The Double Dog Run is without a doubt more expensive than any other dog tie out system on the market.  However, it is the only tangle-free tie out for two dogs that is secure and portable.  Ensuring your dog is safe and secure when outside could be as easy as getting a fence!  However, there are many who cannot afford a fence, nor have permission to build one.  Once the fence is built, there is maintenance that will need to be done; as well as making sure your dog does not jump over or dig under the fence.  Additionally, dog owners can also opt for an electric fence which also requires training your dog, maintenance and the shock factor. Lastly, there are many other tie out options, but none that offer what the Double Dog Run can.  
To make things easy, we took the time and research to create some tables that will allow you to compare the options.

The Double Dog Run tie outs are the strongest around.  Different from a double dog leash, this system goes into the ground.  Each spiral tie out stake is made of cold, rolled steel for durability and strength.  There are two lengths to choose from: 10 in or 16in.  The tie out stake alone is strong enough to take on some of the toughest pulls, however, we added an all weather, ABS base plate to create and even more solid tie out system that is incomparable to any other system there is.  

Not only do we supply you with a strong tie out stake and base plate, but we also supply the best quality tie out cables we could find.  Our small to medium sized dog runs come with a standard clip tie out cable that holds up to 60 lbs.  The tie out cable features a swivel on each end as well. 

Our large and extra large tie out cables feature cattle clasp and can hold a dog weighing 125 lbs. to 250 lbs.

Now add the spiral dog tie out stake; the base plate for stability and added strength; and the tie out cables..... well you have not experience a tie out with this much strength ever before. 

The weight limits for the tie out systems are as follows:

Small / Medium Sized Dogs

Large / X-Large Sized Dogs

The Double Dog Run is the strongest and toughest dog tie out around.  The top selling products are for the Large Dog Tie Outs and the XL Dog Tie Outs.  Large breed and strong breeds are welcome to try our tangle-free dog tie outs!  

The two dog tie outs were tested at a pull force of 800 lbs.  We suggest keeping the weight limit on the XL dog tie out to 500 lbs of dog weight on the Double Dog Run, however there is a 300 lb buffer there for the comfort of dogs on the tie out.

Not only is the tie out stake and base plate system designed for stability and security, but our dog leashes / dog tie out cables are as well.  Our heavy duty tie out cables Vinyl coated for outdoor use and easy transitions between the two dogs on the tie out.  The tie out cables have a cattle clasp on the end of them for extra security.  

Portability & Convenience

The Double Dog Run tie out systems are easily installed and uninstalled in minutes.  This portable tie out system can go anywhere you go with you dogs.  Take this tie out to a friends house for a play date, camping, hunting, road trips.... or simply use it at home.  We took our dogs down to the creek and let them play in the shallow water without worrying they would run off after a random animal.  We installed the tie out in a sturdy spot next to the creek and let them play!  They had fun and we relaxed.

Did we mention how convenient the tie out systems are? 

There is no more single point of reference for your tie out which means that you and your dogs are free to run in any direction, at anytime in 360 degrees of movement.  In addition, we provide you with 20 foot tie out cables, giving your dog 40 feet in diameter to run, play wrestle, roll or do whatever they want. 

In addition, we offer the tie out system without cables as well. Why? because our tie out system allows you to use any length of tie out cable for your personal setup.  For camping, we recommend getting 10 foot tie out cables since many camp sites do not give much room for running.  For those of you that have large yards and want the dogs to run as far as they wish.  We have had customers put 50 foot tie out cables on the run- giving the dogs 100 feet in diameter to run.  That's a ton of play area!!

Yes, it works in snow.  And yes you can leave it in the ground when you are mowing. Simply remove the leashes and run the mower over the base plate portion (not the topper).  The base plate is low enough to the ground that most lawnmowers can go right over it without a scratch.  We designed the Double Dog Run for everyone- not just your dogs!

Also, the tie out can be set up away from the home so that you can enjoy peace and quit.  When you are ready for the dogs to come in (dependent on your home set up), you can install the run so that the dog's tie out cable just reaches the door.  Which brings us to the non-tangle portion...

Lastly, the price of our dog tie outs are much better than paying for a fence or an invisible fence.  Or, perhaps you live in a community where that type of fencing is prohibited. This is where we come in.  You will not find a better tie out that will withstand the pulls, the tangles, the weather and much more.  We have worked hard to provide a quality product that will last year round regardless of the climate. 

Yes, it is portable! Watch How to Install the Double Dog Run System

#1 Question of the summer...
Can you cut the grass without removing the entire tie out system?  
The answer is yes!

Our dog tie outs are designed with a slim base plate that is low enough to the ground to ride right over.  There is no need to uninstall the dog tie out completely when mowing the yard.  Remove the leashes / tie out cables from the Double Dog Run using the quick link between the two swivels that connect to the ground anchor.  Next, simply ensure the blades ride over the base place and not the topper of the dog tie out.  
We made our dog tie outs tangle-free and convenient!


You will not find another dog tie out system like this one!  Ours is designed to not only hold the strong and powerful pulls from any dog, but also does not get tangled!  Whether you have one dog or two, the Double Dog Run will not disappoint in its performance.

The Double Dog Run is equipped with a double swivel system at the base, in addition to the swivel points on both ends of the tie out cable.  That makes it a four point swivel system for the single dog tie outs and a 6 point swivel system for the two dog tie out systems.  The swivels allow for constant spinning, turning, changing direction and twisting of the cables.  With that many swivels we figured out that the more spinning points or rotating points on the dog run, the more tangle-free the tie out is.  It is simple science, really!

In addition to the swivels on the tie out stake and on the tie out cables, we added a tangle-free topper.  It basically looks like an upside down bowl.  This topper was put in place to keep the first foot of tie out cable off the ground and keep it from wrapping under the base plate.  The angle of cable from the tangle-free topper to the ground is just the right amount to keep the cables from tangling around the base. 

Even the roughest and toughest dogs have played on our tangle-free tie out system without tangling!  As we said the Double Dog Run tie out systems are the best quality and most convenient tie out stake and tie out cable system in the market. 

Two dogs. Two Leashes. No Tangles.

What is the difference between the Double Dog Run and a Double Dog Leash / Dual Dog Leash?

A double dog leash or dual dog leash is a leash you walk your dogs with.  This system is not used for walking dogs along the road.  The term leash is used loosely in the pet industry and we want to be sure to decipher the difference between the two.  The Double Dog Run installs into the ground and is a set up for either permanently or temporarily restraining pets at your home; while camping; and going outdoors when you want to take your dogs with you.  A double dog leash, is tangle-free and as should be but cannot be tied to a tree and give enough running room for the dogs.  What also makes the Double Dog Run different is that a double dog leash / dual dog leash has one swivel that allows the dogs to cross paths horizontally when moving in one direction.  The dog run we have created, allows the dogs to not only cross horizontally in one direction, but we added an additional swivel to allow the dogs to cross their leashes in multiple directions at multiple paces without getting their leashes or tie out cables all tangled up.
