Pull Sports 101
Ever wanted to teach your dog to pull a sled, scooter, or cart? Ever wanted to turn your dog’s urge to pull on leash to use in competitive weight pull? There are pulling sports for dogs and owners of all shapes and sizes. This workshop will include an introduction to the various pulling sports and the differences and similarities among them. We’ll discuss foundation obedience skills necessary to all the sports, as well as covering the basics of conditioning and fitness for pulling dogs. We’ll discuss equipment for each of the various sports and it’s fitting and use, and lastly, we’ll start each dog in training to pull in a safe, controlled manner!
