yep depending on the dog it can be hanging off the ground, but the back paws should touch the ground. Hmmmm let me see if I have a video of one of mine on the ones I had in my old back yard.

This is atxwheelers dog Krusher and my exes white dog Orion -

one has a garage door spring on it the other a spring from Home Depot, the garage door spring is your best bet. That's the one Krusher is on. About a 4 to 5 foot piece of rope and some clamps, not sure what they are called but you can get it all at home depot, it just holds the rope in place at the tree limb and where the rope connects to the spring :D

Okay pics are huge but this is what I use. I rope it up (I dont use chain) got a garage door spring and C clips then more rope and the toy. Mine is simple but it works for me, easy to set up and take down.

(of course he had to play with it since I was trying to take pics lol)




Flying dog lol


lots of distance between the toy and the spring, also a good shot of the C clip

Spring Pole, ?? all kinds of variable ways to hang a limb line... JK.. LOL 10 yrs ago I've always just used a rope from a limb for my alaskan huskies, and wolf dogs then I got Hooch. R.I.P. .. seen how usefull it was. Put a heavy duty eye screw in the bottom of the limb and use the best quality bungie cord for repelling and bungie jumping and hang a rope or chew from that; or use a garage spring like the pics demonstrated..

GREAT EXAMPLES ALL YA'LL :clap: :goodpost:'s

that tree was too convenient I had to do it lol. Makes it simple to take down or put away if I need to. C clips make it easy to switch out the toy too.

took lots of experimenting and trying out different methods until I got it right. The only thing I might do different with mine is raise the spring and extend the rope that the toy hangs from. If you look at the pics close there are two other detachable toy set ups one hanging from side of the tree and the other on the deck that we have yet to install lol
