Achilles.10.7 is an unknown quantity at this point
Question How to begin wp training?

Any help would be greatly appreciated, i have a 10 month old light brindle Apbt x Johnson type American bulldog, he's really strong and really active since he was a baby he could run obstacle courses and climbing. I ant him to be in the best shape and i really think he'd do great in weight pulling, ie read a couple threads but what are the basics to getting him started in this sport? How long should i wait to begin training him? And what type of vest would be best to start him with? And what kind of training regime should i have him on?

And another thing I'm curious about is his nutrition, I'm planning on switching him to blue buffalo wilderness puppy, from nutro young adult since he recently broke out in hives and I'm also considering using a supplement called k9 show stopper that's supposed to help his joints since I've heard pits are prone to hip dysplasia and i also read its good for a quality physique but does anyone know if out really works? Or if there's any other supplement you could recommend that's safe

Hello and WELCOME!!! I am just starting out with drag training my dogs. I have a 1 year old and an 8 month old APBT's. I've always been told the best way to start is with a milk jug with some rocks in it or water for a little weight.. or empty to start. Get you a weight pull harness or a working/walking harness. I have the working/walking, it's not for competition but it's good for practice at home. You can check out Stillwater Kennel Supply -- The Best Pit Bull Collars they sell them. Anyway so get your harness and hook him up to a little milk jug to just get him used to it. You want to build his confidence in pulling so slowly add weight overtime. Don't let him too pull anything to heavy just yet as he is still a developing puppy!

If he is almost a year I wouldn't go to puppy food I would go to a nice grain free adult food. I would wait a bit before having your dog drag any substantial weight. I always heard 18 months or older. And typically start with long chains as weight they offer the less resistance on uneven earth. Good luck !!!

Thanks to the the of you! Yeah i keep seeing that a good age to start is a year and a half to two years do I'll keep him with moderate exercise in the morning and afternoon plus good nutrition of course, but i think he'd really like it and he'd be pretty good at it I've seen him do something similar when i walk him with my moms dog the other one usually turns back fighting with him to go home and my dog Achilles gets all excited and starts pulling him the opposite direction till he gives up and yeah i have him on nutro large breed young adult buy he's allergic i have to see the food food recommendation for blue wilderness large breed adult food and I want to get him the k9 show stopper. But thanks again I'll check that website out and look into the harnesses.
