To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we do not 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.
We had our 88lb dog tied to this outside and we are not sure how but he broke it. We are lucky that a neighbor knew him so she stayed with him until I went out but this should not have happened at all. What if he had run into the road. This was supposed to be strong enough for 1700 lb break strength...
Do not buy this product if you have a strong dog. It will not hold!
Very disappointing as we purchased this only last month.
Cable is a bit thinner than expected but it works--seems durable, and sufficient for my needs. Snaps are good--i intend to keep them out of the weather and will oil them to keep rust away (previous experience taught this). I tie my 130 lb St. Bernard cross out--not for extended periods, but for an hour or so here and there when I need to keep her out of the way while I work with horses or whatever. She is not hard on tie outs and this cable holds her no problem.
Have only had this outside with my dog for a week and some. And she got it tangled even though it wasn't supposed to and the outside has broken leaving the wire exposed. I have a feeling that it wont be long before the wire breaks from being exposed to the elements. Would not repurchase. Said 1700lb break force, but only for dogs up to 100lbs when you get the packaging. They should be more specific as I figured that would be lots for my girl but when I got it and seen for up to 100lbs i knew that it probably wasn't going to last. They should tell you the dog weight not what break strength it has, as I have a pretty strong girl who I'm sure will break through this at some point. Makes it a waste of money for me. Might be better for a dog 50lbs and under.
This cable is strong. I have a 110lb American bulldog and he Started chasing another dog while camping. He then realized he was on his tie out when he was flipping over backwards when he hit the end of the cable. In the end he learned a lesson and we learned how strong this product is. I would recommend this cable to anyone.
Exactly what was needed for tie out. Seems sturdy enough as my mastiff has not broken it like the last one (she is getting older and doesn’t try to break through it on a run). This is a bit shorter so dogs don’t get to a full run. Cheaper than most in stores. So far no rust and has been out for a while.
Bought this for our Rotti, just got it/ used it today, she's a little over 100lbs so beyond what the product capacity is but she is SO happy to be able to hang out in the yard with us now!! We've used a tree strap around our maple tree and attached the cable to it. She has a fairly strong prey drive so we will see very soon how it holds up to her seeing a squirrel or chipmunk!
I have it attached on a zip line across our yard for our Husky. I noticed the plastic has many cracks and the wire inside is starting to rust, but it works great, the plastic was to be expected to go eventually, especially if it is exposed to weather and a dog chewing on it.
I live in labrador and we get a awful lot of snow so that i need to tie my dog when she goes out otherwise she could just walk over the fence! The vinyle cover quickly cracked in very many spots and just couple months, the cable snapped and my dog was roaming free!
