Today we're looking at the TBI Pro Style dog stake. These are heavy duty stakes. They are super long. They are set up for one dog. And it's a spinner on it, so you can stake out your one dog and keep him there. I don't use them that way. I prefer to use what's called a chain gang. I use these as the stakes for my chains. They go into the ground really deep. You can angle them in. they'll fit on a ring or you can attach to the clip. Heavy duty. They are going to last for years. We've been using them for a long time. It's just a really nice stake.
Owns 2 dogs. Hunts. Family pet. Competes. I bought this stake from GDS, and it is excellent. I have 2 big labs 95# and 88#, and with this stake, I can keep both staked at the same time if I want. It is heavy duty and will last a lifetime. You need a small mallet to drive it in the ground, but it stays put until I pull it out. Its great for airing my dogs at hunt tests instead of crating them when its really hot outside. Another great item from GDS.

"Purchased for our annual Maine hunting trip, but gets used regularly around the yard."
brittany. Hunts. Family pet. I purchased the tie-out stake for our annual Maine hunting trip, but gets used regularly around the yard. The stake out is top notch. No rust and the coating hasn't chipped or pealed. I would definitely recommend this product to a friend, which I did and his is holding up just as well.

"Built well, very sturdy and strong for that hard ground"
Hunts. Family pet. My dog is just a pup, so I swapped out the heavy chain for a smaller cord, but it works great. I'd second the comment from another reviewer about this coming with some kind of cloth case. Also, there was a metal bur on the thing somewhere that cut me the first time I handled it... Never did find it, but I haven't been cut again, so maybe it wore down. May want to use gloves the first time you pick yours up :)

"A must have as a trainer! I use two as a set up for a chain gang, and it holds up very well."
Owns 3 dogs. Competes. Excellent piece of equipment. A must have as a trainer! I use two as a set up for a chain gang, and it holds up very well. I'm very satisfied with my purchase of TBI stake out tie out.

"It is much better than anything I found in brick and mortar stores."
Vizsla. Owns 2 dogs. Hunts. Family pet. In general I like the TBI Tie out Stake. It has a good length so that you can drive it deeper into soft ground if you need to. I like the fact that the metal loop that the chain is tied to is small so if you are a klutz like me and miss the stake you are less likely to damage the loop by hitting it. If you are tying out only one or two dogs this is a good choice. If you have more dogs I would use a stake out chain (if there is room). My only complaint is that the brass snaps supplied with the stake are too weak and my knucklehead dog broke them by pulling too hard on the stake. They are easy to replace with stronger snaps. If it wasn't for the snaps i would give it 5 stars. In comparison to the LCS long tie out stake, I think the LCS stake is stronger and but it has a large loop that is easier to hit if you miss the stake with your hammer. The LCS stake is priced cheaper and has a little longer chain with stronger snaps so I would give the edge to the LCS stake.

Goldens. Owns 2 dogs. Competes. Use the tie-out all the time - wanted something that was easy to pound into the ground and didn't bend or break. Found the chain sent with the tie out is too short so added my own.

"I actually have two of these stakes and haven't had a problem for two years"
Wirehaired Pointing Griffon. Hunts. Family pet. Works well, chain may be a little short, my dog is never on it for to long anyway. Mine came and looked as though it had been chucked around the warehouse. Scratches and chips all over it. Called was told that is the way they come from the manufacturer. I would rather put my own scratches on it. That's why I gave it 3 stars.

Brittany. Owns 12 dogs. Hunts. Work great but one of the connectors on the stake broke..Also, these stakes should come with a cloth carrying sack with a strap since they are heavy, bulky, and also get covered in dirt..This would allow you to carry across fields easily, keep you clean and allow to carry in a vehichle without dirt getting on everything..
