The Lixit Retractable Cable Dog Tie Out is an in-ground tie-out system that gives pets the freedom to roam. A steel stake keeps it securely planted in the ground, and the retractable cable attaches to the collar with a durable steel spring clip. The top rotates 360 degrees to give pups a large roaming area without getting all tangled up in the cable.
360-degree rotation avoids tangles and gives your dog the most freedom
Heavy-duty steel stake stays buried in the ground
Sturdy, steel-coated cable in steel housing stays firmly in place, retracts when not in use
Provides a large roaming area for your pup
Colorful stripe keeps top visible and prevents tripping
It is always best to use a harness with your tie out. Some dogs do not like the constant “tug” at the neck; a harness always provides more control and comfort for your dog.
The “T” is provided to enable you to drive the stake into the ground without striking the unit directly, use caution when striking, if you lose this piece you can use a piece of wood over the nut to hammer into the ground. Do not remove the acorn nut from the housing and strike the pole directly. Do not strike the housing directly.
After firmly pushing/hammering the stake into the ground, up to the white line just below the housing you may attach your dog. It is best to walk your dog out to the length of the tie out so he has an idea of how far they can go.
A Tie out is meant to be a temporary control for your pet and should not be used for extended periods of time. Always supervise your dog while tethered.
Do not release the cable tie out when fully or partially extended, this could cause the cable
I bought the size for small dogs. Worked for my 11 pound Yorkie, not not my 5 1/2 lb Yorkie. It was too hard for him to pull the cable out of the unit. Also, the clip used to attach to their collar was huge! Need a smaller design. We’ll use this for our larger dog as it’s portable and a great way to keep him untangled. I would recommend but not for a dog under 10 pounds.
Medium to larger dogs

This is definitely a Great product but not for me. I got the medium because of the price, it was cheaper then the small, now I wasted money. I have 3 pomeranians weighting 7 to 10 lbs this is way to strong for them, it's sucks them back to device. It's definitely a great product just not for Small breeds
Dog cable tie out
on Apr 27, 2021
This is a heavy duty and well built. We wanted it for camping. We put it in the ground and attached it to Toby ( He’s 70lbs.). The dog ran once and it stopped him in he’s tracks. He’s fine with it and knows his boundaries.
Great idea, bad execution
on Mar 20, 2021
Bought 2 of the small. Clearly whoever designed this product only owned medium to large dogs and did not consult with small dog owners. This item is not suitable for dogs 20lb or under. The swivel hook is for a dog well over 30lbs and noway will my 8 pound doxi be able to pull out the cording.
Retractable tie out

We purchased this tie out to take our dog camping. We love it because we don't trip over it.
Too much for a 17 pound dog
on Jan 5, 2021
This retractable dog tie is really strong and well made but it’s definitely too much for our dog. She gets pulled back to the unit and is stuck there.
lasted 2.5 years! need to buy another
on Sep 29, 2020
We use these 5-6 times a year when we go camping & take our dogs. They’ve always worked well for us. We are hard on them. Just busted one this past weekend, will be purchasing another.

We got this for our two big dogs to go camping and it pulls so hard coming out of the retracting piece both of our dogs just stood there and one is a lab and other is a german shepard/Belgian mix so they aren't sensitive. Not happy with it.

The retractable dog cable is a great way to have your dog with you outside in an unfenced area and not have to be constantly chasing them to return. We have a new puppy and this has been awesome for us as she hasn’t learned all the commands yet. We can bring her out, hook her up anywhere since it is easily installed or removed from the ground so we can work in the yard. Or just take her out and let her roam. The cable is about 20 ft long so that’s a pretty good area of movement. And she can’t get tangled up in it. Only thing to consider is that the cable tension is pretty high so a very little dog would have difficulty pulling it out to move around. Our puppy is 12 lbs and is ableThe retractable dog cable is a great way to have your dog with you outside in an unfenced area and not have to be constantly chasing them to return.

There doesn’t appear to be a tension adjustment on it but it may relax after repeated use. This has been a great purchase and I recommend it.… more
Did not last long
on Jun 14, 2020
We bought this in mid-april, due to delayed shipping plus us not putting it out right away, we probably started using it approximately one month ago and our pup only uses it maybe twice a day on nice days, for 30 minutes to one hour each. The hook is completely rusted and broke off.
