I believe she picked up a garden cart which you can find at most home and garden stores

The continuous forward movement has to do w/time, and the dog completing the pull w/in the time. I think in IWPA they can go over 60 seconds if the cart is moving before the 60 second mark, and then crosses the finish line w/out stopping. If the dog starts pulling, stops, and 60 seconds passes, then he's done.

I find I'm less of a neurotic nit if I mentally set a goal for myself. Such as, regardless of the weight, I will foul Soleil promptly if she starts jumping and barking. I don't always stick w/my plan (though I should), but it allows me to be more decisive. It's hard to make good decisions in the midst of things.

My biggest concern is I don't know what weight to start him at. This is our first pull so I have no idea what I'm doing

Hey guys!
I just thought I would post a brag for Kayden... since his owner is obviously to modest to do it for himself!
His first time competing, he had the GALL :crazy2: to enter the pro class instead of novice!
And for pete's sake... he pulled 849 pounds! That is over 14 times his body weight! It only takes 4 different pulls of a minimum of 12 times his body weight to earn his working dog title! :mrgreen:

He is on his way!

Its too bad he didnt pull sunday too. All the dogs pulled considerably more weight. Weather? Or just breaking our new cart in? :| Or were the dogs just warming up?
I hope we see alot more of him at out practices and fun pulls... and I hope we definitely see him again at our March IWPA pull and see how he's doing then!
