Your dog will back against the spring, working its hindquarters. It will also "shrug" the rope, pulling down on it, working its shoulders!! LOWER your ropes!
Good advice right here ^^^^

I wouldn't suggest a dog "hanging" off the ground period, ever heard the story of CH HONEYBUNCH?

Wow, I think some of you guys are being way too hard on a puppy. At that age, we will start very light drag work and flirtpoling across the ground with no tug or jumping. I definitely would not springpole a pup that age, and flirtpole is really even iffy. I would not jog for more than a minute or two, and not on concrete. And I would never, ever use the word "contitioning" when it comes to a puppy. We're talking about a baby, people. Be careful!

My dogs spring pole is so low she can keep all paws planted on the ground (mind you she is almost 8 months old.) she just tugs it like we are playing tug o war.
We also play fetch, and we go for 2 wals a day and thats it besides the training commands for weight pulling

i would think that jumping works muscles out as well. i know that it does for humans why wouldnt the act of lunging upwards affect the leg muscles of a dog?

if you allow their feet to touch the ground they can get more "grip" on the ground so whenever they do grab the spring pole they can also pull, which will allow your dog to work out those muscles. it makes it a little harder to pull when only their back feet are touching the ground, in turn working their cardio, their jaw muscles and their muscles in the leg and allowing them more control. but i also see this happening when a dog jumps.

basketball players attach small ankle weights to practice jumps with to build the muscle in their calves and hamstring in order to jump higher. i know dogs dont have calf muscles and all but they do still have that meat in their legs that needs exercise. plus when they are jumping up and down they seem to wear themselves out quicker, utilizing more energy.
