Would the mini Intelli-Stayk™ hold a 15-20 lb miniature poodle, or would you recommend the larger Stayk?
Answer: The “mini” is designed to hold a dog weighing up to 20 pounds. Note that very loose soil could be the limiting factor with all Tie-Outs, but the mini is undoubtedly strong enough for most dogs up to 20 pounds. If you have some concerns about the looseness of your soil or you have an extremely active 20-pound dog, the Intelli-Stayk™ would be a great choice.
I have a 15 lb. pug. She spins in circles when she gets ready to do her business. Her line gets knotted when she spins. Will this line knot up?
Answer: The unique design creates a raised platform with no exposed stake below. It is virtually impossible for it to tangle when inserted per instructions.
I have an unusually strong 25 lb. pug and need a temporary stake for a night of camping. Would this be solid and safe enough and easy to use?
Answer: The standard Intelli-Stayk™ should be more than satisfactory for your 25-pound pug. Your dog should not be able to cause any damage to the Intelli-Stayk™. But if your soil is very loose due to high sand content, you may want to upgrade to the Intelli-Stayk™ with soft soil attachment.
Does the mini Intelli-Stayk swivel 360 degrees?
Answer: Yes! There is no separate swivel. You attach your cable directly to the shaft. The low profile of the Surface-Lock™ allows your cable to go around 360 degrees without getting tangled or caught on the stake.
