What do you use for your springpole?
lilchampdog (Got the BAN STICK) lilchampdog is offline 10-04-2008, 08:39 PM

Im trying to find a good thick tire without any metal wires through it that will last more then a few days. Any body have any Ideas???? Ive used everything I could think of and it either wasnt good for the dog or wasnt strong enough to last. My dogs go nutts when I get them the little tires from the pet shops but they dont last. I've used rope but they dont really get into it.

I have used solid rubber tires off a hand truck and I have seen lawnmower wheels w/out the rim used for smaller dogs to tug on.

You could buy some cow hides, I had a rope toy on mine but she seems to get bored of it, so I bought 6 cowhides from stillwater for 35 dollars, something with a little taste to make her go crazy.

Best thing Ive ever used... My friend is in a wheel chair.. And when he needs to replace his tires. He gives them to my dog.. He loves them.. They seem to last forever.

How about dirt bike tires. As long as they are not "DOT approved" I dont think they would have steel in them.

This is what I use, it's a buoy tied to a rope, hanging off of my back porch. The buoy has quite a bit of spring to it, since I couldn't find a garage door spring. The rubber is pretty tough, and even though he would pull pieces off of it every now and then, it held up for quite a while! I call it my "Alaskan style springpole" LOL

i could never secure my garage door springs well. I went to lowes and got some Porch swing springs. They are a little stiff but they get the job done

Mine loves to fetch tires lol. Great show. Sorry not best pic.
