Working Weight Pull Dog
WTD, WLD, WWPD, & WPD

Wayeh has just started dog weight pulling with the International Weight Pull Association (IWPA) -- and having loads of fun.  We bought our weightpull harnesses from Black Ice, wrapped a length of chain around a tire, hooked the leash between the tire and the harness, and started practicing.  When the dogs got good with the drag weight, we added a dish saucer on top and a bag of dogfood to increase weight and drag.  The hard part of weight pulling is getting the weight started, so we conditioned with the truck tire and 40# of weight.  The dogs are already in good physical shape because of carting/sledding.

5% 4 pulls = WD (Working Dog)
10% 4 pulls = WDX (Working Dog Excellent)

18% 4 pulls = WDX (Working Dog Excellent)

Pulls

Dec 2000 - IWPA @ Danville, KY
We took Shawnee to his first time pull.  He pulled great -- after time was called.  At a stocky 110#, we have high hopes for this son of Hope...

April 2001 - NKC Nationals @ Knoxville, TN - cart, artificial surface
Rider had a great time trying to climb over the dog food being used as weights.  And Jonathan said to heck with this and jumped on the cart loaded with dogfood -- i.e., the smorgasbord.
