Ok can someone please explain to me what's with everyone wanting these huge friggen chains for pit bulls ? I swear at least twice a week I have somone come in wanting some 7/0 (3/8ths )or higher size chain for a dog. I usually ask what kinda dog they have and 9/10 times it's some kinda pit bull. Usually the story goes Yeah he keeps breaking the CHAIN not the collar or what ever the actual chain. I honestly cannot see this with decent American chain. I have a buddy who raises dogs and I put together some chains for his pits. All it was was some good #3 American a few swivels and that's it. His where completely puppies though,sweetest critters out there. Never had one break those. Idk I know pits are strong and all but what the heck ? I think their just buying crappy chain then just thinking they need to get the biggest most expensive thing with it fails.

The chain is more useful than the pitbull IMHO

There is a good probability that the dogs are kept in close proximity so they can “fire” on one another. The repetitive hitting the end of the chain over time eventually finds the weak link. The weighted chain also “works” the dog, building muscle and stamina.

I'm just saying a pit in the end up a chain it's whole life is just as useful a red heeler sitting on the couch soaking up the AC.

Honestly I'm staring to see that pits are just status symbols to alot of people. I've been told many time a real _ should have a pit bull in the yard along with various other things I find idiotic

Yeah had a buddy long ago that used the heavy chain to build muscles in his pit. I'd guess that's what they are doing but it seems cruel so they make up a (This word is unacceptable on Trapperman)-a-meme story about the dog breaking other chains cause they know it's wrong.

I had a Staffordshire terrier years ago and he was protective when told to be but very gentle around kids. Training is key with any living thing and most important for large dogs and kids.


Life sure is tough when you don't learn from the mistakes of others.

Working the dog to build size and stamina. Down side to that is the chain being drug through the dirt wears it down. I had a Rott that would wear a chain out like that in a year or so. I had her staked out using a 1" rerod 36" long. By the time the chain was ready to break the stake was loose again. Neighbors cats used to torment her sitting right outside her reach. Once a year she would get her revenge.

A dog should not be on any chain! wink
If you feel the need for it, get a different breed od dog.
Other then people having Pitts for a specific (purpose)
There is ZERO reason to have one!!

Disagree and I would appreciate you minding your own business and keeping your opinions to yourself.

How folks keep their livestock is their business.

When I ran hounds every young dog got put on the chain, cable actually, to learn not to pull. Nothing more dangerous than an idiot dog yanking on a lead while in the woods at night with loaded weapons. Some of those hounds were climbers and not all of my runs had tops.

BTW, I'm not a pit fan myself or any of the bully type breeds but again it's none of my business.

Not sure about now but back in the 80's the Gurriers (street gang members) in Dublin all had rottweilers and like type dogs for use in streetfighting and enforcement.
Quite useful.

There was a person from down south who owned pit bulls for many years. He said they are the best breed for hunting wild hogs. But, should never be trusted around children.


Perhaps they should deal with rap music lyrics before they attack Dr. Seuss books.

some cousins had a husky it was always chained to the garage it had run of the driveway and could go in the garage while they were not home

it would break 2-3 chains a year drag a chain back and forth enough on the concrete and it wears out a few links , then one day it breaks.

had they been paying attention to the chain every few days even and when it was showing wear replace it , but that isn't really how that works feed it every day , pick up the poop once a week maybe.

When we ran bulldogs as catch dogs on hogs we kept them on heavy chain for one to build their muscles but also as stated above dragging the chain through the sand wears it down faster than you would think especially with an active dog and the thing about catch dogs is, they usually aren't picky about what they catch, if the bay dogs are baying it they are going to catch it whether it's a 2,000 pound bull of a armadillo or a hog. So you really don't want a dog like that running around of his own free will. When we used them to catch they always stayed on the leash until we could see for certain that a hog was what was being Bayed. Treated them just like a loaded gun, don't point them and turn them lose on something you can't see and know 100% is right. Knew a guy in southwest Oklahoma that turned his catch dogs loose as soon as he heard the dogs bay, until he caught a Llama one night.

Even crappy grade 30 chain has a working limit of 2600 lbs.

They aren't breaking it.

sure , but lay down 4 feet of it as a safety chain on your trailer and go for a drive , measure it at 25 , 50 , 100 miles how many miles of dragging before it is getting thin

how long before it has a working limit closer to 200 pounds

that dog has all day every day to pace back and forth it might be getting drug 50 feet back and forth 10 hours a day that dog may put on 5-6 miles of pacing in the day 3 months and your around 500 miles of dragging
how much of those few links of chain is left after it drags 500 miles

This is as bad as the weed thread lol. Don’t hate the dog hate the owner.
PS bully breeds love to pull and are happy doing it. Some are competitive. I’ve had several. That said they pull from a harness. My biggest “rosco pico” weighed in at 128lbs. And was one of the best dogs I’ve had. He was literally on my right and ready for command.
Look up “big country” Carolina bully farms. Great dogs.
