How to Build a Spring Pole for Your Bully: A Guide by Fred Duran of Primo Line Kennels and Bully MaxUpdated 21 days ago

What's going on Bully world? Fred Duran from Primo Line Kennels here, bringing you a Bully Max how-to on building a spring pole for your dog.

A spring pole is an excellent way to give your bully a workout that builds muscle and stamina while having a ton of fun. It's perfect for "breaking frame" and "breaking teeth," meaning it helps develop a strong bite and powerful physique. Here's what you'll need and how to build it:


  • Heavy-duty spring coil: Choose one appropriate for your dog's size and pulling power.
  • Bull snap hook: This attaches the tug toy to the spring.
  • Large hook: Acts as a safety stop to prevent the spring from hitting your dog's teeth.
  • Rope: A sturdy rope for attaching the spring to a secure mounting point.
  • Bull hook/swivel: This prevents the rope from twisting and tangling as your dog plays.
  • Wrench: For tightening the connections.
  • Durable tug toy: Choose a toy that can withstand vigorous pulling and chewing.


  1. Attach the bull hook to the spring: This hook acts as a swivel, preventing the rope from twisting. Use a wrench to tighten it securely.
  2. Connect the rope to the bull snap: Tie a strong knot (Fred recommends a double knot for extra security) to connect the rope to the bull snap.
  3. Attach the rope to the swivel: You can either tie the rope directly around the swivel's hook or use another bull snap. Either way works fine.
  4. Attach the large hook to the end of the rope: This hook acts as a safety stop to prevent the spring from hitting your dog's teeth when they pull and whip the toy around.
  5. Attach the bull snap to the spring: Use your wrench to tighten it up well.
  6. Attach a heavy-duty tug toy to the bull snap: Now your spring pole is ready for action!

Important Considerations:

  • Dog's Fitness: Before starting any new exercise routine, make sure your dog is in good shape and ready for the challenge. Consult your vet or a professional dog trainer for guidance.
  • Heavy-Duty Equipment: Invest in high-quality materials that can withstand your bully's strength and energy. Cheap equipment can break and become a hazard.
  • Supervision: Always supervise your dog while they're using the spring pole.

By following these steps and taking necessary precautions, you can provide your bully with a fun and effective way to exercise and build muscle. Have fun bonding with your dog over this engaging activity!
