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 owner 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 the dogs went crazy chasing the lure. The bad news is it lasted one day. One chomp on the tip of the rod and the fiberglass broke and splintered 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 braided fleece lures in two 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 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!

What would we do without it?
Posted by Erin on 27th Jun 2015
I really don't know what we would do without this toy! We have a 1-year-old pitbull mix, and she is so full of energy! This is a quick and easy way for us to help her get out some energy, without expending a lot ourselves. It is by far her favorite toy, and she never gets tired of is (this is our second one, the first lasted about 8 months.... with use 3-4 times daily for 15-20 minutes each).
Good exercise toy

My puppy enjoyed this toy but wouldn't leave the bungee cord alone, so that was a problem. I can see a time when she is older when she will really benefit from it. Even now as I drag the lure on the ground, she does get a good puppy workout.
I either have to get faster or spray the cord with something yucky. Thanks for a well made product.

Love this thing my dogs go nuts when they see me pull it out
Great fun for our 3 dogs.

Our 3 rescue dogs love to play with this. Recommended by or trainer. They have tons of fun running around after this.
Great Exercise Tool

Very happy with the quality of this product.
Best Exercise EVER
Posted by Happy Tail Pet Supply on 1st May 2015
This is by far the favorite toy for my 2 pitties. The flirt pole is so exciting for my guys that I have to keep it out of sight in the garage when not in use. We do not have a fenced yard but we walk over 5 miles everyday for exercise. When there is not time for a walk we play with the flirt pole. It only takes 20 minutes to exercise 2 dogs (we alternate 4 times at 5 minute intervals). Afterwards my 2 are smiles ear to ear and they are fully relaxed for the next hour. In my opinion every dog owner should own a flirt pole
Very nice product!

We got this product a few days ago and our dog loves it! He would chase a ball but never fetch it so we figured this product would keep him running, and it does! So far it seems very sturdy and well made. I think the Squishy Face pole will be his favorite toy from now on!
The most awesome interactive toy hands down!

My Jack Russell Terriers go absolutely bonkers the minute they see the flirt pole. We feel good knowing they're getting exercise and having a great time as well.
One of our best sellers--for good reason!

Flirt poles are the best exercise and training tools on the planet. And this particular pole is the best! Well-made, easy to use, durable and best of all, safe. I not only love this pole for my own dogs but I've sold hundreds of them to our customers around the world--we've never had a complaint, only rave reviews!
Belgion Mali"gator" tires out
Posted by Debi Broadway on 24th Feb 2015
I LOVE this flirt pole for playing with my dog. He's grabbed the actual pole several times and no damage at all to it. Surprisingly, he's grabbed the cord repeated times and it's still in tact. I love this product and it does wear him out!
Best exercise and training tool on the planet

I've been using this flirt pole for over 2 years now and am continually amazed at how well-made and durable it is. It's my favorite way to simultaneously exercise and train my dogs and I love that it can even be used indoors during bad weather. I have a website that sells products for pit bull-type dogs and we have hundreds of happy customers who ditched their dangerous homemade flirt poles and are now addicted to their Squishy Face Studios poles! Excellent customer service and I love that they support rescue and are a small family business like mine!
Wears dogs out

We stock these in our store and we can't keep them in. We recommend them to be used for 10 minutes before bringing dogs to training classes. The dogs are able to concentrate.
Fun Exercise and Training Aid
Posted by Shari on 5th Feb 2015
We provide in-home dog training and recommend these for nearly all of our clients. They are great exercise & can be used to teach the "drop" command. The best part is seeing the delight on owners' faces when they first play flirt with their dogs. It's hard to tell who's enjoying the game more!

Love, love this toy! My pit bul has so much fun playing with it and I realy don't have to fo to much! After 20 min of play he is ready for a nap for a few hours! I aldo bought one for one of my grand dogs!
Great exercise tool!

My 7 month old English Labrador was not getting enough exercise due to my physical limitations. This has been a wonderful addition to her routine AND she gets very excited when it comes out. She loves playing with it and I have managed to incorporate some obedience training with our sessions.
Very reasonably priced and a valuable addition to our service dog training tool box.
Just the right toy!
Posted by Sara's "mom" on 18th Oct 2014
Sara is about 3 and was a stray for quite awhile. She has a strong prey drive, will bolt after anything that moves and become intoxicated by the chase. To make it even harder, she came to me with an old break in her leg that made major surgery necessary - complete with a titanium plate and eight surgical screws. Healing required two months of complete rest, just short. leashed walks to pee and poop. And she's a hyper Border Collie mix. We both were almost psychotic by the time the bone healed. The flirt pole is perfect for her! It's helping me to ramp up her exercise to strengthen her muscles, shift her focus from critters to toys, and she loves it! She learned "flirtie" in less than a day and we play with it several times a day, before every walk. I was going to make one, but yours is better :-)
Finally, something that tires her out!

As a Pitbull Puppy Mom I'm tired of taking so many walks to tire our baby out. This has solved that problem! What a high-quality piece of equipment. Light enough that my arm doesn't get tired. I just wish we had a bigger yard, so she could really get going without crashing into a bush.
Posted by Happy on 18th Oct 2014
I have this product in my training center as a training tool to help with holding commands. The dogs love it and so do the owners!! Great idea.
My favorite toy!
Posted by Barley on 18th Oct 2014
The Flirt Pole V2 is by far my favorite toy. When the pantry door opens, I go for the Flirt Pole rather than my kibble! The only problem is that my humans put it away before I'm ready to stop.
Engaging, fun toy!
Posted by bTucker on 18th Oct 2014
We have a ten year old Boston, and an eight month old Boston......I don't know who loves the flirt pole more! It's great exercise for both their minds and body. I didn't think they could play together with it, because little Gypsy is so bossy, but as you can see in the photo, there's room for two! It is well made, sturdy, and the option of a squeaker is a great idea.
