Most people make them themselves. If your dog is older or not accustomed to the 'pole, start off with it low enough that the can have all four feet on the ground with the lure in their mouth. As they get better with it and fitter, you can raise it if you so desire. A good dog should be able to work a 6 foot spring pole. Great dogs can usually do 7 or 8 foot poles, though few dogs you find these days are great.

Edit: If your dog isn't interested in a springpole or flirtpole, don't try to force the issue. Find something they do enjoy and chalk it up to experience that you have learned something new about your dog.

I recently saw a person post pictures of there dogs on there springpole they used a line of rope across the garden and attached a toy to it thought it was great same principle and costs peanuts. I woulden't buy one for 50 when you can make one for a couple of quid.

My hubby made one for my girls, it is a bracket attached to the shed wall (hanging basket bracket), attached to that is a bungee rope and we just attached their raggy to it. Tia absolutely loves it!

I have heard nothing but negatives about these, a few peoples dogs now have problems with their backs due to landing funny a friend of mine her Stafford has a very bad back and she blames these, so i dont think i'll bother what with Shyna's bad leg

Diglet the dog should have its hind legs on the floor at all times. You see some people let there dog run up and jump 12 foot and hold on then but there irresponsible. Leave it low enough so it just gets its two legs off the floor.

I don't have one, but if I had a garden I would defo get Rocco one. Not sure Dixie would bother with it.

You must make sure your 'leave' command is excellent before letting your dog use one. With any toy, they should leave it when intrsucted.

Thanks Claire,

he really loves it, i cant keep him off it. its great when he's got allot of energy i'll let him go on that for 30 mins and its knackard. :) he took to it really good as well, the first time i put it up he went on it straight away.... and the rest is history as they say

Nikki_Kev your spot on with your comment, they must leave it when instructed.... thats very important... also if anyone is thinking of putting one of these up.... make sure the dog/bitch keeps there hind legs on the ground. this is very important as the dog could easyly fall and hurt them selfs........
