How to Keep an Inground Dog Stake from Coming Out

If you have an inground dog stake, you know how frustrating it can be when it comes out of the ground. Dogs are strong animals and can easily pull the stake out of the ground if it’s not properly secured. In this blog post, we will discuss how to keep your inground dog stake from coming out. We will also provide tips for choosing the right dog stake for your needs.

Dig a hole that is about twice the size of the stake

This will give the stake plenty of room to move around without coming out of the ground. Use a heavy-duty dog stake. These stakes are made of thicker metal and are designed to withstand more weight and force than a standard stake.

Upgrade Your Stake

Not all dog stakes are created equal. If you have a large dog, you will need to use a heavy duty stake that is specifically designed for large dogs, being able to withstand their weight and strength. Otherwise, they will simply pull the stake out of the ground, leaving you with an escape artist on your hands.

Place a layer of gravel at the bottom of the hole

This will help drainage and keep the stake from coming out of the ground. Use a dog tie-out that is designed for inground use. These tie-outs have a plate or ring on the bottom that helps to keep the stake in place.

Insert the stake into the hole and pack down the soil around it

Tamp down the soil around the stake to secure it in place. You can also use a rock or brick to help keep the stake from coming out of the ground. Check the stake regularly to make sure it is still securely in place.

Water well to help secure it in place

If you live in an area with clay soil, it is especially important to water the stake well to help keep it in place. By following these tips, you can help ensure that your inground dog stake stays securely in place. Choose a heavy-duty stake and make sure to dig a hole that is large enough to accommodate it.
