Often used as a dog toy, your dog will have so much fun chasing after the stuffed squeaker toy attached to the end of the flirt pole. An interactive dog toy that your dog will absolutely love. Fun and exercise for you both!
In Dog Training, we use flirt poles to measure your dog's hunter/prey drive.
As you move in a circle, jiggle, and jerk the lure end as often as you can. This will raise the prey drive your dog will feel about the lure. If your dog doesn't slow down and watch it pull away from them after awhile, but keeps on going after it so close at full capability for so long, then your dog more than likely will kill prey animals - chickens, ducks, squirrels, chipmunks, etc.
While moving in a circle and jiggling the lure, your dog will eventually learn to "cut off" the lure along its circular path. When your dog does this, lift the lure out of your dog's reach and watch it jump for it! Let your dog catch it once in awhile so it won't get frustrated and upset. Try not to play tug of war with your dog ever! This leads to aggression. This is not a behavior you want to teach a companion dog. Teaching aggression is only for training a Guard Dog. When your dog captures the lure and is pulling on it, keep the long handle and the rope straight, do NOT try to lift your dog.
The rope will not unravel or pull apart from the ends (engineered attachment points). The only thing that will wear out is the lure from your dog chewing on it with it's teeth! After a flirt pole session with your dog, please put it away. Do not leave it where your dog can get it and chew on the pole!

Lokee watches the flirt pole lure pull away after 5-10 minutes. After 10-15 minutes she'll actually stand and watch it pull away. This is an example of a normal prey drive. I can't recommend this Flirt Pole to you enough! Lokee jumps with joy, completely off the ground, when I first pull out the Flirt Pole!!! When I use it on grass in our large backyard, Lokee even dives for it! She always catches the lure end when she dives for it!!! Great laughter and fun is an extra benefit of the Flirt Pole! Overall this is Lokee's favorite toy!!!

Training Tip Teaching the "Give" command. As explained in our "Dog Names" page, make sure you keep commands to your dog one or two syllables at the maximum (see "Dog Names" page for a detailed explanation). Also, ALWAYS couple a vocal command with some sort of hand signal. Contrary to popular belief, dogs do not speak English. They need a short command they can understand and a hand signal to help them figure out what we want as their handlers.
Once your dog has latched on to something, a stuffed toy, a ball, the flirt pole lure, say calmly but assertively, "GIVE" and point up, keeping the tip of your pointer finger about cheek high and relatively close to your face. This will be your one syllable command and hand signal. Say "GIVE" once and only once, but again assertively, but with no anxiety, panic, or anger...calmly but assertively. Do not keep repeating "give, Give, GIve, GIVe, GIVE, GIVE!!!" This will only teach your dog that it doesn't always have to listen to you and that your first "give" to your fifth "GIVE" it can ignore...and in the future, can just ignore commands it doesn't want to follow. In the beginning while you're teaching your dog the "GIVE" command, give it 2-3 seconds after your assertive but calm vocal command with pointed up hand signal, then tap it with the length of your "hand signal" pointer finger, on top of your dog's snout. For small dogs do it lightly, for medium dogs use medium effort, for large dogs and powerful breeds use moderate effort. If your dog does not release what is in its mouth, repeat the "GIVE" command with its concurrent hand signal again (but remember don't say give, give, give, give...one "GIVE" only). If it doesn't release, tap it again on the top of the snout with the length of your pointer finger. Keep on increasing effort of the tap until your dog will release just as another tap is on its way down. In time your dog will associate the word "GIVE" and a pointing finger with a soon to be tap coming down on top of their snout. When it begins to learn this command it will release what is in its mouth when it looks at your pointer finger, then it will soon learn to give you what is in its mouth just by hearing the word "GIVE." You will no longer even need the hand signal, unless it's too excited, then the pointing finger will remind it there's a consequence for disobeying you. Give your dog a "GIVE," wait a 2-3 seconds while staring down your dog, another "GIVE" but increase the assertiveness, wait and stare down, "GIVE" the most assertiveness without reaching an anger tone, then bring up the hand signal. Your dog will release what is in its mouth! People will think you have a well-trained dog that follows your commands with hand signals. Your dog will understand the one syllable vocal command, see the hand signal, and remember that it'll come down on its snout if it doesn't give what's in its mouth! Tadah! That's how you train the "GIVE" command!
COMMON BASIC INSTRUCTIONS on how to use the dog Flirt Pole. When you pull, or your dog pulls...Pull in a straight line--straight rope and straight pole in a straight line. Do not give it a hard pull up or especially a jerk up or it will break at the handle immediately above your hand where you are applying an extreme perpendicular force. If the lure is latched onto by your dog do not try to lift your dog. If you do lift the flirt pole or jerk the flirt pole up, make sure your dog is not attached to it. When your dog is attached to the lure make sure you only pull in a relatively straight line. It can take an extreme amount of force in a straight line, but it cannot take perpendicular forces in a jerk. Finally, put the flirt pole away when not in use, otherwise your dog will chew on the soft rubber handle.
1. Dogs under one year should avoid excessive jumping 2. Pulling should be done in a straight line 3. Do not try to lift your dog with this Flirt Pole 4. Put away when not in use
If you do not follow these instructions 100% of the time, Laws of Physics will take over or your dog will take over and your Dog Flirt Pole can get ruined.
