Kodiak's first time pulling. He really surprised me, he is a such a natural. This is his 2nd time in a harness (I don't have one for him, gotta get one) which I had to barrow. I tried him once before in harness to see if he would do it or freak out like some dogs. So this was his first time out. I will begin training and conditioning him for it. With training I think he will do very good and build up strength/muscle so he doesn't tire out. He ran out of time pulling 2,790lbs but I still let him finish it and gave him lots of praise. He did get a 1st place so I'm very happy though I don't feel like he accomplished much. He came in at 58lbs so I will try to work him, get him to a conditioned weight and good training to hopefully take some better prizes. He should be able to do much more with conditioning, I'm still proud of what he did without training/work.

Thanks

Oh yeah I remember you had one for her. Looked very good on her. A friend gave me a harness to barrow for him and also one for another dog until I can get some proper fitting ones made.

Woo, congrats!

Thank you

Well done!! He looks amazing. I had no idea weight pullers pulled that much!
Thanks you. Yes they can pull quite a bit. He didn't pull very much because he has never been worked or trained for weight pull. There was a very impressive 31lbs dog which pulled over 4000lbs I don't remember the exact weight, I know she was one of the last dogs to go out. My friends male pulled about 5000lbs, he is 40 some pounds. Before he was doing 2000 and something up to like 3000 but he has been to a few shows now and getting very good.
