HOW TO TRAIN YOUR DOG WITH OUR FURBABY™ DOG FLIRT POLE
Your dog should have a solidsitordowncue (either verbal or hand signal.) and should have worked on adroppedcue with a ball or tug rope.
Hold the pole up out of reach from your dog and cuesitordown(start with a sit if your dog is really excited!)
Wait for your dog to look at you while ignoring the toy for at least a second or two. Release them, by saying “okay!” or “get it!” and drop the end of the toy on the ground, encouraging them to engage and chase after it.
To start with, only let them chase for about five seconds or so and then reward them by allowing them to catch the toy.
Let them start to tug on the toy for a moment and then cue adrop. If you need to use a food reward to trade them for the toy for the first few repetitions, do so. After your dog is used to dropping the new toy you will switch to rewarding with the game.
Cue themdownand wait until they are relaxed. (No barking, whining, jumping up, etc.) Then start again!
Change direction every once in a while so your dog isn’t always running one way.
If the dog grabs the toy before you say “okay” or “get it” or is mouthy or jumping on you: take a time out and/or start over.
DON’T USE A FLIRT POLE IF:
Your dog has bad joints or injuries that could be aggravated by quick changes of direction and jumping.
Your dog doesn’t know the following cues:sitordownwait(orleave it) anddrop. Practice these cues with treats first, then a tug toy, then move on to the flirt pole.
You do not know the dog well. It’s not safe to get an unfamiliar dog all revved up. Establish a working bond with a new dog first – make sure you’re communicating with each other effectively and then start off slow.
This overstimulates your dog to the point that they can’t calm down after. You know your dog – if this isn’t a good fit, just pass.
Your dog thinks it’s dumb. Some dogs just don’t dig it.
JoJo tiene solo ocho semanas y es torpe como puede ser. También tiene curiosidad por todo lo que se mueve, ¡haciendo de este juguete un verdadero ganador! Ella absolutamente ama esta cosa! Y yo también; es genial usarla antes de acostarse :)
This has been a game-changer for our life on rainy days. Our dog loves chasing it around and its the only time she gets tired the way she does when playing with other puppies. She gets SO excited when she sees my husband take it out of the closet and runs and jumps around the house.
WOW! Why, in my history as a dog owner, am I just now getting one of these?! Just got a new puppy, my current dog is 15 and I was really unprepared for the amount of exercise it takes to tire out a puppy.
This thing is so neat! It's a great tool to tire out a high energy dog with not much effort on the already exhausted owner's part! My dog is 45 pounds, and this thing seems to hold up very well to his abuse.
My dogs absolutly love this.
A word of warning though..... follow the instructions! They are clear but very important if you don't want to injure yourself or your dogs. I never use this without giving my dogs a walk first.... he needs warm muscles to avoid an injury when chasing this fast paced target! Don't let your dog leap into the air either! Keep the toy at the end very close to the ground. as well as warming your dog's muscles up before playing, remeber to do some cooling down exercises as well.
My dog squeals with delight when I get the flirt pole out :-)
Mi perro lo ama mucho. Tan pronto como lo recojo, se vuelve loco y se queja de camino al parque porque está ansioso por jugar con él. Lo llevará al centro del parque, lo dejará caer y luego esperará a que lo recoja. Realmente lo resuelve, así que al cabo de 15 minutos, está exhausto. Lo uso de muchas maneras.
the material at the end is braided and had really held up. The cord is elastic so when she does get it.. it doesn't break, but stretches. The grip on the handle helps me not lose my grip when I am swinging that pole! I can't believe I never had this for our other cat. She really has a ball with it and when I pick it up she goes crazy knowing what is coming!!
Result.. 2 thumbs up!
I ordered the flirt pole because I saw a video of our trainer using it with another dog. The dog was zooming around at full speeds while she was twirling it. I thought FANTASTIC get my puppies energy out without passing out myself. :-) Well it is totally worth it! She does full on sprints and jumps trying to catch the "animal" that teases her. Of course she does catch it... ALOT actually. Usually when I am not paying attention lol
the flirt pole is a very good exercise. It can get my dog tired in 10 min. You don't really need a lot of space to do it. We always just play with it in our living room. When I don't have time to walk him for a good 45min walk, we will play it. My dog gets so excited whenever he sees it. So I have to put it away when we are done (or when I am done lol)
Most importantly, flirt pole is an wonderful training tool. It's perfect for training impulse control. After 2-3 paly sessions, my dog is an expert in "out", "leave it", "wait". As you can see from the video, he can do anything for it! Even tricks!
Best dog toy ever! If I can only choose one dog toy for my dog, this will be my choice. . It's very lightweight. So you wouldn't feel tired after 20 min playing. The rope is stretchable. So it won't hurt you or your dog.
I'd recommend this toy to anyone with a dog that likes to chase/has some prey drive. I also used it to build drive when my dog was still a puppy, as it would probably hold up better in the long run compared to the leather chamois puppy flirtpoles.
