Michelle's house??

Lol, honestly I don't know. Michelle used to pull with Riggs and let Yoda try out his harness. Yoda wasn't quite sure what was the point of dragging a tire around a field.

I have a harness you could try on Layla if you want

My guess is that the neck area will be a little big, but other than that they are about the same size

Would you mind? She's never minded any harnesses or anything before, but I can just see her being a spaz if I bought one before trying it on her...

I'll bring it to flyball tomorrow

I'll also send you a link to a great site that lays out how to introduce the dog to the harness, how to build drive to pull and at what point you start adding weight.

Yoda would pull but didn't really enjoy it all that much, so we only use it every so often for a quick workout.

Riggs on the other hand would pull the tire across that field smiling the whole time like he was in complete bliss.

Thanks. I don't know if Layla would do it or even if she's strong enough, but even if she can do it every now and then just for a good work out, I still think it'd be fun to try.
