If you're asking about a flirt pole for a rat terrier I hope this helps.

I copy and pasted this from an old post of mine. I know quite a few dogsters have made them and love them.

For a dog your size a smaller version of this pole will work well too, it all depends on who will be handling it, how much room you have and how much running you like to do.

"Flirt Pole

It is a very useful tool because you won't get tired out while you can have your dog running and burning energy! You can make one very cheaply.

Get a 6-7 ft piece of 3/4" pvc pipe from Home Depot (should be about $2.00) and about 20 ft of thick nylon cord. Tie a big knot in one end of the cord so it can't slip through the pipe and feed the other end through the pipe. Now tie a toy, something big or weird like a stuffed animal (a tennis ball can work well too), to the end of the cord (the end without the knot in it).

Hold the pipe toward the bottom with both hands and swing it around. You will see the toy whips out kind of like casting with a fishing rod. Practice with it a little but you will find that you can pull it along the ground fast, change directions, have it hop in the air. Your motion will be like waving a flag pole.

Now bring your dog out and let him sniff the toy, drag it along just out of his reach, get him interested, he'll go after it. If he's totally reluctant to investigate it rub treats on it or a little peanut butter. After he's interested pull it away faster and faster. The beauty of the pole is that you can generate a lot of speed, much more than if you were just pulling the cord or running with it and you won't get tired. Keep the toy moving a long the ground at first. Some dogs don’t like it if you pull it too hard to change direction and it flies over their head in th beginning until they get used to it.

In the beginning let him "catch" the toy often to build his interest and confidence. He will want to keep playing. It is a great way to burn energy, build prey/toy drive and confidence in your dog."

Rudy, I saw two jacks playing with a flirt pole at the park the other day. They were having a total blast! Peanut butter has paved the way for many introductions in my house. Have fun and Happy New Year.

Rudese takes a while to get used to, and of course, you have to be willing to learn it. It is not easy. He is a good friend and now I can understand 75% of what he says, the rest is "I think Rudy is probably saying this..." He wants information of a flirt pole, and I think he got that!

BOL, Rudy Patudy Picassobig grin
