While we all wish we had unlimited hours to spend with our furry best friends, some days are busier than others.
A walk around the neighborhood, or making sure our dog’s get enough active exercise each day, isn’t always possible.
1. K9Compass Tangle Free Dog Tie Out and Two Dog Tie Out
When we tested the system with two dogs it did get a little tangled, but we just left them to see if it would untangle naturally (as advertised). After about 5 minutes the cable tangles worked themselves out and the dogs were fine. We made the mistake of not twisting the stake all the way down and the cable wrapped around it, but that was an easy fix and reminder not to take shortcuts.
The K9 Compass Two Dog Tie Out is our favorite overall chain/tie-out system. It takes about a minute to twist the stake system into the ground, and the angled head does make it a lot easier (also prevents some tangling).
