was very difficult to get this into the ground (live in AZ and the ground is packed hard and sun baked) so we had to do some work to get it installed. Seems sturdy and my 48 lb pit mix hasn't broken it yet!
The stake works well. The length of the cord works out nicely for around the yard. I have a smaller dog (10lbs) and the clip for thats used to hook onto the dogs collar is really heavy. So it's definitely durable but heavy.
