My sibe has escaped twice. I have 6ft fencing he's 7 month an an utter nightmare at the moment. Luckily I got him back safely. Tomorrow I'm going to rescue garden fencing and heighten it. In the meantime until this is done I want to put a steak in the garden and secure a lead to it. A long lead hecwill chew through in no time, I'm not sure about a long chain as he might hurt himself. Does anyone have any suggestions with links as to what outdoor lead is suitable. Thanks

Well, since no one else is going to. I have three Huskies and I don't have a fenced yard ("Ohmygod!")
Two of my three are most often on long chains tied to poles off the front porch and other than having to untangle the chains from time to time, they've never had a problem.
The third, the eldest of my pack, normally is in the house (or wherever) with me. When we go out she's on a 30 foot (er, 10m) lead made from sash cord (light cotton rope) and often while we're wandering I can trust her off lead.
So, as a suggestion, a chain isn't out of the realm of possibility. However
look closely if you decide to use a stake, some of them have sharp points and I've seen one dog who impaled himself on the stake ... some have covers that cover the top of the stake and help keep the chain from becoming tangled.
I strongly DO NOT recommend
type of stake and I can't find the one that Chewy had that was exceptional for it's cover, it was similar to the second but had a metal cover over
the top of the stake. Also, be aware that most Huskies can pull these stakes out of the ground!
When I lived over in Houston, I used a mobile home (caravan?) tie down after a friend of mine did a little work on it. It looked something like this - at about a meter long.
Misty was able to bend it, but never was able to pull it up!

Thanks, I don't know why he's escaping it's not through lack of exercise. I live in the country and I suspect its the wildlife. Hes caught a few birds 7 this week and I'm surrounded by pheasants and grouse. He's got out the last two nights. I can't help visits from bambi or thumper but have a 6ft fencing around the demon still got out. I'm going round the full perimeters securing today and finding anyway that's not husky proof I have a very large garden. I will tie him up for extra security. It's a pity but he's spoilt it for himself. I can risk him getting loose as he could make it to the main road or worse still into the local farms livestock.

Take a look at "Coyote Rollers" for the tops of the fence. Essentially, it's a long roller bar that spans the width of the fence panels along the top edge. The dogs can't get a grip on the top edge because it rolls.
There are do-it-yourself options that are similar (and probably other brands) but the one I've seen the most videos of are the Coyote Roller brand.

I use an overhead trolley/runner for one of my guys when we are not around (otherwise, when we're home, he has invisible fence that he respects but I believe these are outlawed in the UK?) The overhead trolley we put up is 100 ft long, has a dog house at one end. My foster cannot be tethered unless we are in the immediate vicinity - he would kill or maim himself. He has absolutely no sense in managing a line and gets himself horribly tangled. Or climbs a tree and would hang himself getting down after he's wrapped the tether who knows where!
