weight pulling

I just bought my pitbull a weight pulling harness but i dont know how much weight to start him with hes two years old and weighs 72 pounds. Ive also heard of supplements you can give them to build muscle. Where can i get them? Are they safe? Do they work? Im new on this so im trying to get as much info i can.

two years is a great time to start, your dog should be mature enough at this time. i started with my boxer and letting her drag a gallon of rocks around so she would get used to having something behind her and the noise not freak her out. but then gradually move up from there. now i use weighted sled to train her. we dont competition pull, its just for condition training. i know there are many other more knowledgeable ppl on here that im sure will help get you started. also everything i learned was talking to ppl on pulldoggies.com.
i would recommend having your vet check his hips before you start pulling to make sure he is healthy enough and you dont cause more harm then good.

Checking hips is a must . The milk jug of rocks is a perfect place to start . After that i would find an old tire to use as a drag . you can even put bodybuilding iron in the tire bead so you can adjust the weight . buld yp slow and be patient . The very last thing you want is structure damage due to not being patient.

Whenever the pullers are sharing videos on Facebook, they always seem to be doing something simple like taking their dog for a walk with a drag chain. Don't overthink it. Being able to practice on a track helps, but he will gain that experience when he starts going to the pulls. Use your reps sessions to teach the commands and go through the actual motions of the pull. But don't neglect to take him other places and just have him drag while walking. It's a great way to build the positive association with the harness. And lots of praise.

Some longer drags like walks wiht a chain are ok but really your not training your dog for a distance event . I prefer to do more short ., intense stuff but remember , you gotta let them recover in between sessions . Like pumping iron .. your sore for a few days .

Its probably important to do both. If the people who are winning at the national events marathon drag their dogs, that works for me. LOL! I like to practice on a wheeled cart, but I don't have one available to me, nor do I have enough weight to make it worthwhile. I'm going to try the long drag technique between now and our next pull and see what sort of results I get.

Hey CircleM I have a 7month old we have been training for a month now.He is getting use to the word work and comes to me but he is starting to move quicker like almost run with the 5lb weight or milk jug hook to him.So is that something to correct or is it a good thing because he gets really excited the more I say work or good boy ect.Again do I correct it or add little bit more weight I don't wanna over do it of course and like I said we only been training for a month.I do try to walk threw it with him instead of rushing him but last pulls he moving quickly.

the only thing you need to correct right now is if he jumping or lunging with the weight.. running is okay as long and he isnt doing those.. i would probly add 5 or 10 more pounds to it.. 5lbs isnt much at all.. and even if youre having him pull 15lbs its not enough to hurt him.. most dogs are what we call turn and burn dogs which means when they get hooked they take off.. some people train their dogs to be command pullers so thats all up to you on how you train him

I've experimented with a few sups,K9 and bully max. Honestly,the difference that I saw,exercise and a good steady diet made the difference,not the supplements.most are just glorified vitamins or some type of hyped up gimmicks. I'd be Carful as to what you use,read all you can before what ever you use,some of the stuff on the market I'm sure isn't good for the dogs that take it.
