My trainer recommended I make a spring pole for my pitbull, but the trainer at the local HS where I adopted maxi told me to avoid mouth games like tug of war, grabbing her jaws in play etc. It appears as though they love those things, and I really would like more activities to excercise/entertain her. Is this a good idea? Will it bring aggression out of her? I know these may seem like ignorant questions, but I'm new to the bully game. I've had many many rotties in my day along with other dogs, and spring poles never came up then. I have 2 dogs, and I'd hate for Maxi to thinks it's OK to grab on Molly (my other dog) and tug on her. Does it really bring out the prey drive? I'm kinda going for a passive dog. I don't need a protective dog. Any info from personnal experiance would be helpful

thanks

I built a springpole in the backyard for my pitbull, and he hasn't played with it in about 2 months, LOL....he loved it at first though!
No it does not bring out any aggression or biting tendencies in a bully, its just another form of exercise.

Bulldogs were bred to bite and hold on. Its fun for them. Playing tug or springpole isnt going to make your dog aggressive. Playing tug especially can build a puppys/dogs self confidence when you let them win.
