Good video for those interested or needing info on how to set one up. I cringe when i see people having it set 5 to 7ft high. I'm sure this will help some people out on here Stan.

:goodpost: me too! some people have the wits and the dogs geared for the job.. the most part is just pet dogs and they arent ready physically or mentally for the feat. .

Mind the video its just slap shot together..

Well even with dogs that are fit for it there is a high risk the way some of these people put them together. I've seen them set up where a pile of rocks or concrete are close enough to where if landing isn't perfect these end result is injury..No matter the drive or how the dog was bred. Best judgement and common sense goes a long way like you mentioned towards the end of the video.

I've never started dogs out on high spring poles, i admit i've done 5 ft in the past (hell both of mine can easily hold 6ft, myles 7ft if i let them) though it wasn't a common practice and it wasn't frequent. I could of went higher but imo theres not really a reason, hard bite and enough to get all fours off the ground will do just as well. No need to have them fling themselves from a run 10 - 12ft in the air just to have them land wrong and end up with a hefty bill to correct/fix. Spring isn't the only exercise out there and it all boils to genetics anyway. Whether its working out or any line of work (hunting, protection, herding etc) either the dog has it or they dont.

Hopefully people will take time to pass this video around to educate on proper methods for set up.

Hey FH, thanks for that video, it's a good one! I was going to reply to you in the pic thread of my boy working the rope but saw this thread instead. Now I know what you meant!

Most of the time, I keep it around the same height as you, high enough for a little jump but low enough for a full bite. That was one of the few times where I really had it up there haha.

Cool video, Hoagie is BAD A.. well you know ;)
