Someone on a Crestie forum I go to took her boy Toby to a UKC Weight Pull competition, and he pulled 210lb and earned 10 pts towards his UWPCH title! He's only the second Crestie to ever earn the UWP.

Here is the pic:


Just figured it'd be fun for all you other Weight Pullers to see. =)

I LLOOOVVE that pic.

absolutely ADORE it when breeds bust out of stereotypes. I've heard Cresties referred to as "prissy dogs" and "girly dogs". Now I can whip that out and be like "oh yeah? check this out." whenever I hear that.

that is just wicked cool.

When I order Isis's "big girl" pull harness I am going to order a small harness for my Boston...I've seen other Bostons do it and think its awesome for the little guys:)

LOL Quincy my THLCC is neither girly nor prissy. He is pretty strong, I doubt he could pull that much weight but he is pretty strong. I know some that are very fragile in appearnece and some that are woosie and wimpy type but Quincy is a man!!

WOW! That beats Nubs by over 62lbs!

Lets say for fun that he weighs 10lbs.. He is pulling over 90 times his body weight. very VERY impressive.

I suspect he weighs a little more than that - most Cresties seem to be pretty close in size to Lizzie, and she's 16 pounds- they look to be built about the same if that wagon is the size I think it is. It's still impressive as hell, though!

Ok, so only 69 times her own body weight. STILL impressive.

That is completely unbelievable. It's interesting to look at that link. In all the other weight classes, the dogs are pulling 7-14% of their weight. Then you look at the 5-25lb class and all 3 dogs are at 30-68% of their weight. That's a huge difference.

That is SO cool. I've always wanted to get into something like weight pulling or cart pulling with Basil, but I didn't know if it was possible. Gives me hope! :D

Thanks for sharing this. Neat pics and I really like this breed, but DH won't let me get one. It is great because it shows they can do more than be carried around.

I noticed that too, still trying to figure it out. Dogs at those weights I see pulling with another 0 on there dogs of 30-60lbs. The Crested pulled more than all the dogs in the 46-65lbs and more than some of the bigger/champion dogs. One of my dogs (without training) his first time out pulled 48% and one of my friends dogs her first time out (though she had training but not a lot) pulled around 75%. The smaller the dog the more likely they will get higher % so it makes sense to see smaller dogs pulling more % wise but normally larger dogs pulling much more than 7-14% is what I'm used to and pulling more weight overall for sure. Dogs in 46-65lbs class did 440-720lbs, mine do that on cart at home (well 400-600+lbs but still). Maybe it isn't as competitive as what I'm used to and there are dogs there which are not very into it. If there are dogs in your class going out at light weights there is also no reason to push yours to pull very much weight.
