What is a dog trolley system?
A dog trolley system, also known as a dog run or tie-out, is a setup that allows a dog to move around within a defined area while remaining safely confined. It typically consists of a cable or wire stretched between two anchor points, such as trees or posts, and a sliding pulley or attachment that connects to the dog's collar or harness. The dog is able to move along the length of the cable, providing them with more freedom than a traditional leash while still keeping them within a specific area. A sturdy cable or wire is the main component of the trolley system. It should be made of durable material, such as steel, and capable of supporting the weight and strength of the dog. The trolley system requires two secure anchor points to which the cable is attached. These anchor points can be trees, posts, or other sturdy structures. The dog's collar or harness is connected to a sliding pulley or attachment that moves along the cable. This allows the dog to move freely within the designated area while preventing them from going beyond the length of the cable. The trolley system includes various hardware, such as carabiners or hooks, to secure the cable to the anchor points and attach the sliding pulley or attachment to the dog's collar or harness.
