Flirt poles are a great way to increase drive for toys (used later in obedience), excerise your puppy/dog (keep it low to the ground for puppy) and to increase confidence in a young dog.
I used a horse whip and tied a toy (even did it with food) at the end or a rag and let Stark go to town with it. I only let him "win" the toy when he is really into it and working hard to get it. Have fun with it.
