Mine is something like this (mine has a stuffed animal at the end) We have had it almost three years and several dogs and it's in great shape.

Pax8 I just got a regular horse whip on Amazon and I tie flat toys to the end of it.
This one. It's light and springy with enough snap to build drive and long enough that you can get some good distance even with a large dog chasing it. Like I said I tie small stuffed toys or the flat animal toys to it. Sometimes I'll mix it up and find interesting things. Kaiju liked it the time I tied a jingly wicker cat toy to it and let him chase it. It just got torn up pretty quickly.

llombardo When my female was that age I let her catch it and walk away with it telling her you win . She loved when she won. Letting her win built up her confidence. It was a good way to teach drop it to, because if she didn't drop it then she couldn't play. Almost 3 years later, she cries when she sees that flirt pole coming out. It's her favorite thing besides her rock, she loves her rock .

Pax8 It just slips away? What kind of toy is on the end of it? Is he just not gripping it?

Flirt pole ?

I am trying out a flirt pole for my 12 week old pup and he loves it. My question is in the fact that when he bites it it slides through his grip. I don't want to discourage him into thinking he should not try because it just slips away when he does catch it. Any thoughts?
