    Default Weight Pull

    Hey guys been doing some research about weight pull and would be really interested in getting Bailey into it.

    been searching the net for info on how to train etc and am pretty much just going round in circles

    Does anyone here weight pull with their dogs?

    Anyone know of somewhere I can go for training techniques, advice, harnesses, sleds etc?

    There is another member here who was mentioning this a while ago in his thread - Juzza or someone.

    I think Choppa may know information about this?

    Hi Judge

    Yes, we're into Weight Pull. Love the sport!
    There is a fantastic training article as well as links to harness and building your own cart on OzPits.

    Do they have comps over there ?
    Up here in QLD the Husky Club holds competition days which are open to other dogs as well.
    I think the main thing is do not over weight your dog when you're beginning training and always be sure to do any training in a well fitting pulling harness .

    Dont know if I'll get into the competition side of things but would definitely like to do it for exercise etc.

    We do weight pulling as a way to increase strength for our others sports. I use a basic easy/hard programme adapted from human training books.
