Spring pole setups

    I have about an 8' wooden pole with a hook to attach a spring and a tug from, but now that my crazy spring pole boy is gone, I need a different set up. My remaining girls are not nearly as insane as he was and they need something different to get them interested. I have thought of using a long, soft fuzzy toy, but can't figure out how to attach it to the spring. I used to use regular play ropes with knots in them but my girls aren't interested in them and I can't get them low enough anyway (my old boy loved to leap up and grab them.) I am wondering if anyone has pictures of their setups so I can get some inspiration. Thanks!

    I don't think a fuzzy toy would last very long on a spring pole,maybe on a flirt pole,were the dog isn't tearing the shit out of it.A piece of cowhide works good on a spring pole and are durable.

    I just use a piece of rope: Crown Bolt 5/8 in. x 1 ft. Solid Braid Poly Rope in Black-14026 at The Home Depot
    The setup is just a chain (can't remember what kind) wrapped around a tree branch, with a spring (Everbilt 7/8 in. x 6 in. Zinc Plated Extension Spring-15616 at The Home Depot) connected to it, a carabiner with the rope tied to it.

    It seems cowhides are a favorite on this board though. Only one I know with them for easy access is Shane with Stillwater Kennel Supply: Stillwater Kennel Supply -- The Best Pit Bull Collars

    Shane's a great guy, he'll get you what you need.

    I have thought of hide, the problem is one of my girls has severely worn down teeth. We got her like this, even though she was only about a year to a year and a half. We don't know why, it's almost as though someone ground her teeth down. It doesn't seem to bother her I just wonder how well she could grip the hide? I guess it's worth a try. I have used Stillwater for collars and I love them.
