With a 16" length spiral stake, it should sink into the ground far enough to secure small- and medium-sized dogs up to 50 lbs. Triangle-shaped handle simplifies the installation process. Has an attached ring to simplify connecting the included cable.
Won't secure large dogs, as it's not large enough.
Consists of 100% steel and an 18" length, so it will keep larger dogs secure. Rated to handle dogs up to 150 lbs. Uses a dome-shaped piece at the top that keeps the cable free from tangles. Good price point, even though you have to provide your own tie-out cable.
Must have a hammer or mallet to properly drive the stake.
With a 19" stake height and a 15' cable, it is made to secure small- and medium-sized dogs in the yard. Easy to screw into the ground, thanks to its triangle-shaped handle. Includes a spring that reduces the amount of tension the dog can put on the line.
Not made of the toughest materials, so it won't work with large dogs.
This stake has 28" in length, so it can be driven deeply into the ground. It can handle large animals, even if you're working in really soft ground. Has a bright orange color, so you will always be able to see exactly where it is. Solid steel with powder coating to resist rust.
May be difficult to drive the stake completely in rocky or dry ground.
Bright yellow color will make it easier to see the stake, so you don't trip over it or hit it with a lawnmower. Lengths for the anchor range between 10" and 16", delivering excellent performance. Durable, thick steel construction to handle most sizes of dogs.
Pricier than other tie-out stakes. Hook for the cable is smaller than others.

Tie-out dog stakes allow you to secure the pet outdoors. When you don’t have a fenced-in yard, the tie-out stake can keep the dog secure and give it a little freedom. It’s important to select a stake that can handle the weight and strength of a particular breed of dog. Tie-out dog stakes with a longer length will sink farther in the ground. This allows the stake to have the leverage necessary for a stronger dog without popping out of the ground. Some stakes are spiral, meaning you can screw them into the ground by hand. Others have a straight base, which means you’ll need a mallet or hammer.
