All dog proof, I plan on glueing a cap on the other end and running a wire from that so I an stake it. I tried out the first one I made and got my finger stuck, hurt like crap. It took me forever to get it out and 30 min later my finger still hurts, so it should work.

I want to see one caught in it

If I put my wife in a high fence will her rack get bigger?

Wow, that's so simple I want to slap myself for not thinking of it! Lol not sure I would have told everyone I got my finger stuck but I see why you did. Let us know how it works.

x2 on the size of the pipe...
