Rated 5 out of 5 by Emsta Perfect for taking your dog with you on the go!
I bought this about 5 years ago to take my dog camping with us and have used it much more than I would have expected. My dog loves to be out with people, but also has ADD to the extreme. He has to be on a leash at all times because I wouldn't put it past him to run off on a scent trail. With this handy tool he can always come with for a backyard BBQ at a friends house, or a camping trip near the beach. I bought a lightweight plastic hammer for camping and it works perfectly to nail down the heavy and VERY sturdy spikes. With the angled design it's impossible for him to pull out of it. He's only 35 lbs but ALL muscle and even he can't move this. The holes left behind are very minimal and do not disturb a lawn.

Rated 5 out of 5 by MaxandTyGrandmom It works!
This is the second tie down that I have bought from LLBean! i love it so much , I bought this one is for my son's house. It is easy to use, install and best of all, it works. tHe only problem I see is that is does not come with a chain or rope, so you have to purchase that at a local store. So be prepared to do that.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Shorthair Dog Tie Out
This is a great product in that it holds firm, even with a STRONG dog pulling on it. However, the first one I had broke at one of the hinge points on one of the three legs. However, even with a leg on the tie down broken, it held the dog firmly and safely. L.L. Bean, of course, replaced the tie-down for just the cost of shipping. I'm now using the new one and still like it. The one that broke, by the way, had been used over 75 times before it broke.

We are campers and have been using this all summer as we travel around. It has been well tested for strength by our 140 and 110 pound Newfoundlands and an 80 pound Berner. Yes all at the same time, they took off to 'greet' someone and as we cringed it held up perfectly, didn't budge. We are not constantly tripping over it, because of its' low profile. The dogs don't get too tied up in it but you still do have to untangle the ropes if you have more than one dog. But our dogs love the freedom they have in our campsites with this great gizmo.

Rated 2 out of 5 by DCKline Didn't expect this to happen.
We are impressed with the simplicity of this tie-down, and the ease with which it can be set in the ground and moved to another spot when needed. What we didn't expect was that our 60 lb. border collie could exert enough force when chasing a squirrel to snap-off one of the three "wings" right where it is attached to the center of the tie-down. The metal stakes held, but the aluminum frame failed.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Mokumanu Pet Tie-Down
Bought this tie-down 2 months ago and seemed to work fine.
My 5 month old golden retriever ran towards me (weighs 35lbs.) and snapped one of the posts near the center of the tie-down.

Rated 5 out of 5 by justjanet Love It!
Great find LL Bean. I bought this and the recommended rope to go with it. The rope was way to long and only had a clip on one end. However, a regular leash worked fine for my 80 lb lab. Great for camping and easy to set up.

Rated 5 out of 5 by HALFMAINER Great tool
In New York, our dogs have a large fenced yard to run around in so when we visit our place in Maine, we do not have that luxury. Needless to say at this point we do depend on tie outs because our city dogs love to chase the wildlife and I do not want to test them and hope if they got loose they would come home. Our 90+ lb dogs would pull the old style metal stakes out of the ground rather easily so we opted to try this based on the reviews. I was surprised to read that some dogs pulled this out of the ground because ours performed as stated but we also made sure it was not placed in soft soil. They realized quickly to stop their forward motion when they felt tension in reaching end of line. In addition, love that the line would not wrap around and get tangled. I think it is a great tool, made well and definitely serves its purpose.

by K9RescuePack Holds even a 200 pound dog safely
This Pet Tie Down Item #:TA260832 works amazing even our rescued 200 pound St Bernard can't budget this beast of a tie down. The design and angle of the stakes makes it so strong and sturdy I do not recommend you purchase the Check Cord that is suggested as a companion purchase unless your dog is under 40 pounds. We will be getting at least one more of these in the near future!
