Containment

Not sure where the best place to put this question is but I have a problem. I bought pens for my pitbulls which worked great, until tonight... A cat came by and my oldest dog bent the pen with ease just to get out. How are you all containing your dogs outside? What can hold them?? I have 3 that I like to leave outside so they can play since I work so long but I don't want to worry about them getting out and running off. And I don't have a big budget, I'll save of course if I need to but id like a good solution as quick as I can.

Chain spots are the best method in my opinion. With the proper set up they have more room to roam and can't escape. I'm fairly certain they are cheaper then outdoor kennels.
Put chain spot in the search bar and it should pop up some posts from older members who use them.

I agree, chain spots are your best option short of building a fence. Just keep in mind that without a secondary method of containment, chain spots will keep your dogs in but will not keep people/animals out, so you could run into some issues there.

Just a note: please do not leave your dogs unsupervised together. They should be separated if you are not home.

Thanks guys, I really wasn't sure about putting a chain out, I just felt like they would be happier without a chain hooked to them even if it is more room, and if people show up and see a pitbull on a chain that it may give the common but wrong idea that he needs to be in a chain because he's some vicious dog that needs to be on a chain for people's safety instead of just that he's that strong and will get out if he really wants to. But if that's the best option I will. I do keep them separated but is there any reason for it? Besides the slight minute chance they could get in a fight?

If your dogs are truly APBT's, which is the only pitbull, you have to remember or do some reading on what these dogs were bred for. That is why you don't ever want to leave them together without being supervised and a break stick at hand.

It may seem slight and minute but it's a very real thing. And if it happens and you aren't there to separate them. Then you may only have one dog when you get home, and/or an astronomical vet bill.

Yeah there's no doubt they are, and I know that's what they were bred for Its just crazy to think they can do so well together for so long then just all the sudden kill each other one day for some reason. But as I said I do keep them seperate to give them their own space so I shouldn't have that problem when I'm not here.

PLEASE, do some reading and research on APBT's. If you think it crazy that
"they can do so well together for so long then just all the sudden kill each other one day", you really do need to learn about the breed ASAP.

I'm sorry I did quite a bit of research before getting mine, because I knew there was a lot to know about them because of what their breed was bred and used for. I seen a lot has to do with how you raise them and treat them. So from what research I did, and I promise you I did a lot, I seen a lot of how they act, their temperament, aggression, is brought out or contained to by how you raise them and treat them. My dogs have played as rough as could be and never out of aggression and it never turned into so. I know it's a possibility, but I see the possibility being greater or lesser by the owner. And how responsible he is and how he raises them and treats them. I completely understand your saying what you have, no I'm not as experienced as most and i won't claim to be, but I have done my best to do my research and make sure I do keep them seperate but it's not out of as much worry as it is just being responsible because it's better to be safe even though I have no signs that they would do so from running outside and playing together while I am home.

Unfortunately proper socialization and training, though important, do nothing to prevent dog aggression. It is a genetic trait that can't be overridden by upbringing. A common misconception is "it's all how you raise them" but that just isn't the case.
