They pulled up the car axle too...Is the ground out there pretty soft? Maybe concrete? You can bury a 5 gal bucket
fill it with concrete
before the concrete sets, put your hardware in
Don't know if it would work but it might be worth a try....

that's my prefered method of staking and i've never seen a dog pull one out (and i've had a few bad chain fighters). are you driving them in, tamping the ground down and letting it set for a few days? i've seen dogs pull them over into a hard lean but with a good swivel you should be firm in the ground.. are you sure nobody's messing with your dogs?

I've always had the best of luck with the orange ones you can pick up from wal-mart but I guess I have the "perfect" ground for em' :/

mike says he has used those axles for like 30 years but he is only 30. Am I missing something here or is he counting in dog years?

Ok maybe this is none of my business but when has that ever stopped me.....Dunlapfan, I am not sure what kind of problem you have with Mike nor do I care....GROW UP. You do not post anything constructive or add to any conversations. You only post when you think you can try and "catch" someone in a lie. If you knew Mike at all, which apparently you don't, you would know that his father and grandfather both raised bulldogs. Do you not think that is maybe how a 30 yr old would have ben doing something for so long? But regardless you're behavior is getting old.

Mike's Dad raised these dogs as well, Dunlap.

To the OP, we use rebar, but if the car axles aren't working for you, then I doubt the rebar will. lol.

I think the cement thing sounds like a good idea.

All I can do is LMAOOOO at this.. seriously? I think we all just assumed he meant his family.. not him personally (although I'm sure I could picture Mike out there in his huggies with the dogs.. lol) And I agree with Tami, your posts are getting old. Do you read through each thread just to bring something bad up about Mike? If this is the case you're not needed on this forum. If you have something constructive to say or some advice.. come with it.
