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!

I absolutely love how well put together it is. I’ve had it for about a week and been using it for intense play. My main complaints about the product as an owner of an active American Pit Bull Terrier that loves to chase but also tug, this product doesn’t meet the standard for extreme play. The bungee cord will propel the pole towards the dog when rewarding with the “catch” (yes I know there’s a safety strap but the release of the entire pole is reward for the dog to win the game). Also if he lets go the toy springs back at me. The bungee doesn’t allow any tugging at all, just stretches. Lastly the toy material is too harsh on the teeth and gums, nylon is not the best for that (I would have suggesting cow hide)
OMG I can’t believe how crazy my 9 months old puppy is for this activity. It has been a great training tool and a way to use up some of that puppy energy. He is doing much better with sit, wait and out.
Love the redesign of the lures. The nylon straps are much better for tough chewers. But we buy extras to keep on hand cause my two big dogs (83 pound shepherd and 56 pound lab/boxer mix) beg to play with them everyday. Its such a great workout for them. Nothing else tires them out the same way.
The pole is big and sturdy enough that I know it's not going to break. The construction seems really good and not like flimsy products you buy on amazon. My dog adores it, but we were pretty confident that would be the case given how she tries to play with our cat lure toys.
Dudley and I really love his new toy. Dudley is an 11 month old Aussiedoodle. I am in my 60's and am not able to take him on long walks or do alot of exercises with him so this works out fantastic. Being able to wear this little boy out without wearing me out too has been a lifesaver.
My little one sleeps all night after playing with his Flirt Pole.
Our 5 month old pup loves this! She can't get enough of it and cries when it's time to put it away. I use it to tire her out when she can't get outside to run and play, It works great. Sturdy, well-made, durable. She's rough with it and it's holding up nicely.
I am a in- home pet sitter/boarder. My pups love these toys. The fleece tug and othe rugs with the bungee works great. We have strong jaw dogs, pits and frenchies and it holds up great and tires them out.
I am in love with this product and couldn't live without it!!!
