flirt pole - toy or training tool?
First: to any other n00bs: if you want a mind blowingly easy way to wear your puppys butt out go get yourself a flirt pole.
I ordered a flirt pole off of Amazon. What I got way a three foot lone PVC pipe with a six foot long bungy coord with a braided fleece thing on the end. The toy can be replaced easily. Overall it would be really easy to make one yourself, but I'm busy so this will do nicely for now.
Anyway, as soon as I got it out of the box I took Kaiser in to the backyard to see what he thought. His immediate response was 4 paws up! I ran in him circles and back and forth in the back yard for about 15 minutes.
I've looked on Youtube and it just looks like everybody is doing what I'm doing: wear your dog out. He seems to have a great time chasing after the toy. We play a little tug o war. It definitely highlights my need to get the 'drop it' command working.
What else can I do with the flirt pole?
