spring pole?

So, i got off my butt and put together a spring pole, but my dogs have absolutely no interest in it. Coco is more mellow and likes to pull and run.

Toby is the moose who like to dismantle things by thrashing. he loves tug o war and will yank your arm outta it's socket. I figured Toby would be ALL over it. Kinda disappointed by their reaction to it.

here's some pics.

Well, 1 thing is that dogs can get hurt falling on concrete...
I don't know much about spring poles, so I'll leave that for someone else, but I do know they say you should set t up on soft ground, so if your dog falls, there is a lesser chance of them getting hurt.

well the pole is mounted in my garage. i don't have any trees in my back yard and it is more condusive to privacy keeping it indoors. While i own my own home, and the HOA has no problems with pits...it doesn't account for the non bully lovers in my neighborhood who think all pits are monsters and anyone who has one for a pet must surely be fighting them for sport.

the pictures were taken right after installation........rubber matting works wonders on concrete. not to mention i frown severely on legs being off the ground. I want beneficial exercise with minimal risk of injury. i've adjusted the height like three times.....unlike some folks mine gets lower and lower instead of higher and higher.

about the falling.. you only have to worry about that if you have a hanger.. as long as their hind legs can touch the ground, no accidents should happen

Do the dogs show interest if you are holding the toys? You can try teasing them yourself first then put it on there while they are still in play mode.

How strong is that going to hold up though?

The carabiners are rated at 200 lbs, everything else is above 300 lbs. In regards to the eye bolt that's buried in the cross member beam. I personally don't like things I've built being used until I try it first. I am 6'4" and close to 200lbs. I yanked and pulled and even managed to get myself suspended and put all my weight on it and then spazzed out to see if it would hold. Sure glad my dogs can't talk, probably looked like an idiot. This setup is only temp till I can get the wood and cement.

I'm thinkin the pole being inside is the issue. They will play outside and get all calm in the garage.

find a toy that they go mental for , { we went through a few} but we have things they could care less about its finding that 1 toy they do anything for , for us it was the jolly ball on a rope lol. they make them want it get down and play with them with it , shake it around they will go for it, sometimes it takes a bit for them to warm up to the idea of it Luna wanted nothing to do with the spring pole for the 1st while then a couple weeks later realized its fun and now you cant keep her off it lol.
