May I suggest that people with young pups don't do this ??? As much as they would love it , I don't like youngsters doing any high leaps until fully boned . In your case it's fine !

I would NEVER suggest young pups to do this. In fact, I wouldn't suggest doing this with your dog until they are AT LEAST over a year old, if not 2 years old.
Any kind of heavy activity/work outs like this can be VERY hard on the bones of pups still growing.

Sorry...should I perhaps have put a disclaimer on my post?

Oh, and just so everyone knows, she can reach that hide by standing on her hind legs. The only reason there would be ANY shots of her in mid air is because I was swinging it and she was chasing and jumping at it.
I DO NOT let my dog hang with both feet off the ground. She must ALWAYS be able to touch her hind legs to the ground. It's an injury risk to the dog if they cannot keep grounded somehow during springpole activity.

oh! No, no, no, we don't sell these.

We made this via instructions by other dog owners. We already had the rope, and clamps, I just bought the spring, rope thimbles, and cowhides.
My husband did most of the work.

It's funny the things dogs consider fun. Personally, I would find this activity incredibly frustrating and annoying. Your dog seems to loooooove it!

yeah, there's several ways you can make them, but the most important thing is to make sure that you make it safe for your dog.
Oh, and don't underestimate the strength of your dog's tugging abilities either.

Thanks for posting that, Drmom777

She is. She's still kind of "iffy" about the hides. But we're going to work on it.
