What can Weight Pull do for your dog?
A sport for ALL dogs!!!
Believe it or not, this is a sport where size doesn't always matter! Any dog can learn the sport of weight-pull - from the tiniest of chihuahuas to the most powerful mastiffs - all while having a great time. Weight-pull is an excellent way to exercise your dog and competing can be a lot of fun, too.
We use positive reinforcement in the form of food, praise & toys to motivate and reward the dogs as they have 60 seconds to pull a cart 16 feet down the 'chute'. No dog is ever 'forced' to pull - it's up to them, either they like it (and we think they will) or they choose not to and we help them along to ensure all dogs feel a sense of accomplishment and success!
Concerned about your dog learning to pull on the lead? Don't worry; we understand that you've worked hard on those loose-leash walking skills, so we'll address how teaching a dog to pull on command does not translate to pulling you down the sidewalk!
All of our classes and events are open to spectators!
