If memory serves...

Sides: Two 8' treated 4x4's spaced about 5' apart and buried 1' deep with 3-5 bags Quikrete per hole.
Top: One 6' treated 4x4
Supports: 2x4 cut to size for stability (top corners).

It has held up pretty well. We later added some hemp rope wrapped around the post bases to prevent splinter injuries. One of the posts has actually started to split from where the heavy duty screw went into it at the top but it is still holding.

Oh and those pics are from our first attempt at securing the toy, but a carabiner is no good unless you want your dogs breaking teeth...
