PostSubject: Chaining   Tue 26 Aug 2008, 7:25 pm

Okay, I know alot of AR nuts go off on this one, and I see the point that the SPCA and HS make. But I can't agree with it 100%. I chain, so what! That's my business, if the law defines my dog as my property and I'm not beating , torturing, or starving it I think it's my business and mine alone.
A little info to go along with my post; I chain my dogs in the cooler months, it's hotter than hell in Phoenix. They get a 15 foot tether, a bucket of water, and a three sided shelter with the open side exposing North and the floor of it doesn't touch the ground like the law specifies. I leave the dogs out on chains for a couple hours at a time, I understand what boredom does to a dog, more so the APBT.
My dogs a frggin' smart, and they WILL figure new ways out of the yard even I let them run loose out there alone for more than an hour. They think it's fun to dig out and run to the front door, dunno why. But point is, that chaining is something that has been practiced since the beginning of time, the chains and tethers wouldn't be sold in stores if it was that bad or illegal. Yat it seems to be a conflict, even though I know what I'm doing here, and I get AC or HS showing up at my house every so often and I'm tired of being cooperative. You don't like what you see in my yard.... QUIT LOOKING IN IT!!!!!!!!

I would do car axles and chain if I had a more private yard. Right now I am just TOOO paranoid to risk it.

We use old chainlink posts, I have seen so many reports on suspected dog fighters and they always mention the axels, I honestly don't see a thing wrong with using an axel. I guess if you wear baggy jeans you ARE a criminal, ya know? I hear alot of shit talk about kenneling too, the same as I hear it about chaining. Anyone care to add?

Kennels don't work with this breed, here's why... a determined dog will always get out either by going under, over or through a chain link fence, here's my setups...

There's the man I was waiting to hear from. I've seen Kennels work for some but yeah you're right, kennels aren't pit bull proof

Now, everyone take a look at those chains. Marty has some common sence!
There is no need for chains that look like they come from an anchor of a friggin cargo ship!

PostSubject: Re: Chaining   Tue 26 Aug 2008, 10:08 pm

my chain setups consist of either like the way marty has his or I use a 3ft-5ft long rebar(mine roof bolts), then i put a swivel, then a c clamp, 15-20 ft chain, then another c clamp, swivel, then another clamp to hold the dog on.

Here's some picstures to show they aren't that great but good enough. Now this one doesn't have a double swivel like normal I was one c clamp short to put the other swivel on. An also down where th swivel is I got 2 c clamps b/c the one on the swivel is rusted shut lol.

I've never had a real problem thus far being hubby tightens them sometimes its hard for us to get them back apart b/c he does them so tight but I also have had some get off in the past b/c they were chain poppers but, when i had the ones that would some how get them loose i would switch them to the same kind as you use.

I know some people call the c clamps something different but here you go to the store and thats what it says on the tag C clamp lol. I been told before I was calling them the wrong name.

I have a question for you chaining people. Do you chain them straight from puppy? If yes how heavy a chain should you use on a puppy?

I think I am going to go talk to our AC lady, she's awsome. has a big red pit named 'Red Dog' haha, and see if there are Chaining issues in my county ( I know some places its actually illegal to chain)

I don't never put pups on a chain really others do but i don't I probably wouldn't start them out until about 6 to 8 months old depending on the dogs. Of course before just recently I would always raise my pups in the house until about 8 months to a year old and then take them outside. As far as chain size I'm not really sure b/c like I said I don't chain my pups really i started Jack out on the same chain deuce is on not sure what size it is honestly lol I've had that chain so long it isn't funny.

Where I live,if you chain your dog out thats advertising them for give away.I got a fence in yard but I don't have a issue with a chain IF its done right now a 5 ft. chain to a tree makes me mad.I had to chain my lab/pit mix to prevent him from going over/under fence.I allowed him enough run to hit fence but not hang himself.I used a hammer in spike that open as you pounded it in with a hammer from the tractor supply.It work well not your walmart spike in pull out crap.and it side where you connected your cable/chain has a moveable side to help prevent chain wind up.I hook right to the hook side thing then to dog harness loop

littlecountry just alittle help for you.first get rid of that 'c' clamp thing and that bullsnap. replace the clamp thingy with a lap ring and swivel then attach a lap ring to the other end of the swevel and then an o ring. that way you can put the o ring through the dogs collar and there is no way that dogs coming off. oh yea and you dont need that cable plus the chain.just an axel and chain is enough. but that chain set up is a headache waiting to happen.

I don't chain outside just because I don't trust people and my dogs are spoiled rotten. But, if the dog is fed, exercised, has shelter and plenty of water, I see no problem with it. The sad thing, though, are the dogs that are chained outside and then forgotten.

This is how I feel too.

I don't see any problems with chaining when it's done right. I do chain mine when I'm outside, but wouldn't leave them outside by themselves 'cause there's way too many weirdos around here and a lot of dognapping incidents. Pit bulls get stolen a lot around here.
