    anything weighted scars me, herd people having success with them but i dont think its necessary. In comparison i'd be lost without my springpole:D

    weighted springpole runs the risk of hurtin teeth, they can get ripped out my friend especially at a young age, not to mention it could alter the growth if at an early stage, harness will only be part of the big picture, work on wind, stamina, muscle tone and strength will come with these goals, long walks, he'll pull you.

    im not exactly a show guy, but i agree with those two, plus i add some swimming/hiking. the privacy on my land leashes arent necessary so its hard work they really enjoy cuz of the freedom allowed
