A bully stick is a chew for dogs, its dried bulls penis.. yes disgusting I know, but dogs love it, and its not bad for them like rawhide... a flirt pole is like a "lunge whip" for horses with a toy/shamy at the end of it and you get the dog to chase it ect.

I found a pack of the bully sticks at tsc it was 20 dollars. What? I was not expecting that at all. But anyway I didn't get em cause I didn't know how long they would last so couldn't really justify paying that.

My dog goes throw a bully stick relatively quickly depending on how big it is and whatnot. It's something for them to chew on thats appropriate and they like it. Shasta only gets a bully stick once a week but usually every other week.

As for the flirt pole, you can buy a lunge whip for horses and make your own flirt pole or if you're not interested in that, Kong makes a flirt pole.

I call them lifesavers!!! They can help keep Stella busy for a while.

Yup, bully sticks are bull penises. But dogs love them and who am I to judge!?!? I have to get the braided ones for Stella. She can polish them off fairly quickly. I pay $6 for a 12" braided that I cut in half. She gets one most nights. That or a marrow bone or a knuckle bone

I have a horse lunge flirt pole. But I saw a flirt pole from another company that looks interesting. I believe the company is called Squishy Face. They also make a tug line that goes around a tree.

I ordered and just received a flirt pole from Amazon. Seems really well made and what's nice about it, is that you can change toys on the end. I was going to make one myself, but figured I'd give it a shot and while I haven't actually used it yet, think it's really well made for the money.

If anyone knows where to get good bully sticks online for a decent price, please let me know

Don't mean to hijack the thread, just thought it was appropriate for the topic.

I bought some online and they are smaller thank I though- it said 12 inches- but they are skinny- so Max goes through them quickly
Is braided better?
I guess bigger really is better- lol.
They are quite $$$- but if they are good and keeps Max happy- I'll get them.
He really is a good pup when his mouth is occupied!
