Best Stake Out on the market, hands down.
September 9, 2022
I've used a lot of different stake-outs over the last 25 years and absolutely nothing holds up the way the TBI Pro-Style Stake Out does. If you want something that's going to last a long time, it's worth every penny.
  • Made of solid steel that won't bend and is easy to hammer into the ground and pull out. The chain and swivel is solid and durable and will handle large dogs with ease.
  • None

Heavy duty and well built

This is extremely heavy-duty and well built. The chain and clasp are also well built and easy to use. In hard ground, make sure to carry a large hammer to secure.

Exactly what it needs to be!
April 12, 2022
The update of a dual angle cut at the bottom is a great addition to the earlier models I have purchased. Now I can get it to drive straight into the ground. The chain and clasps are quality and will last. I travel/live full time in a trailer with 4 pointing dogs and having a space for them outside and contained is a must.
  • Dual beveled cute stake for easily putting it in the ground.
  • Chain is the length as described and don't bind on them selves
  • wondered about maybe switching from chain to nylon/plastic coated wire.

A better stake out doesn't exist
February 5, 2022
This simple design goes back decades to the guys that wrote the books on training. The chain is perfect length, swivels everywhere it's supposed, and you can pound it into just about anything with your 5lb hammer. Some future civilization, thousands of years from now, will study this stakeout and hopefully determine that this mobile training tool was where dogs got over their anxieties and learned to "sit with themselves," were fed in front of motels, and napped under shade trees. To me, it's just as important as any collar, lead, or launcher.
  • Perfect chain length
  • Indestructible
  • Simple design but with lots of thought
  • Need to remember your hammer

Stake Out review
December 21, 2021
Stake Outs work great for my dogs. I use them hunting, at feeding time, and while traveling.
  • Easy to set up and take down.
  • Need a hammer to install.

Good for 3 dogs
November 10, 2021
I bought it because I have 3 dogs. It’s good for when I use the dogs at camp. I have 2 labs and a German shorthair. I use labs for duck hunting and don’t use the stake outs. But when I take all the dogs upland hunting/camping it’s nice to keep them moving while we are camping. When we travel 12+ hours it’s nice to stake each one to have enough time to use the bathroom while we stop.
  • Works well during trips and camping

Our friends were right

We ordered 4 stake outs and 2 whistles. They came immediately. Only issue one whistle fell out. Contacted them just to let them know but not an expensive item so not worried about a replacement. Nope that’s not how this company does business, they sent a new one. Very pleased with their customer service and the items. Will be using them again in the future. Thank you Earl and Krista Fowls

Tangle free!
May 22, 2021
These things are awesome I bought two to use with my cable gang, turning my 3 dog gang into a five! Shipping was very fast!
  • No tangle, no mess!
  • Not really a con but way longer then I thought! Probably a good thing but a small hammer!
By Brian M.
April 25, 2021
Exactly what you want in a stake out. Strong, easily to pack and easily taken out of the ground. I switched the snaps to beefier ones only bc my lab is a moose. You will need a lump hammer to put it in the ground properly.
  • Rugged, easy to use, easy to pack.
  • Just a little advice. Put blue loctite on the threaded links otherwise they will come undone.

Stake-out with chain.
April 13, 2021
Stake with rotating head works well and is well made. The chain; on the other hand, was junk and I replaced it after the first day. The galvanized coating was so rough that it tore my hand while attaching a young dog. The other hard ware was good quality. They should not have gone with the cheap chain..
  • Mostly good stuff.
  • The chain had to go.

Great Stake!
November 3, 2020
This stake is very versatile because it is long enough to handle a chain gang and has the built in swivel for single dog use. Without the wide head it is easy to store, as well.
  • Versatility, durability (only bought this one as a replacement for a stolen one), and ease of use.

Got two of these for staking dogs out at tests, training days, camping, etc. Already used them more then 12 days (test season is upon us) and I am quite pleased. The stake is great and well designed. The paint is looking rough after (literally) breaking rocks from Kenai to Delta Junction, AK and back but that is to be expected; no fault there. The chain, links and snaps didn't really pan out. There are brass swivel snaps on both ends and it's a rough galvanization on the chain. The second time I had a dog on one (at a NAVHDA test) he came walking up to me 30 minutes later dragging the chain. Clearly whatever horsing around he did un-snapped the brass snap link from the stake. If I was in a different part of the grounds, who knows where he could have ended up. I recommend swapping the stake side swivel snap for the quick link with some blue L.T. I ended up getting stainless quick links, 3 feet of stainless chain and reusing the brass swivel snap on the dog end for a perfect set up for our uses. Super thrilled with the stake-out and recommend 100%!
  • Stake is perfect. Everything you need, nothing you don't.
  • Chain is just ok, and I don't recommend using the swivel snap on the stake-out side of the chain. Easy fix as delivered by simply removing it and using the provided quick link.

Fantastic tool. I have used in the backyard while doing yard work in short burst's to help calm down my wild girl. The next field trial, i'm sure it will be used for a little longer. But she has taken to it just like i hoped she would and seem's to not be bothered by it. Solid piece of equipment too. I see no reason for this thing to need replaced anytime soon.

Works well. I have used it on a couple of hunts to keep dog from breaking. The stake goes into ground easy and pulls up and out easy, but the dog can't pull it out sideways. I may switch to a longer chain, but other than that I am really happy with this product.

The stake out part is great, but the chain is terrible! Already made my own and replaced the cheap chain and snaps. My smallest dog could probably break the clasps in just a few times tied out on it. Not to mention on the chain, the part that links the clasp and the chain unscrewed, and the dog got loose. It was probably my fault as I should have checked them, but still probably a better way to link those parts would make sense.

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 :)

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.

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 vehicle without dirt getting on everything..

July 28, 2011
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 trying 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.

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.

The thumb slide on the chain clasp had a sharp edge and it sliced my thumb open. I ground the rough edges down to remedy the situation. The chain seems a bit short......two more feet would allow the dog a bit more movement.

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.
