It might help to explain what one is. Common vernacular does not often cover the US, much less the rest of the world.

I've been around a bit and am guessing that you are looking for a wagon for your dog.

Like Bob said.

Here it's called a 'cable run'.

The big question is is if it is suitable for a 20 tarrier mix? Especially when she is pregnant? My Mom brought me a pregnant dog to keep here frome the pound.

When you say suitable do you mean strong enough??? Well it depends for one on how you attach to your 2 fixed objects, cable is recommended for the line, a good pulley will hold so all you need is the rope to attach to dog's harness...

And with the pull would that be too much work to drag back and forth on the cable she is inside most of time since we found out she is house broke but i want her to be able to stay outside when we have to leave for the wwhole day or something

No it's not over kill. If you want to go that approch go to a smaller hardware store and find the oldest guy in there and tell him what you want to do and he will set you up with the right stuff. Otherwise just get a rope and tie him to a tree or a stake and let him go around in circles until he can't anymore...

Consider the safety of using a "dog trolley," "cable run." I've heard of dogs actually hanging themselves (not intentionally, I'm sure ) on these things. Rare I would think, but just something to consider, and I can't offer any ideas on how to prevent this.

I would think you would have to dead man back each post to make sure it doesnt sag too much in the middle. Either that or use heavy pipe and ALOT of cement real deep to make them rock solid. Then you will still need a tightning device, season changes will droop the wire. as well as the pull of the dog. Maybe high tensile cattle fence wire would work well with a rachet tightener.I dont know how to attach a proper trolly so the pully does the running. Trial and error I guess. HTH --d--
