Pulling while walking

What do you guys use to let the dogs pull? i want to start light but dont want it to be loud because we mainly walk on the sidewalk. There is a very large field by my house that we go to that i can walk her at i guess. I just dont want my neighbors to see and think its animal abuse or some crap. she walks with a weighted vest right now (not always though). thanks guys.

Honestly I wouldn't let her pull on normal walks around the block like that. Just use that weighted vest. Have you gotten her used to the pulling harness first? That is the first step, so you can walk her in just that harness to help her get used to it. Just flip the bar up onto her back so it doesn't drag. Then you can add something with small resistance and noise to it and work on that in that field or even in the backyard. Something common in an empty milk jug with some rocks in it. Or change if you don't have rocks on hand.

But don't force her to pull, you don't want to use bait of any kind, just praise. I always kept my leash attached to the harness just in case, ya never know lol. But you don't want to use it to pull the dog.

Your neighbors should be able to see that you aren't forcing the dog to do anything it doesn't want to.

should go and talk with neighbors and explain what you are doing so they don't see any negative when your out there doing your thing. I used to use milk jugs with rocks in them or chain for drag weight and or drag sled later on.

Just ended up doing it at the field so it's longer distance and grass, not loud. Didn't bother her at all.
