We also used ten foot posts which were cemented down two feet for added structural integrity.

The rope was added later to help prevent splinters, but add you can see it's in need of replacing.
If I had to guess what kind of hardware he used it would either be lag screws which are that big or he might have just used big bolts and put washers and nuts to bolt it all together. I like it though, very sturdy

It's held up quite nicely, though one of the beams has split lengthwise from our wet PacNW weather. I figure we can convert it into a swing set if we ever sell the house.

I'm not sure, my dogs never hesitated about playing on their SP - they naturally were eager to go for it so I'm not sure what you could do to encourage a hesitant dog.

How are your dogs with toys in general? My boy especially is insanely toy driven so it wasn't hard to get him pumped about the SP. Maybe if you tried a more enticing item, like a cowhide?

How high do you have it set? Their back feet should be able to touch the ground. Try lowering it and see if that makes a difference.

I like to swing the rope to give my boy an added challenge of jumping to catch the toy - he will typically get a flip in during his attempts.

The toy is a long rope they love and it pretty low they can reach it without even leaving the front paws. I wanted to start low before raising anything

Here is mine. It's portable. I hang it in trees when we walk or on my clothesline.



Here he is dancing on it. http://youtu.be/Sgw694IPd78

Gargamel loves his rope or tug toys. What does your dog like to tug with!? Try that. If your dog isn't a tugger, they may not like a spring pole. Try a flirt pole and see how it goes. How old is your pup?

spring pole pitcure super thread

So just got them playing with it. It seems they are both super jealous that if I let them out one by one to play on the SP they won't but if one sees the other playing and they aren't then they both will. What a mess lol. It's not set very high at all like I said they can reach it without jumping slowly while they get comfortable I will raise it till they have to jump up a little to get it. The spring right now is up to 140 lbs I have 2 shorter ones that are also 180lbs each so then they will really work. I think what scares them the most is the noise from the spring

Try some WD40 maybe??? Totally seems like its stiff but it moves very easily. Maybe its a pound thing? What;s the weight on yours do you know?
