Default Operation - DOG RUN!

The time has come! Koda, our watch dog is getting a new throne! 60ft dog run. Now he is 100lb german shepard. Has broken many a chains and collars. He really is in the way of the drive, but I need him able to cover the front of the shed. So, I planted (2) 16ft 4x6. 80lb of concrete in each hole. Built some mounts and bolted them into the top of the posts with 1/2" x 5" Lag bolts. More to come.

The Posts.




The cable. 1/2"x 75' wench cable.


The Posts mounts.




Mount attached to post.


This is just a mock up to see how things are going. The link I bought was to small to fit around the cable end, so I used one of those backpack hooks thingys that was laying around.

We have a blacklab/german sheppard. Stance and size of the German though. When we first got him, from the pound, they warned us he hates other animals..were fine with that because we can train of our of that(Which is working). Anyways, one of the first times we got him my Dad bought a crap load of chain, big thick stuff..tied him to our old railing..notice I said old? Ya! He tore the entire railing off the brick and porch to chase down a dog..Hes now tied up to the cemented in basketball post..

Looks like a good build so far, I'd hate to see what he can do if he pulls that thing down !

ok, I picked up some more for the dog run. The normal cable tighteners looked to small and weak, like for a gate or something. So for a couple dollars more, I pick up a top link for a 3pt on a tractor! This will give me my adjustment for as the cable stretches over time. Also picked up grade 8 bolts to bolt everything together. I figure this is the most economical and strengthy way to do it. Plus, its simple.

meh, I figure it was easier than typing "much more stonger" even tho I just typed that, and am typing this post. So in all reality, I would have been better off to just type it the right way to begin with.

Alright then! Got koda hooked up to the run!. Still have some more tightening of the cable yet, need more man power for this tho!

I pured a slab of concrete about 10" dia. and 3' deep. Put in an eye bolt. Ran a smaller 3/16" cable down to that. The poles are leaning pretty far. These will pull the pole back level.
