americanbull1 is an unknown quantity at this point
What i did is I have a basketball hoop cemented into the ground and is adjustable from 5ft-10ft. Bought a 150lb garage spring(big dog),rope,tug rope w/knots, 3 safety chain tow hooks. Took the rope knotted it to the hoop keep as short as possible left an eye lit so i could connect the spring to the basket without tearing up the rim, used a tow hook to connect them. take the tug rope, open a tow hook and fit before the last knot and close the nut, use the last tow hook to connect the tug rope to the spring. Best way to train the dog because i can start him low and work him up.

Here's a few pics of Dosia on his spring pole. Mine is the same as Matt was describing garage door spring on a chain in the tree. Here you go

What happened to Honeybunch?

Here's a vid of Dosia, his spring pole is low enough to touch the ground but he likes to swing and work his way down.

Honeybunch fell and broke her back and was paralyzed in the rear end, shame imagine what she could have given to the world. Which is why I always tell people to make sure the back feet are on the ground.

How sad, poor baby. Yea I always make sure my spring pole is low enough for Dosia to touch the ground too. Some one asked me about my pics a while back cause they do look a little crazy but I was hoping the vid would help show it better. My boy just likes to swing I guess lol.

Unless your realy worried about how high your dog swings i am not too fussed about having an incident where the dog will get hurt like Honeybunch did, out of thousands of game dogs for the period she is the only one who had such an incident, it was just a freak accident.

Truth is for the best workout for the dog its feet should be firm on the ground.

In a hell of alot of old matches the dogs spent a fair portion of time on their back legs wrestling the oppisition hence why over all those years of selective breeding for a particular role, our breed has two great big levers on the backend and the spring pole is the best tool in development of those two levers!

I am not far off making a new one myself i will snap some pics when it is complete.
The easiest way i think is to buy a secondhand kids swing set and take the swings off, i concrete the legs into the ground a or at least bury them to prevent the frame lifting if your dogs a swinger! in the middle i fasten a rope as a tie off and connect it to a heavy duty tramp spring they cost me abot ten dollars down here plus postage. I then connect a pet shop bought tug rope and cut the furry bit off at the knot and off you go!
If you have a dog that doesnt want to use the rope to start off , all you realy need to do is make it irresistable and the laziest dog in the world will use it, just attach some cow hide and bobs your uncle.
