Absolutely get one - We aren't fenced in (yet) so it has been a lifesaver I think it was around $15 at petsmart - maybe a little more? They are in the same isle as the leashes.jamesandkristin said:Ohh! Sandy Doodle has a thing in one of her pictures that looks like a traingular stake twisted into the ground attached to a rope. I need to get one of these for my chihuahua (she can squeeze out of the fence pretty easily at the gate). Does this work well? And is it something I could find at a local pet store?
