@DavidHernandez Sounds like you know what you are doing. I would have trouble justifying allowing a dog pull my weight on a board though, I would at least try to keep up with him so he is not getting pulled by the neck, but I see you have what looks like a damn comfortable collar on him
@mikerosa92 I'm very cautious when it comes to my dogs health and safety. Like I said I treat him like an athlete. Stretch, Warm up, Cool down. like I told RobynSecor I don't push him alot when it comes to longboarding. for example this video he pulled me for just 1.5 blocks and I had him stop. than well walk a couple blocks and he'll pull for a couple blocks. Because yeah I weigh 200lbs and pulling that while sprinting for long periods of times is just a killer for the dog.lol Where as in the sport of weight pulling he pulls 1000 lbs. 16ft. under 1min. but that's not running it's at his own pace cus it's alot of weight lol.... and his harness is custom fit only to his body just like his weight pulling harness is as well... no dog has the exact same body so you need a harness that fits the dog perfect to help prevent injury. Collars would just damage the dogs throat. A harness pulls more with his chest. and yeah it has a lot of padding on it so it's comfortable; )
Glad he's having a good time and you're both staying safe :)
@DavidHernandez Dude your dog pulls 1000lbs? He is a beast
@RobynSecor haha yeah but that's rookie weight lol more advanced dogs can pull few more thousand pounds..... his first weight pull competition a few months ago he got 4th place in his weight class... 1st place that beat my boy pulled 3500 lbs. ;/
