Don’t let what the mass media and other unsavvy outlets may lead you to believe, there is nothing wrong with letting your Pit Bull play with a Spring Pole. Spring Poles, also sometimes called Flirtpoles, have long been known to be excellent and highly enjoyable toys for Pit Bulls and other dog breeds, particularly terriers. They are perfect for owners with limited space and/or time because a Spring Pole can be placed pretty much anywhere, and takes very little upkeep.
Want to buy a spring pole? Save your time and money, and follow this step-by-step guide on how to make your own springpole!
This spring pole for a puppy was made by my brother-in-law for their puppy, Kaia. With just a few simple materials readily found at any Home Depot, and a little time, you can create an entertaining/durable toy for your dog.
Dan was kind enough to give me step by step instructions on how to build a spring pole suitable for pit bulls, as well as some pictures to help you in construction (plus some bonus shots of Kaia playing). There is also a Spring Pole FAQ page at the end that addresses many questions about Springpoles for dogs.
