Has anyone ever bought and used a Dog Tie out? The kind with a thick cable and 2 pulley wheels on the top and bottom of the cable? You mount it between 2 heavy trees. I have a med large black lab mix that I currently have to walk, and Im not willing to fence our back yard. We have several acres of wooded property and a fence will ruin the look of the place. If you have one do they work well? Is the dog happy to run however long it is back and forth? Do it fall off the cable and the dog run away? Thanks for your time ladys.

I use one and got it specifically for a large breed. I use it mainly for him to go out to do his business but I do regularly keep an eye on him while on it. No mishaps yet with this newer trolley system but I did read from reviews that the bolt pops out of the wheel that sits on the cord. I took the wheel off my old trolley so that I wouldn't run into that problem. My dog's predecessor used a trolley as well and only had a few issues with the clip that goes on the actual collar not closing properly. I do like the freedom it gives him to sniff around but do make sure that where you install it to place it far enough away from any obstacles that your pet could otherwise hang itself on like other fences, etc.
