The Springpole has been used by professional dog trainers for over a hundred years.
The benefits of a dog tugging on something overhead and the results that are produced is well documented.
A springpole is technically any stretchy device that is hung and tugged on from below by a dog.
If your dog uses a springpole regularly then you will see an increase in strength and muscle.
Just like doing pull ups over and over again will make a human stronger, the same is true in dogs.
The first springpoles were just a bite target (cotton rope or linen rag) attached to a long springy tree branch or a sapling.
The name came from the similarity to a “springpole lathe” a wood working tool that has been used since at least the viking age.
Springpoles are actually very simple to make, anyone can assemble an effective springpole from supplies found at the hardware store.
The concept is so simple that most people do just that and can have very good results but Tugmutt springpoles have been designed to get the very best results in the safest and most effective way possible.
