There are a number of reasons why people have issues with their dogs pulling for canicross and other harness sports. You may have spent most of their lives teaching them not to pull for example!

So is your dog pulling?

When training for harness sports more often then not you will see advice on how to train the person – couch to 5km etc. However you don’t see the same advice on training your dog, in fact there is very little solid information on training the dogs. For most people they attach their dogs, teach the commands and just start running. In a way there isn’t a problem with this and some dogs do just take to it but some dogs don’t.

So how do I get my dog pulling?
