Weight Pull Training

The WP training was great fun today. I made it up on time (even though I didn't get to bed until after 3 A.M.) so I could take Jay for a walk, purchase an additional chain, and make it to training on time.

We went for a longer drag weight walk and Jay had to pull both of his chains the whole walk… a total of 12.5kg (= 27,5lbs). There were a few hills and Jay had to work hard … towards the end of the walk he actually stopped a couple of times, only for a few seconds though ‘cause he cannot afford slacking behind ..hihi.. he wants to be in the lead all the time so he cannot wait for any of the other dogs to pass him. :)

After the walk we pulled the cart a few times. It went well for all the dogs. On Wednesday when our next training session is, we are going to be inside. Well, we probably start with a shorter drag weight walk and then go inside. I believe it’s inside a garage type place that’s heated – it will be nice ‘cause it easily gets cold for the dogs in-between pulls when they have to wait.

Here are pics of some of the dogs that were at training today:

Ja jag färgar faktiskt kopplet nu, men vet ej om färgen fäster. Men det blir ej spilda pengar för det för att jag färgar lite kläder med som jag i alla fall skulle färga och så slängde jag med kopplet med. Så det visar sig. Uppenbarligen så ska man inte ha rosa. Hehe men jag tycker iofs inte att det gör ngt. Jag hade utan problem kunnat gå med kopplet, men sambon ska ju också kunna ha det så då får det blir svart

Hoppas att allt e bra med er Kram
