Watch the video below to see the recommended technique when using our Flirt Pole dog training devices and read our important safety tips.
Safety Warnings & Tips
- We recommend briefly walking your dog both before and after using a flirt pole to help prevent muscle strains.
- Flirt Poles are powerful dog training devices and should be used responsibly. Never use for extended periods of time without letting your dog take breaks and drink water.
- Causing any dog to jump can be hazardous; especially dogs under one year of age, whose bones are still growing.
- Never use a flirt pole with dogs who have joint and/or hip problems.
- We highly recommend only using the Flirt Pole outdoors on a grass or earth surface.
- Wearing closed toe shoes is recommended if your dog has a tendency to run over your feet, with claws digging in, like ours do.
- Do not release your grip when your dog catches the lure. Letting go while the bungee cord is stretched can result in the pole section flying towards your dog at a high rate of speed.
- Never attach a hard or heavy lure to the bungee cord. If your dog releases it with the cord stretched, you will have a dangerous projectile flying towards you.
- The Flirt Pole is not designed to be used as a tug toy.
- Never let your dog play with the Flirt Pole unsupervised. It will not survive as a chew toy. Always put it away after use.
- Do not allow your dog to chew on the bungee cord. Check cord frequently for damage and discontinue use if damage is found.
- For best results, also use the Flirt Pole as a training tool. Train your dog to sit, lie down, and wait to go after the lure until you give the command to do so.
- Let your dog briefly catch the lure every few minutes and give them praise when they catch it, but then make them release the lure and start over.
