Talking Weight training diary

We have been researching and wondering for a long time how and when to start working Balto and Jenna.
Its all stemmed from Jennas urge to pull and Baltos sheer strength and we though instead of moaning about it utilise

So after hours of research we have decided on weight pulling, it requires speed and strength

So Im going to write a diary on here if people dont mind letting you all know how they are getting on

so.....

Day 1

We pinched a small pallet from my work and got all the ropes etc for the harnesses and drove to huge field by us.
My OH has some weights we were going to add on as they got used to pulling the pallet.
So first up once jenna who took to it like a duck to water!
she does the wee little jump start like a "real" sled dog!
OH walks with her as I walk away from her encouraging her to come to me, que me dancing like a loony
So after a while added some weights and she was brilliant

Balto on the Other hand looks stunning all rigged up in the gear, he should be used for the adverts :P
anyway he woud only pull if we did the all run off shouting bye method so he would cry and run or if he thought that it was home time!!

All in all it was brill and we all enjoyed it!

Tonight they have got a tyre each to pull to my parents people are going to be pointing look at those cruel people call the RSPCA! lol

and i know pictures are a must tonight! I forgot the camera Saturday! ooppps

If you made it this far thanks

Just seen this reply today lol

Yeh want to do just a little with Sam, nothing too heavy, couple of kg here and there. Want him to be abit more defined as he is getting a pot belly lol. See imo being onlead in the park mostly has meant he doesnt get worked enough and doesnt get enough exercise. Would love for him to enjoy something other than wrestling with me lol.
