video Making a Flirt Pole
I've recently gotten myself a working line German Shepherd Dog puppy, named Parker (Von Rakohund D Parker), and am now beginning her training in Schutzhund. As such I had the need for a couple flirt poles, and since I'm maker-minded I thought I'd give making training aids a go, instead of buying them!

I've probably gone about it in a dopey way but I merely replicated as best I could the poles my mentor used. They're easy to make, cheap and very repairable if the need should arrise.
