Pitbull dogsled/chariot

I have been toying with the idea of making a sort of dog sled/chariot. I was wondering if im alone in this, or has anyone tried, actually done it, or had the idea. With pitbulls that is, i think it would be a blast. Hell with the advances in K-9 thermal wear, those iditarod dogs may have some apbt threats in their future. Or what about jousting? I mean pitbull chariot jousting at your local show, how cool would that be. Just an idea, always gotta be testing the limits.

Well, it sounds fun, and is probably a great idea for a rolling type of thing, but no matter what thermal wear the dog has, they probably will not let it run the iditarod lol. When someone entered a team of poodles, they suffered severe injuries due to cold, and wetness, and some died, so they no longer allow dogs without the proper coat type, only Husky, malamute, wolf types.

Yeah I had an altercation with a woman at the Westminster because she was telling people that poodles can do it, which they can, they have the stamina, just not the undercoat, so they get hypothermia and frostbite. I am all for admitting they can be great athletes, but dont tell people at a national event that they can do something that might kill them, because who knows if listeners are from Alaska and might try it.

I just always think of poodle as dainty animal, this is hilarious that poodles in the iditarod was actually attempted. Maybe im a lil uneducated on issue but i always thought only malimute/husky type dogs did it. Im interested in what other breeds have been used.

The standard poodle, as much as I hate to admit it, is a strong athlete. I had once found several articles describing the exact reasons why poodles are not suited, and I think it had to do with lack of a proper undercoat, which caused them to suffer from the cold, and also their fur absorbs water, it does not shed water like the thick Husky fur. Here are a couple articles I found, neither are very good. John Suter, the guy who ran a poodle team is now an anti-Iditarod activist, but he was once a man who let his poodle's feet freeze to the ground, so I think all sides are kind of unreliable when it comes to poodles and the Iditarod.

John Macilree's Weblog: The start of the Iditarod dog race in Alaska - Standard Poodles banned!

well i own a husky, and i never got up to buying everything for it, but they make scooters that are strictly made to be pulled by dogs. you can take them off-roading like in a state park, and since it's just for fun and whatnot all breeds can do it, although i wouldn't recommend trying it with a small dog. i think the cheapest scooter on the website that i used to go on was around 150, and the harness was about 20 and the gangline was about 7 or 8. that's pretty much all you need, and it would be very fun for both you and the dog, as well as a very good form of exercise. i'm not sure if your dogs are DA or not, but you can also hook up i think a total of 2 or 3 dogs to one scooter and you can get some quick pulling going on! i'm still planning on getting it, but it seemed the economy was going against me, but that just reminded me of how bad i want to do this haha! i shall find the website and post it in a moment! also there are local tournaments and whatnot depending on where you live where you can enter your dogs in and go in races (not for any titles or anything, strictly for fun!!) and it'd be cool to get some APBTs in there if possible, i would think.
