She’s Pulling

Today Spirit and I attended a pulling seminar. Berners were bred to pull milk carts so I thought it would be fun to try doing something that she would enjoy. It proved to be a bit of a challenge to start with. Spirit has been trained to walk beside me on a loose leash so I had a hard time getting her to go out in front of me and put some tension on the leash.  The teacher said that dogs with good obedience always have more of a challenge with pulling sports.  I did get her to drag a few old bike tires and at the end we did a little work with me on a scooter.  If there was a dog in front of us she would pull a little.  Hopefully I can get her to reliably pull in harness without losing her loose leash walk in a collar. Fingers crossed!!!!
