I've looked on ebay and searched here in my home town for a pull harness for my 62lb-64lb pit bull mix. he is very stout and loves to pull me around so I thought I might get him to start pulling a wagon around with some weights in it. Our dog trainer said it would work great to get his enegry down and keep him busy.

If anyone has a used or a no longer wanting dog pull harness let me know. I was thinking he might need a large one but if they are adjustable then I may need a med one do u think.

Does anyone know where a good website is to build a shaft for a wagon. I'm going to remove the handle and put in a metal arms but need to see how it all goes together and what items i may need to build it.

Would like for it to be mobile where I can take it anywhere I go. I have a van and I already have to carry his place board with me back and forth to class twice a week.

Glad I got back in to ask yall all the questions in the world.
Should I just start out by letting him just pull the cart around then slowly add some weight over time?

Any ideas are welcome pleaase!

Be blessed!

Check out: Tablerock Harnesses and Dog Supplies they offer custom harnesses at a good price, and they're good qaulity. You can also try Stillwater Kennel Supply -- also high qaulity products. Get ahold of either of them and they will take great care of you! :)

edit: Also start out with an empty sled, let your dog get used to the idea of something being behind him. Then slowly add weight. Do not bait your dog to get him to pull(using a toy to turn on his prey drive, etc). You want him to pull to please you, not pull because he just wants his toy. Good luck!

I found a red wagon today but will go pick it up on Monday. I need to take the handle off so I can build a shaft so he can pull the wagon at much ease. Got any ideas?

Thanks will save them in our favorites and check them out..

OK got the wagon yesterday and just bought his pull harness from D&T dog supplies. I'll get it maybe friday then we can start to use the wagon.

What might be a good shaft idea for him? The harness had D rings on both sides to hook on the shaft poles..

Thanks

we bought one of those all terrain wagons at walmart, cost us about 150. we took the handle off and where the handle went were 2 holes, we thred thru like a cable tie out. we cut off about 2 feet of the cable starting with where the clasp is, threaded it through the holes and secured it with a clasp. it works great as this wagon holds 500 lbs plus and attaches right to his harness. it can also go everywhere with us as that's how we walk him 3 days a week. it takes them awhile to get used to as far as running into things like curbs but it works great. we finally got weights to put in instead of rocks. i'll try to attach a video. he had his training harness before we bought his real one at tablerock, that place is the best :) hope all works out for you :)
