This is from an old post of mine
I put this in the general discussion because it seems like like a good topic.
I want to talk about flirt poles you have built or bought and what you do or do not like about them.
I have gone through many designs for flirt poles and finally found the ones I really like. The ones made out of PVC or wood I find too heavy to move real well. I went to a Schutzhund Seminar and they had a flirt pole they made with a horse whip. I have been hooked every since. It is light weight and I can really get good movement for the dogs.
here is what I use, a 4' horse whip and the line is another 4' with leather at the end.
