Fantastic :goodpost: .... younger dogs can be conditioned. obviously not "worked" but exercisedYes you can start your dog now. Our dogs were pulling by 9 months. Introduced to harness by 3 months, light pulling/draggin at 6 months. Regular light work at 7 months.
my rule of thumb with brock has been to watch him close and never let him strain or pull so hard he has to distort his frame.Fantastic :goodpost: .... younger dogs can be conditioned. obviously not "worked" but exercised
This one has been amazing all her life! She would watch some of the older dogs pulling us through the neighborhood and wanted to do it sooo bad! You could see it in her, it was funny.. she would go stand in front of it and sit by the chain

i second thismy rule of thumb with brock has been to watch him close and never let him strain or pull so hard he has to distort his frame.
some good exercise isnt gonna hurt em but putting pressure on joints and shock sure will. A friend of mine sent me some horrible pics of dogs ruined by starting too soon.
i also dont plan on getting serious until we get his health testing complete at 2 .
I dont see any reason you cant got to a pull between 1 and 2 years and just let them get some time in . You gotta check your ego tho and withdraw em before they start to hunker down. Thats what i have been doing anyhow.
I also start light and work up every time .. make sure thier connective tissues are all ready to go !
You wouldnt start bench pressing at 350 ... dont expect your dog to .
