My oldest one i rescued from the spca and is the best dog ive ever owed. she is wonderful with my kids and my puppy is a puppy but such a sweetheart. Im looking into weight pulling for my dogs not so much my 1 year old but the puppy. I would love for my oldest dog to pull my 3 children who are 11, 9, 4 around in the sled or a wagon one weighs 90lbs my other one is 80lbs and my 4 year old is 40lbs. My oldest dog lovessssss to be outside playing with my kids she will ever hop in the sled and sit down so i can pull her around with them. I wanna know what i can do to get her started in weight pulling and what type of food i should have her on? both my dogs are on nutro valtro and do wonderful on it. what kind of equipment should i put on my dogs. I would love to have them both of them one day hooked together and pull my children and their cousins around in the yard. Im open to any help about weight training and pulling... please help....

I have done this first hand. And my kids love it.. Although the 2 dogs on 1 sleigh thing isn't a good idea. Properly trained one can do the job just fine.

First, and foremost DO NOT START WEIGHT TRAINING YOUR PUPPY UNTIL 18 MONTHS OLD. Let the pup live a puppy life, happy and playful. Very very light conditioning is ok, but only in trained hands. You can seriously hurt your dog by starting too early.

There are many threads in the conditioning section you posted in. Do some reading for a bit and ask any questions you need. There is a lot involved.

Are you new to GP? Welcome to ya and introduce yourself if you get a chance in the introduction section. And we love puppy pics here

i don't know much about weight pulling, but as stated above, i've been advised not to do any type of strenuous exercise at all until fully grown. It's also been suggested around 18 months like stated above. It does sound like a ton of fun, i think one thing you could do here in the near future while you do some research is find your older dog a good harness used for pulling and start getting him acclimated to wearing it and feel comfortable in it. Might speed the process along once you're ready to move forward.

Plenty of pullers to harness in printing at very young ages. NO WEIGHT just a harness and tracer and maybe amd empty 2 liter a few times a week for short periods of time until maturity. It gets the dog use to having a harness on and noise behind them.... but besides that ive never heard of a seasoned wp training young dogs under 18 months....

I do agree with this point.

getting a harness for short walks will get the pup used to having it on and walking with it.. After a few months of this put a noisy item in tow (like a can of rocks) Them pulling the noisy item will get them used to not only pulling something, easy as it is.. (which builds self esteem, which is important) but it also gets them used to the noise behind them.
Awesome point J
