the best i have ever used or seen was made with rebar. take a 2-3ft piece of 3/4(or whatever size you want) and weld the end link on the chain to the side of the rebar about an inch from the end. drive the rebar into the ground all the way with just chain sticking out. they will never pull it up and there's no tangle. another thing i did was i made all my connections connecting chain-swivel-chain-o ring out of chain links(collar goes thru the o-ring). just cut the link with a hacksaw, open it with a hammer and chisel until it's big enough to fit hardware then use a sledge hammer to close it back. i've chained many dogs in my life and this setup is far better than anything else i've ever used. the links last alot longer than any other connectors. hope this helps somebody.

I had a dog up to my place last summer for a bit that I didn't have room for so i had to tie out and I ended up using a 18" cable stake the kind used for trapping. I connected an 8 foot chain to a swivle and connected the swivle to the cable stake. Drove the cable down into the ground till just the swivle was above ground and it's still there now. Cheap too especially if you already have the driver for the cable stakes. about 2 bucks plus the cost of the driver if you need one. I buy them by the dozen for trapping so i always have a few around.

junk ford rear axles.get em cheap for junk ones at a junk yard. when you see one you will see why they work so well.just drive them in the ground point first,hook the chain to the bearing plate and around and around they go with no tangles and even a big dog cant pull them up.

i got a chain hooked to a telephone pole thats in my back yard and my dad put cross ties in the ground for the clothes line their really stable so i got a cable running from that ( and no we dont use it for a clothes line any more.. my mom would kill me.. ha ha :P )

or u could always use a tree clear of other ones so ur dog dont get tangled up, plus if u use a tree ur dog always has shade :)

i got this method from some1 elses post, but its excellent and prob 4 dollars.
i already had cinder blocks, take ya 1, drill a hole in it 4 an eye bolt to fit in, where it can move around, helps to keep chain from talglin, burry flush, pack dirt in tight, i attached a big O ring with an chain link, so the only thing i bought was the O ring and eye bolt, havn had no prob with it. and you only need bout 6 foot of chain if your keeping your dog hunted.

The best way I found, and what I use to hold my 85lb american pit, is to take a 10 foot long chain wrap it around 2 to 3 cinder blocks connect it to itself leaving a long end dig a hole and bury the blocks leaving only the chain end out then get a add a link and a 20ft chain and connect them together it would hold a horse. Dig the hole bout 2ft down and fill the blocks with dirt.

these are the ones I use. I have found no better. before these I used some homemade versions of the same thing without the grabbers. I use a 10 foot chain so the dogs actually have a larger radius than a 10x10 kennel.

I almost forgot you need to put a swivel on the chain you can make the 2nd chain any length I used a 20ft one for a pit so he can get plenty of exercise. Good luck

I made some tie stakes a while back.... 3/4 inch rebar and some pipe with the inside diameter 3/4 inch..... the rebar is bout 4 1/2-5 feet long. i cut the pipe into 3 sections about the same length. put one over the rebar and weld it with the ends flush leave the next one free and weld the third one on. then you weld a quick link to the free spinning pipe attach your chain and drive it into the ground up to the bottom of the middle pipe. as long as there is a swivle on the snap for the collar your dog can go round and round and i made 5 of em out of scrap i had the only thing i bought was the quick links..... by the way make sure you put it where you are gonna leave it cause it aint comin up..... at least i cant get em up and im 6'6" and way bout 275. ill try to put some pictures on here later
