I currently live in Az and have a three year old pit mix named Lulu. Needless to say, the summers are pretty stinkin hot and I am not able to walk her. So, I'm here to find info on spring poles and treadmills so she can get some of the excess energy out! She's also getting a little chubby. :wink: I'm going to be building her a spring pole so I bought a tirebiter for her to play with and get used to as that's what I'm using as the bite surface...

Anyhow, I'll post more on that after I'm able to... Just wanted to say hey!

Don't worry, we are all a little chubby when we don't get our exercise. 8)

Welcome to the forum! What is Lulu's story? Where did she come from, why did you decide to get her, etc? Yes, we're VERY nosey. :wink:

Well, my husband and I wanted a dog and he's always liked pits so off we went to the pound! She and her brother were in the kennel together; she was smaller and so freakin cute so we picked her; she was 5 months old. She's always been a handful!!! I had no idea what I was in for. She's gotten to be a pretty good dog with constant training. I've never had a dog before that you had to stay on top of EVERY DAY haha. She ate phone chargers and two walls. Yes, walls. I can't say that I'd own another pit puppy, as much fun as she was. Unless I got one from a breeder with a proven temperament, BUT there are so so so many homeless pits that I don't think I would do that either... Anyway, I guess that could change. She makes me laugh almost everyday.

Here are some pictures!

Hi I am new as well here ...we used a spring poll for about 4 years with JuJube (my avatar) ....my husband built it out of pressure treated 4 by 4's an eyebolt and a 35lb garage door spring doubled back to make a 70lb spring with a caribeener and a heavy duty pet grade rubber tire (you have to think safety with this because you do not want them to accidently catch a tooth in the spring) so there was a heavy duty rope doubled back between the carabeener and the tire ..the poll was sunk two feet into the ground with a vertical upright to help hold it safely she would jump up grab the tire and swing like a hula dancer having an absolute blast!!! we hung put it in a shady area of the yard and only allowed 30 min a day on it ...so she would not over do ..she would have swung for hours if we let her!!!
you have to think of them as a johnny jump up for babies and hang it so they do not bang around on the ground and put stress on their little feet and fragile knees ...(pits do not have great knees that is for sure ..but if you hang this so they use the body muscle to swing and play instead of the legs they are safe)

we took it down when she got sick but are thinking for the puppies when they are grown and solid ( think 2 years old is a good age for this activity myself) we will do it again ..it was just so much fun for her and us watching her...

indoor stuff we do is scavenger hunts ..we hide fun things in the house and let them find them ...

if you have a hallway it is fun to just roll and ball and teach slow fetch to them ..not easy for a bully but teaches self control!
also teaching tricks of all kinds that do not require room is fun ...

we have long rainy winters here and my dogs do not ilke the wet and cold so winter we have to find stuff to keep them busy and tired in the house with out ripping the place up!

good luck!
