retractable leash is a must have, but my very small dog was unable to move a pulley but had no trouble with this

I made something like this before but with a pulley instead. Depending on your pulley this may or may not be better, but what I found to work really well was to put one of those retractable leashes on so that the dog was never getting tangled in the line. I had it set so that he could lie under the cable with a little slack in the line but when standing it would never hang and tangle the legs.
