- If your dog is nervous or has trouble with new things, you may want to test this at home first to get them used to it. Ours didn't even notice the new cable run the first time we used it.
(1) Only one dog may be tethered to each cable run.
Find two stationary objects to attach a cable between. Choose objects that are far enough apart that the dog has ample room to run (10 feet or more). Make sure the area around the run is clear of obstacles, fences or tree-branches that your dog could tangle or hang himself on. Choose an area that doesn't reach outside of your property line.

If you don't have a fenced-in yard, you probably have to supervise your dog while he goes outside. However, if you have things to do inside, you probably will rush him back inside when he's done doing his business. Let your dog stay outside, while you get things done inside, by putting together a dog run in your front or back yard. A dog run is a long cable clamped between two objects with a leash attached. It gives you and your dog a little more freedom.
Q. Can I run the dog fence cable through a culvert or drainage ditch?
In the first part of this series on how to set up a dog run cable, you learned how to choose a spot, dig your post holes and insert and set your posts in concrete. Now, in the final part of this series, you will learn how to install the cable and finish up the dog run.Attach the turnbuckle to the pulley and attach the lead wire to it. This should be long enough to allow your dog to lie down and roam around in the areas along the run. You need to take note not to make the lead wire too long or else it will tangle later on. Next, attach the tether line to the cable.Insert a steel eye hook into each post (or one post and one tree). Then, thread the steel cable through the opening in the pulley and onto both eye hooks so that it securely hangs between the 2 posts in the dog run. (Note - if you have positioned the 2 posts correctly, the steel cable should sag very little, but should not be too taut.)You can install a dog run cable in your yard to help train your dog. A dog run cable looks similar to a clothesline and allows your dog to run up and down the length of line. This is one of the easiest and best methods for securing your dog if you find it hard to put your dog inside your home or if the dog doesn’t feel like going into its dog house. A dog run cable can help make the dog feel secure, yet at the same time, allow your pet the ability to roam around its place.
