  4. Not sure what others use but here's a pic of my swivel. I don't use it all the time but it is 30 years old and workin. I hope to find a dog this year and put it back to use.

  6. Only reason I had it out was to pull a truck out the worked. It spins fine but I'm not a chance taker with my dogs, I wouldn't use it either. Thanks for the link.

    When you guys bury the axles in the ground, how deep do you bury them??

    Just under the ground so you don't trip over it at night and nothing can get caught up around it.

    Nothing with have you saying a whole new vocabulary like hitting ones shin off a axel sticking out the ground in the middle of the night. Lol..

    Bro heavy duty and and a couple foot of heavy duty chain coming off the axle.Build your chain set up off the heavy duty chain coming out of the ground.This way you can see your smaller chain on top of the ground.You go heavy duty enough under ground and heavy duty chain a couple feet out of the ground then you dont have to worry bout under neath the ground.

    I'm not saying put a heavy ass chain on the dog .Like I said build your set up off the heavy chain with smaller chain.Bigger chain and axle only a anchor.

    I went through this whole thread. Senior Dragon has a phenomenal looking kennel set up. I wish I could see my earlier set ups in this thread. I've changed them many times over the years. Laws force my dogs in kennels these days though I do still have 2 chain set ups.

    Bamaman, i understand, thanks. Only i want curious to know, if axle not rusty fast and maybe brake becauss of active dog jump and run in chains on axle. Lot of power on axle, axle is good material for much years in ground with rain / rusty?

    They were much happier on chains.

    Sorry it's sideways.

  17. I really like your set up. Do any of your dogs eat the pebbles/Stone?

    I was thinking about doing lime stone of pea gravel to level my kennel floors as the drainage sucks but I have heard of dogs eating these.

    Thanks. It's not finished yet but its getting there.
    last part is Having a building built to connect to the kennels so they can have indoor - outdoor kennels. Mostly being done for the winters here. I have never had any of mine eat the limestone here and it's been 3 years now that they've been in the kennels.
  19. I think that the most important for a dog to be happy is the lawn where he is playing, sleeping, chilling. For example, my dog is very active, and he lies to play on the lawn. So that's why I pay a lot of attention to the lawn because I want it to be perfect for my friend. I use only the Best Lawn Fertilizer. It's making the grass grow faster. It's very green and healthy. I'm very pleased with the quality. The price is very accessible and is a very good product on our market. Hope this will also help your dog to feel better.

    I live in S.C. the area where I'm at is sandy ground. So, I did a 4-5 foot hole in the ground wide enough for 1/2 concrete cinder block. Thin I use a 25 or 30 foot logging chain, go through the center of the block, hook it, bury it . Pack it down. This gives my Bulldog's a great quality of life. They can run the circle, right to left ect. I dig my hole dead center making sure my Bulldog's can get in the house, water, shade. I have used quick create concrete at times, However it's not necessary when done right. I buy quality hardware, and collars from O'Brian's, Stillwater, Or at my local feed & seed store , There made by the Amish. Lol . Now a have never had a dead hook let me down. Snap ring reverse are easy to get my hounds off and on, however they will fail.
