My dog loves the flirt pole. I use it to burn off energy as well as work on commands like release, sit, stay, etc. It's been really useful now that it's dark by the time I get home and he can't see his ball to find it when playing fetch. He can see the toy on the flirt pole in just a little light, since it never gets out of his sight. It's nice to have this other outlet for his energy in addition to our daily walks.
He chases it until I make a mistake and he catches it. Sometimes I make him release and start over, sometimes I let him gnaw on the toy for a minute, sometimes he will run in circles around me holding the toy while I hold the lunge whip.
I've read here that flirt poles are only for puppies, but my dog loves it and it's a great way to burn off energy and to work on his commands. His toy drive is off the charts and he will do anything if it involves play.
