Lots of people use the runs oyu can buy from petsmart and such, they work fine. You can get them for about 300 bucks, but they only best for smaller breeds sheltie size. But if you are just leaving your dog out all day then you should not bother to get another one.
You should save your money and invest in a kennel or fencing before getting another dog. It is cruel to keep a dog chained up in the yard all the time. Dogs are social animals and need the human contact.
You can also invest in the invisible fencing. Menards sells it or check your local animal supply store.
Also, think about why the dog would be breaking his chain...perhaps boredom? Lack of stimulation? Anxiety? Try to solve those problems first and then think about another pet.
i know exactly wat you mean !! im am trying to save money up so i can afford a fence my parents are the same way i want to get a chain link fence (cheaper) but..my parents say they want a privacy fence (the really expensive ones) even though i know they will never actually get one of those....i finally got a savings account and ill buy a fence and buy a dog and they cant stop me .....i ve been wanting a dog since i was 6 .......and ive always wanted to be a vet......so i think you should get a savings account and get sum summer jobs but until summer you can do other things i clean for my grandma.....but you gotta be patient (which is something im not)
