Not sure what it's called but it's a spike with a screw that you attach a length of cable to so the dog is tethered but can run around. I was thinking of getting one for my 20kg staffy but he not only pulls strongly but has a tendency to run to the end of the lead til it pulls him up short. Can anyone tell me if these ground spike things are any good, or do staffies just pull them out of the ground?

I have thought of them before myself but I can't help but think my fella would pull them up.

We had one for Ella in France, it held very well (depends on how firm the ground is), it should come with a shock absorber to dampen any lunge. the only problem is you have to keep an eye out all of the time as Ella had a tendency to get tangled up in it, we stopped using it because of ella getting tied in knots and it seemed to upset her and she used to just sit there feeling sorry for herself lol

LOL! I can see Jasper getting tangled up too. I don't mind untangling him, it's him not getting out of the garden that is my main concern. I didn't know they came with shock absorbers, I will keep an eye out for one, thanks.
