Harness Used on show to pull owners weight?

Post by shekate » Mon Oct 06, 2008 12:23 pm

My dogs love this show! They both watch every minute!
Last month an episode aired where Victoria was working w/2 large dogs, one's an akita mix, I believe. Of course, as usual, some of their behavior problems were due to lack of exercise. At the end, she fitted the dogs w/special harnesses which attached to the owner's waist, allowing the dogs to pull the owner's weight to work off excess energy.
I've a young husky and would love to know what type harness that was, so I can get one for me and her. Please advise.

not sure about which harness 'she' used
however, standard sled-dog harness' would work great, just be sure that if you're going to train your husky to pull that you also work on not pulling at appropriate times. such as the dog wears the sled harness when pulling and only pulls on command and wears a flat collar and walks nicely when you're going on a calm walk.
