I know that some poeple on the forum do some dog sledding. I would like to train my dogs in a slightly different from of sledding. I would like to know where to go to find out what is the best way to train the dogs to pull and to take the turns on command. When I say pull I mean pull with me behind them. I do carting with some of my dogs, but I walk with them or infront of them. How do I teach them to pull me? I have enough young strong dogs to make a team of about 4 to 7. So pulling me shouldn't be a huge issue. Thanks in advance for any help:)
It kinda depends, my dogs wouldn't be pulling a sled, since I live in Texas, No Snow, Be I would like them to pull as a team and be able to pull me, others, in a wagon, or something with wheels. They can already pull a cart if I am next to them or ahead of them. They help me around the yard moving things, and taking out the trash using the cart. But I can't seem to get them to pull with me behind them, or take turns with out me infront of them. Does this help any?
