Training to pull a wagon and walk nicely

I am going to get a German Shepherd (when I have solved all my current dog's problems, of course) and I want it to pull a wagon to help burn off a little extra energy during walks but also walk next to me. How do you to train it to respond to my leash buckles, I guess?, but still drag the wagon?

I would not use a German Shepherd for this. Even a well constructed working line dog is too long backed, too angulated behind to stay sound pulling anything. There are breeds better designed for this (Rottweiler, Chinook, Husky breeds, Bernese Mtn. dogs etc.).
