Tell me about flirt poles
So I have used a flirt pole once and I have seen it used a few times as a reward for dogs who appear to have little interest in treats and traditional toys. Truthfully it doesn't seem to come out often in my training circle, so my questions are numerous and I have seen it mentioned often in threads here.
Where do you find the flirt pole most useful? Do you use it as exercise, a training reward, training tool or all of the above?
I've seen suggestions on using this as a tool to teach self control? Presently we are teaching self control with tug then a fast down til he gets himself together then back to tug, repeat. Would this be another option for teaching the same?
