I am trying to purchase (not sure the name) the set up where a cable goes bw two trees, with a stopper on each end, to prevent the smaller cable thats on the dog attatched to the long cable stopping the dog from getting tangled around the tree.

Any advice is much appreciated on how to buy this set up.

kind of like a tie out/dog run

Cheaper and better quality to buy components for a ‘cable run’ separately at a big box store like Lowe’s or homedepot than buying them specifically in a kit geared toward the application. All you need is the legnth of cable and gauge you feel apportioned for the dog. Two crips one for each end at the trees. And a pulley to run on the cable size you buy. I have attached a chain on a swivels to the pulley that is long enough for them to run and get in house and put a crip far enough from the trees so the chain will

Buy four crimps. Use one in each end for cable to cable around tree. Get it good and tight with four wheeler or come along. And use the other two crimps to stop pulley at desired distance from tree dependent on liter chain legnth

You can also put a legnth of chain tight around each tree and attach a turn buckle to each chain and crip your cable around the toe ends of turnbuckles and tighten those up and use crimp on each end to stop pulley at desired distance on each end as a pulley stop.

Semmes the chain and turn buckle is what I did and I like it. Lock tight is good to use too. It will keep your turn buckles from backing off.

I had a couple overhead cable runs years ago until I had to go out in the dark one night and the dog come running and snapped that chain upside my head and knocked my glasses off and had me seeing stars. I tore them suckers out.

What WOW said about the head high runner is true lol. I built 2 that are about mid thigh to waste high. I really like them. They are high enough that the chains don't drag and mound up all the dirt down the center of the run and low enough that I can step over them and mow under them.
