GWR Aluminum Y Pole – 2 Piece

global-wildlife-resources-y-pole-human-animal-capturingy-pole1y-pole9Net w Y poles The Y Pole - an essential tool for sheltersThe Y pole is a unique tool to humanely and safely handle fearful and fear-aggressive dogs. It is truly an essential tool for every animal shelter, rescue program, and disaster responder. This is the lightest yet sturdiest Y pole available. Dr. Mark Johnson, who introduced the Y pole to the animal welfare community, has designed the perfect pole for animal shelters and animal control. The two-piece handle easily screws together and makes it portable in vehicles and the shorter length can be used in confined kennel spaces. This well-built aluminum Y pole needs padding before being used with dogs. Padding and full directions are enclosed. Before wrapping, you have the option to cut the tines shorter for working with smaller dogs.

The total handle length is 4.5 feet (1.4m). Each tine is 6.5 in (16cm). Weight is 1¼ lbs (1kg). You receive the 2-piece aluminum Y pole, two 6.5″ PVC sleeves, closed-cell foam padding, and complete directions. Duct tape is required.

Price: $115. Price includes free shipping within the continental United States.
