Fencing in my yard is not feasible here at my little rental cabin, so I was looking at someone's suggestion of using a trolley. I am assuming the cable should not be much taller than the dog, to prevent tangling. Any thoughts on what kind of hardware to use? We had a trolley of some kind years ago for our very energetic English Setter, and we used airline cable - he broke everything else. I will have to string it between trees here, and of course never allow him to be fastened there unless I am right here! I think I will get a 30-50 foot line and use that when I take him to the local park to play ball or frisbee. My idea of a dog run was certainly not adequate. Thanks! Of course, I am concerned about entanglement. Ugh. What would be a minimum width and length of dog run recommended for one shepherd? This would only be used for short periods of time to allow my dog some run time. My problem is, we have always had a fenced yard in the padt, although the dogs never seemed to use the yard much; they always went out in the yard, pooped, peed, then laid on the deck!
