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?

Your dog is 7 months old, shouldn't be pulling weight until one year old.

Start training your dog to the harness, rewarding pulling on the harness, and add a command such as "forward"
Oh, I didn't mean that Caramel is going to pull the wagon, she's far too small for that. I meant that after Caramel is a good dog, I'll get a German Shepherd to pull the wagon.
