When my pup was littler i used a harness with a leash and i threw a toy and when he started to go after the toy i would give him a lot of resistance. It gave him nice hard workout.

I get all my harnesses from Missy Kehler at

Alaskan Dream Dog Equipement

ADDE Harnesses

ADDE Measurements

ADDE Weight Pulling Equipment

I highly recommend her.

__________________________________________________ ____________

I start training my dogs at 7 weeks. I have many different size harnesses so I can do this. They start by just getting use to the harness for a few weeks. then I start putting things behind that will make noise or have a tiny bit of resistants. I have a choker chain with bells, and keys so it makes noise behind them. Then I have chain that starting weight is 1 lbs going up to 25 lbs. And my dogs do not get heavy weight on them until they are 12 months of age and then still I am leary about allowing them to pull at there full potential. From my Presa's to my Staffies b/c I do not want to damage growth plates. Once they are 2 is when they get to pull to there full potential. To me they have many years to become a GREAT heavy weight puller.

My pup is 3 months old, and growing like a weed. He is used to his walking harness, and loves it, because he knows it means walk/play time. I really want to get him into weight pull, and bring some good press to the Ambully breed. Anyone have advice? I have read the other posts, and done searches, but I still have questions.
1-Should I wait till he is older, to buy a wp harness?
2-What kind of harness should I be getting him used to at 3 months?Weight pull or walking?
3-Dragging a bottle behind him-How far back should it be?/Is a walking harness ok to use since he will outgrow any wp harness I may buy?/What should be used to attach the bottle to the harness?
4-At what age should I get him x-rayed, or OFA'd to make sure his hips are good for the sport?
These are just a few of the questions I have, but any help is appreciated. And I appreciate everyones input, but please limit your input to things you know, not things you've heard. I would rather get advice from someone experienced in w.p., then someone such as myself who has done a little reading/searching of sites. Thanks again.

1-Should I wait till he is older, to buy a wp harness? This answer is really up to you. It just depends on how much money you want to spend on starting training

2-What kind of harness should I be getting him used to at 3 months?Weight pull or walking? I feel if you want to wp you should use a wp harness b/c they fit totally different on the dog

3-Dragging a bottle behind him-How far back should it be? well off of a wp harness you can put it about 2 feet behind the dog for the drag.
Is a walking harness ok to use since he will outgrow any wp harness I may buy? Yes if you wish to use it to get the pup use to having something behind the pup.
What should be used to attach the bottle to the harness? you can go get some rope and a couple of clips to attach.

4-At what age should I get him x-rayed, or OFA'd to make sure his hips are good for the sport? for PennHip you can do as early as 4 months of age but they prefer the earliest to be 9 months. OFC you can Prelim your pup at one year of age and certify at two years of age.

you are more then welcome to contact me private anytime you wish. I would be happy to help you

If you want to WP buy a WP harness. PRACTICE LIKE YOU PLAY!! I start all my dogs young, 3 months of age with a nice easy pull and just getting used to a harness and getting their mind right. The mind is a huge aspect of the game. For me, and this is just my opinion, I never walk a dog in a harness. Reason being is when I put a harness on a dog I want that dog to know it can pull as hard as it wants to and it will not be stopped. I never have used the milk carton and rocks, instead I start out with plate weights. They drag real easy and can be bought in weights as low as 2 1/2 lbs and a 3 month old can drag that! Good luck with your endevaure and keep us posted on your progress.

Switch @3 months in a make shift harness.





Somewhere along the line he got confused!!!!!



4-5 months



8 months



About 1.5 years old

Thanks for the great advice guys/gals. The pics were very helpful, as well as the advice to not walk him in a harness, so he gets used to being able to pull all he wants. I am going to try to turn his harness into a makeshift one like i saw in the pic up there. Thanks again! I will post progress as he makes it.

pulling

ive also considered weight pulling for reuger. from what i understand its a great way to add size to your dog and also channel some of her excess energy. reuger is VERY strong for her size (about 45lbs) but ive been told that not all dogs have the buid or frame for puling. the pic under my username and in my profile are of reuger within the last month, What do you guys think?

Size is irrelevant. I have seen a dog from FL thats 33lbs, conformation is OFF but this dog pulls like a tugboat. Absolutely no quit in the dog and actually has ACED out in the ADBA now.

OFK wow thanks for the pic's and the info i like this site because of people like you and DEB who are here to help no matter what. I've been pulling now for a few months and still need alot of help.. See i live in the city so i don't have to much room to build a track so i just go to any event and pull novice to try and get some track time but for conditioning i go to the local park and drag weight either 40lbs around a mile long track or 80lbs i do back and forths the problem i'm having is that my dog likes to back up and hit the weight with his chest some call it sling shot but when he backs up he fall's off the track not like a wheeled pull where he has room

Try and dont let your dog do this.. I am not a fan of this at all. If your dog is doing this back off the weight. Let your dog know that is not an option. Reason being, the MAJORITY of dogs that use this tactic will quit when the weight gets heavy. The technique works when its not that heavy but you want a dog that will stay in it when they are pulling. I would recommend backing off the weight when the dog does this or not pulling so far. Stay with the 80lbs if you would like but only do15-20ft pulls. Let the dog rest and repeat once or twice. Remeber you never start with a champion dog, you create one. In my mind when I start a dog I am looking for that dog to peak at about 2 years of age. I want the 2 years prior to that be all training getting the dog ready for that time.! GL and if you have any question just ask and we will do what we can to help.
