Hi Jetro,

To get my dog interested, I had a rope toy that I'd had since I got my pup and he's always loved playing with it against me. I always used it playing with him. I tied it on to my springpole and for the first few days I held the rope in my hand and it was just like he was playing with me.

After a few days he got properly into it and I just have to watch him now so he doesn't hurt himself.

Here's a video of when he was new to at about 6 months old.

With Eddie, he's mad for that Green rope, and his true love (or hate) is footballs, he will DESTROY them!

He goes over that A-frame in the background when I have his ball Razz

They're a sheet of ply cut in half 4' x 4' and each side is on a frame that's 4' x 4'6" so that the ply isn't running straight to the ground, there's a 6" gap.

They're very easy to make. I'm doing a mini one tomorrow if I can find some hinges :)
