Thoughts on Spring Poles

What are your thoughts on Spring Poles? I had never heard of them before.

For self stimulating play? My male has a habit of getting obsessed when he self stimulates, so I'm not a fan

Snitches get stitches.

Wouldn't it be good to have a way to see how your dog does with it before buying and installing one? I met a family who had a tether ball that the dog played with for awhile...and their daughter. After awhile neither played with it unless guests were over.

I don't see any useful purpose with them.

I used them with my bullies. Great for working out some breed specific behaviors and build neck muscle.

I don't think I'd use it for a shepherd though.

Appreciate the feedback. I am a little leery of them, based just on what I read,
