Weight Pull 101

Weight Pull 101

Instructor: Tana Hawes

Come learn the basics about teaching your dog how to safely drag weight (also known as weight pulling). Not only is weight pulling a great way to burn off excess energy, build stronger muscles and greater endurance, it can also build confidence and trust between you and your dog.   

We will demonstrate the correct form and technique for a dog working in harness, introduce the needed equipment (much of which you can find in your own home or the hardware store), and talk about safe practices while “working” this exercise. Even small dogs can participate in this sport.

This 7-week class is limited to three dogs.  Dogs will be kept on leash while working or crated while resting.

PREREQUISITES:  Dogs should be generally healthy with no history of back or hip injury or disease.

EQUIPMENT: Harnesses will be provided during each session.
