Flirt Pole FAQ

Get answers to common questions about our Flirt Pole dog exercise equipment.

 

Hi, thinking about buying one of your flirt poles for my pittie girl, however I do not see anywhere on your site where it guides you as to which size is more appropriate or why there are 2 sizes so I don’t know how to choose, either the regular or the Jr?

 

The difference between the two Flirt Pole sizes relates to the size of your play area. We recommend a minimum unobstructed space of 15’x15’ to use the regular size Flirt Pole. The Jr. size is much easier to use in play areas smaller than that.

 

I keep getting slobbery lures flying back at me when my dog stretches the bungee and then lets go. What am I doing wrong?

 

A simple change in your technique will prevent any more slobbery lure incidents. Click on our infographic below for the full size version.

Will using a flirt pole increase my dog's prey drive and make them more aggressive?

 

A common belief about flirt poles is that they are used to increase prey drive or aggression. Based on our experience and the feedback we have received from customers, we think the opposite is true as long as our recommended technique is followed. Our opinion is that all dogs have a prey drive instinct, some much higher than others. We feel that similar to how exercise releases a dog's pent up energy and makes them more relaxed, working with a flirt pole releases a dog's pent up prey drive energy and makes them less aggressive towards animals they would normally consider prey. Every dog is unique and we can't make any guarantees in this regard, but we have yet to receive a complaint.

Can my dog get hurt playing with a Flirt Pole?

 

Any activity causing dogs to run, jump, or quickly change direction has the possibility of causing injury.  However, when the instructions are followed and the Flirt Pole is used responsibly, it is no more dangerous than throwing a ball for your dog to chase. For anyone with concerns about flirt poles being too strenuous on high drive dogs, watch the technique used by one of our customers in the video below. No jumping and no quick changes in direction but still getting a super workout!

 

 

I came across your flirt pole posted online and I had a question about it. I noticed in the videos that your pits were playing a bit of tug with the toy still attached and was curious how well they hold up to some tugging while playing? I ask because many of the flirt poles I've seen are made for a dog to chase them only, and break the moment my dog gets them in her mouth. She's a pit mix as well, and unfortunately she has zero desire to play with toys besides a flirt pole so we tend to go through them quickly since they break the moment she catches them. I'm looking for a good quality one with a bungee cord and wanted to ask about your product!

 

The flirt pole will definitely hold up to some tugging while playing, though we recommend not using it specifically to play a game of tug.  The important thing is to make sure it is put out of reach after play time because it will become damaged quickly if left to be chewed.  Also, as a safety note, remember to be aware of how the pole is being held when your dog has the bungee cord stretched.  While the lure is soft and light, it still has the potential to come flying back to you if your dog lets go.  All that being said, you can always return any of our dog exercise equipment within one year of purchase for any reason and receive a full refund.
