FitDog: Inrtoducing the 'Flirt Pole'

Hey pups! Mom isn't feeling so well today so this post may be a bit short and in simple English. The title may have been a bit deceiving, Mom has not bought me a flirt pole! Boo Hoo! Instead she made one out of my piggy toy. It is simply my toy tied to a bit of strong, green rope.

A flirt pole is usually a stick/ secure long thing to hold with a rope coming out of it and a toy at the end. Like a massive cat toy. Its called a Flirt Pole because the idea is that the human is flirting with the dog's prey drive. The goal of the game is for the dog to get the toy and the human's to try and keep it from them. Humans use it to sharpen the dog's agility by making dogs do fast turns and spur of the moment jumps and ect.

Dachshund Nola did a review of one here.

The company that Nola did: Squishy Face Studios and on Etsy.

Mom's first version was the piggy, rope and a bamboo stick fromt he garden. However the rope kept slipping off the stick so Mom removed it from the design and now she just wraps it around her hand and plays with me.

Oh Yeah!!!
