It is sledding season here already. We have SNOW! I am behind in my training so to help with this I thought I would make a few posts about sledding to get me going on it.
Since we have two new dogs, it is important to do the work BEFORE you start any kind of real pulling work.
Dogs love to pull (for some reason) but you can ruin an enthusiastic dog easily by not doing the proper work ahead of time.
Some dog humans are afraid to let their dog(s) do sledding because it might not translate well into a nicely walking dog after that.
In this video, I show how easy it is to make the distinction between pulling and not pulling.
