Questions & Answers

12 Customer Questions

Does it come with a cable? If so, what it the length?
Answer by ChewyOct 20, 2022
This tie out includes a retractable cable. The length for each size may be located by clicking the “Size” tab on the product page.

Can I put this is the ground and then easily be able to remove it to put it in another spot, like can it be portable or is it more once it's in the ground it's hard to get out.
Answer by ChewyMar 20, 2019
This heavy-duty steel stake stays buried in the ground so it may be difficult to move around.

what about snow. Will it freeze and not work, since it's in the ground?
Answer by ChewyNov 27, 2020
The retractable mechanism can be damaged from freezing, especially if water is in the housing.

Can the piece that sits above the ground withstand a large dog chewing on it? My dog tries to eat everything in sight.
Answer by ChewyJan 28, 2019
This Tie Out is not recommended for dogs who are powerful chewers.

Great Concept-Bad Product

The concept of the product is great. I actually have purchased many of them. This should lead one to assume why I would purchase so many of them as I only have one dog. I have purchased so many because they KEEP BREAKING! I have always purchased the large size, and my Dutch/Mal is not even close to the weight maximum. The metal bands/springs they are made with continually break. If the spring/band does not break then the cable will kink and break. If Lixit would strengthen the springs/bands and their cables they would have an awesome product. Unfortunately, they only last about a month with a 65-pound energetic dog.

It works in theory

The tie out is easy to install and seems to work well, however the tension is a bit too strong. I got the medium which is what was recommended for my dog's size and weight, but it pulls her back when tethered. She doesn't like it. If the tension were adjustable or just enough to bring it back to the station, it would be a 5 star.

Rusted fairly quickly

We purchased this retractable tie out and it rusted and you can barely even open the clasp

Not good for small and toy breeds

We purchased the small version of this retractable tie out for my 10 pound Pomeranian. When I clip it on her she can’t sit up straight because the retractable leash is trying to pull her into its base. She’s bigger than a toy sized dog so I’m not sure how this is supposed to work for tiny Chihuahuas or Yorkies because it certainly doesn’t work for my 10 pound Pomeranian.

TO MUCH for a small dog

If you are planning to get the cable please make sure your dog is not to small to pull the cable out because my dog was. she weighs around 5 to 7 lbs and was unable to pull the cable without the cable snatching her back

Pass on this product

I have a 33 lb Australian Bernedoodle and I don't this. I saw negative reviews and I figured oh people are just picky but now I agree with them. I very rarely had to use this and when I did I had to stand right next to it for multiple reasons. 1. He was getting constantly tangled up (around neck and legs) from it pulling to retract while he was just standing there. 2. He was able to easily pull it out of the ground, which then sends it FLYING at him to retract. So he's scared as ever from the flying stake but then me running to make sure he doesn't get away. 3. Retracting mechanism feels as if it's starting to fail already. Really disappointed by the product.

Good and bad

Great product works as advertised but the retractable portion is a bit too strong even for my 90lb Bernese who loves to pull. He’s not a big fan of how strong the pull is so I would have gone with a medium sized one if I’d buy again.

Dog tie out

This model is great. No more wording if your dog is going to get himself wound around the chain. This has a retractable cable. Heavy duty strength is worth the price.

Great Idea but delivery not so much!!!

I bought the first one and within 3 months it quit working. Chewy sent me a replacement ( because they’re awesome) and this one lasted 8 months (I’m late writing my review .) That’s better but way to expensive to only last between 3-8 months! I wish they would improve this product bc its a great concept!
