Weight pulling is a
involving a dog pulling a
sled loaded with weight
a short distance across grass, carpet, or snow. Many breeds participate
in this sport, with dogs being separated into classes by weight.
pit bull breeds
excel within their respective weight classes, having been historically
bred to pull sleds and plows, respectively.
The dog is hitched to the sled with a specially constructed
to spread the weight and minimize the chance of injury.
Dog weight pulling competitions are sanctioned by various non-profit
organizations. In North America the International Sled Dog Racing Association
has sanctioned contests in association with their races. The
International Weight Pulling Association was organized in 1984 to promote
the heritage of the working dog.
