Want An Easy Way To Keep Your Dog Happy And Healthy In Less Than 10 Minutes A Day?
According to a 2012 survey conducted by the Association for Pet Obesity Prevention, 53% of adult dogs were classified as overweight or obese by their veterinarian. In addition to the health concerns, many experts say that lack of exercise is a leading cause of hyperactive and destructive behavior in dogs.
As the adopter of two beloved pit bull dogs, I'm always looking for ways to keep them well exercised. My busy schedule doesn't allow for the long walks recommended by professional dog behaviorists. I read about something called a flirt pole and thought it would be worth trying out. It works by converting the natural prey drive instinct in dogs into exercise as they attempt to catch the lure by sprinting, changing direction, and jumping.
So I bought one of the fiberglass rod flirt poles that are made in China. The good news is that the dogs went crazy chasing the lure. The bad news is that it lasted one day. One chomp on the tip of the rod and the fiberglass broke, splintering in my dog's mouth. I was angry and decided to design my own.
Sure, you can make a simple DIY flirt pole following instructions online. But I didn't want a simple flirt pole, I wanted the best flirt pole possible. So I developed the Squishy Face Studio Flirt Pole, which I truly believe is the ultimate dog exercise toy for busy people. Our Flirt Poles are made in the USA using components tested for durability, strength, safety and light weight.
Here are some features that make our Flirt Pole V2 the best:
- The only flirt pole on the market that uses bungee cord to prevent “whiplash” when lure is caught
- Perfect for people with limited mobility
- Our tough dog toys can be used with dogs of any size
- Also works great as a training tool and provides the mental exercise dogs need
- Regular size flirt pole has a 36” pole section and 52” cord
- Jr size available for smaller play areas with 24" pole and 42" cord
- Includes your choice of durable polyester lures in different color combinations, with or without squeaker
- Easily change lures without the use of fasteners that can injure your dog's mouth
- Lightweight. The Flirt Pole with the included lure weighs less than one pound
- Soft, non-slip grip and wrist strap for easy handling
Imagine a quiet evening at home after a long, grueling day at work. The only sound you hear is an occasional “snort, snort” and the muffled “fruff, fruff, fruff” of dream barking. Your furry best friend is sleeping like a log, tuckered out from playing with the Flirt Pole. You are relaxed too. Comforted knowing that you are helping your four-legged family stay happy and healthy while still having time to put your aching feet up and let your body soak into soft cushions. This could be your night too!

This toy is great for impulse control training, drive building, and just wearing energetic dogs out when you can't get outside. I especially like the bungee cord. It mimics prey trying to escape, and it is gentle on young dogs jaws (with CAREFUL use).
Exercise, entertainment, and training all in one!
This is a great toy for our american bulldog. In fact, she loves it so much that she gets mad when u stop playing with it with her! It sure tires her out, which is a very good thing!
I love the flirt pole. It tires out dogs quickly. I use it to work on self control and practice stays. I also use it at my day care program with dogs that don't play with other dogs. Once they get the game they generally really like it.
Our 5 month old Rottweiler absolutely LOVES the flirt pole! Super amazing product!!! I recommend this product to anyone!
Being a dog trainer I know how important it is to exercise your dog. Coming up in the dog training in the street I looked for different ways of running a dog and I have spent countless hours trying different things. When I came across this I felt like all my problems were answered. This toy/tool is the only thing that I can get these dogs to chase with vigor if I didn't have the floor people my business would have failed by now. I am so happy that I have the flirt pole to use thank you squishy face for inventing the very best exercising told the dog training industry has ever seen.
I run a pet store that is also a licensed shelter in Naperville, IL. When we have busy dogs that need to burn off energy we will spend 15 to 20 minutes playing with this toy and it exhausts them. This is way more effective than a walk. It challenges them both physically and mentally. It is by far the best toy for big guys like pit mixes. Really drains them of aggression of any kind. Our little store beagle/dachshund that has the opportunity to play with anything here loves the flirt pole more than any other toy. She loves the interaction with whoever is on the other end of the toy. Just cant say enough good things about this toy!
The quality of the product is great! My dog loves to chase the lure, and I love giving him exercise without wearing myself out when I am too tired for a long walk.
The flirt pole is an ingenious toy for people with active dogs. It is also a good toy for the handler. The handler learns how to observe his dog. He learns just when to pull it out to of his dog's at the correct time so to begin the play again.
