And the results:

Old Timer Brutus tried it out first

Then Loki gave it a shot:
He wasn't sure what to do at first

Thanks - as much as I would love to take all the credit I have to give it where due:

Sydney for troubleshooting her original design gave us a good idea of how we wanted to make it, and my husband did most of the constructing, I just helped.

These are just the first attempt pics, Loki is already getting much better at it. I will have to get a vid of it one of these days.

Thanks again!

Thank you Carriana for this post. I seen an un detailed pic of your spring pole in another post and was meaning to send you a PM about a full picture of it because I liked it so much. I'm thinking about making one of these for my guy this summer and I really like your design. :]

Thanks :) my dogs really enjoy it and it's held up well the last five years. I'm sure your dog will thank you for it!

I know this is an old thread, but I have a question... Carriana how did you put the beams in the ground? Concrete or just the same dirt that came out of the hole?

Also what sort of spring is that?

We used concrete. I'll have to check with my husband but I believe it was about 3-4 bags per post. Essentially they were treated the same as a fence post, buried between 1-2 feet deep for added stability. The spring is a garage door spring purchased from Lowe's. We've had this setup for about 5 years now and it's still holding up. We've replaced the spring once I believe due to rusting.

Here is a recent photo with some upgrades we've made to allow the dogs to use the spring pole in all weather situations without it turning into a mud bath:
