    I am going to start training one of my pit bulls to pull weight. we will most likely never compete but actually use her to pull small brush or logs on our property and eventually teach her to cart. I was wondering if anybody could suggest a good place to get a strong weight pulling harness thats not overpriced. Any training suggestions? She is 3 years old and in perfect health , I know to start slow. Thinking about it it seams pretty straight forward.

    I'm not too sure of a good place to buy the wagon except maybe Amazon.com? But before you attach the wagon to her try to introduce her to it patiently (no negative reinforcement if she backs away, just try again) Since she is a pit bull she probably has lots of strength and determination, so medium/heavy weight shouldn't be a problem. I don't really know of anything else to really mention other than take your time and work with her steadily. I wish you the best luck! [​IMG]
