I have a 50# Staffie (luttle Pitbull) and she is all muscle. My wife bought this thing and I thought, no way this holds her, I don't care if it says 1,000# pull force or not. Well, I got it, still laughed at it until I used my impact driver to put the bolts in the ground. Clipped on the 30 foot lead and hooked up the pup (she is 6). Suffice it to say, she saw something interesting and went running and came to a dead stop at 30 feet. This thing didn't even budge! Pup is okay and hasn't done that a second time.
This is awesome IF you pay attention and are a responsible person owned by a Furman. Reasons: 1. If you have a territorial owner, like I do, and have a long lead, 50', please do not use the stakes provided. Fasten the "tie out" to a "permanent structure", or else it will not stand the rigors of your furmans testimonies of "THIS IS MINE, THATS MINE, ITS ALL MINE" 😉 2. If you use the longer cable, like I do, and it rains, that softens the ground, aka, the attachment area, OOPS, the furmissle is now preparing for FREE launch.....or, we, lunch! 😳 3. PLEASE just make sure that you pay attention to the fact that, of given the lead, it doesn't matter the point of time, it becomes greatly stressed, every time they pull. Inspect it each time you have to tie them to it, for their safety, and the general publics.🤣 All attachment areas will weaken over time, and being responsible helps your furbabies stay safe ❤️🐾 I have 4 Cattle Dogs, 3 of which think they own everything they see. Not good. So, at very rare times, like when the: mail lady, UPS, FED EX, unsuspecting visitors to our rural farm, arrive, they have to be contained, QUICKLY, and put on aircraft cable, with climbing clips 🤣. And this "tie out" is fastened into a 6x6 in concrete! 😳❤️🐾 And it is PERFECT!!!!
I was hesitant to believe the "doesn't tangle" claim as frankly, its not that different then the spiral screw in dog leashes. Combine that with the fact that the only thing holding it to the earth was some lag bolts and I was fully prepared to hit the return button after first use. But, two things happened. First and most important, the company notified me 2 days after purchasing and told me that there was a defect in some of their batches and if mine looked or acted the way they said it could, then I should let them know to send a new one. It so happens that mine did indeed have a minor defect (the spinning ball could get stuck on a bad weld) and I responded to the email as soon as I found out. They immediately sent me a new one and didn't even require I send back the old one. Second thing that happened is the first time I used these (with rope not wire...thats probably key) was that my dogs never once got tangled. I had two large german shepherds on one tie down with a single rope looped between them (tie down in the middle). They roamed the campsite, ate, drank, did their business, and never once were tangled. It also never came loose or even showed signs of coming loose. The product is amazing, the company is even better. Don't hesitate.
At first I loved it. I have a 105 lb Rottweiler and it held her. Unfortunately, only after a few months, the clip that holds the lead broke (likely rusted from weather). Now I'm once again I'm searching for a good and sturdy dog for out. 😔
Product highlights state, "Reliable & Secure, No Pull Out Of Ground: Constructed with high quality steel for superior strength and durability, can stand up to 150 lbs. Has been tested in stable ground to securely hold 1000 lbs. of pull force (not suit for soft sandy or muddy ground )". Well, this is not true. it was installed correctly in firm CT soil and my young, small sized doberman was able to yank it right out. Thank God she didn't run out into the street. I want to return this unsafe device for a full refund and Amazon or seller will not allow it as it is 14 days past the 30-day return date. This happened the other day.
My dog who is 7 yeard old goes around in a circle all day The part I like is he doesn't get tangled up. The bad part is he has no grass due to him going around in a circle. So when it rains the screws come out of the ground. Does not hold good in mud
