Fenway is currently working on his loose leash walking skills. When I take him to the park and it’s just the two of us, he does very well. In class with 6 other dogs, on the other hand, it’s a whole other story. He’s young and we’re working on it, but eventually I’d like to be able to walk all three dogs together. Since Fenway and Avery are both rather excitable dogs, I’m thinking about getting no pull harnesses for the pair of them.
But . . .
When he’s a little older, I’d like to get Fenway into some weight pulls (if we can find any in the area). So my question is will discouraging him pulling on walks be detrimental to training him for weight pulling? I know the two harnesses are totally different in style and positioning, but my concern is repressing his pulling drive before we even get started.
Thoughts or comments?
