Very sturdy. Our puppy is 10 lbs. but am sure it would be great for big dogs.

My dog is a complete nut and weights 60lbs. Our backyard is woods so it’s full of animals. He will run out full force and the stake stays in the ground. Who knew that that big orange desk would be the saving grace of our backyard!

Secure and provides confidence
Perfect. Holds steady once screwed in fully. The screw is deep and depending on the ground type can take some effort to screw in fully. Trick is to screw in half way, remove, pour some water into hole and then re screw. Once in it holds a very active dog perfectly.

I wish I’d bought this sooner – highly recommended

I bought this as our dog is very reactive toward other dogs, and I don’t trust that he wouldn’t jump our fence. We bought two of these, together with a line which clips on each stake, we run the line through the handle of his leash, so he has a good 10 meters that he can play with in the garden, but we have peace of mind that if a passing dog surprises us, he’ll not get away.

For context our dog is a 23kg, very muscly staffy who has no qualms about flinging himself around like a lunatic at the sight of another dog. I would expect this would have no problems holding the strongest of dogs.

I would say, I was worried about if it would hold given it rains a lot where we are and the ground can feel quite soft – borderline squishy at times, But I haven’t had to use the soft ground attachment. I would imagine that would really only be necessary for very boggy ground or a sandy beach for example.

    Worked Great!! We had a camping trip and both dogs were required to be tethered or leashed at all times on the camping grounds. Our dogs are between 60 and 70 lbs, but they're also not big pullers cause they're elderly and mostly just slept and hung out so I don't know that I'd recommend tethering more than 100lbs. of rambunctious behavior to this stake. Make sure you have a screw driver or a hammer with a solid handle so you can turn the tie out all the way into the ground and anchor it properly. On a personal note I don't recommend tying dogs outside permanently without proper shelter or housing in harsh temperatures or severe weather conditions. ****ALWAYS be aware of your animals well-being and make sure they're well fed and given clean water daily.****

    This stake really is as amazing as advertised! We’ve used it over a year now with our 40 lb Shar Pei (who is built like a tank) and are still just as happy with it as the first day we used it. We have, however, been through 3 cables that attach to the stake as we haven’t discovered an equally amazing indestructible cable, yet. It is important to install properly or it will not work as designed. Ensure the orange part of the locking mechanism on the stake is twisted firmly into the part of the locking mechanism placed in the ground. The part in the ground should not move freely once installed or the plug of grass inside may become dislodged and prevent the locking feature from working. I did encounter a few areas where the ground was either too hard or too soft to install properly, so I just moved it to a different location. We did not leave it outside in the harsh winter months, so I don’t know how it would perform in those conditions but it was left in the ground (moved locations a couple times) the rest of the year. This is also very easy to travel with and we have confidence our dog will stay safely on leash and enjoy the outdoors with us wherever we go.
