so i'm ready to start pulling, but i was wondering if anyone had any suggestion on what surface is best for traction and paw safety? just want to make sure i can scope out an area with the right stuff and that won't attract a lot of negative attention, thanks!

To me grass and sand are the best choises.

just about anything other than pavement and concrete. Depending on the pull you go to, your dog will be pulling on anything from carpet to snow and ice.
