Spring Pole Question

Food, Fitness and how to keep them healthy.

I would like to make a spring pole for the Sepp monster.

Is it true that, in order for a dog to get a great AND safe workout, their feet should be able to touch the ground at all times while they exercise on a spring pole???

Can't edit my previous post, but that should read "hind feet". :)

There is differing opinions on this but for a puppy like Sepp I would make sure his feet could still touch, even if it is his tippy toes, so that if he misses or falls he won't have far to go.
There's a fine line between genius and insanity. I have erased this line.

Agreed, make sure his back feet are touching
