IMO, a harness with extra padding across the chest is best. You may have to pay a little more than the bottom barrel but imagine doing sled drags with cheap, thin plastic digging in to you. Kind of mean for the pooch and also not likely to be an activity he embraces.
I don't think brand matters too much. Check weight ratings along with padding and you should be good to go. If you're going to order online double check return policies in case you do find a lemon.
Dogs love pulling if you train them properly. Using treats at the end of a run, lots of praises et cetera and it becomes a favorite game. I had a Boxer once with so much energy it was ridiculous. I took him on walks and runs and he'd nap for an hour and wake up like a dingbat on crack. I started sleds with him in the backyard and it worked like a charm. Just watch for hesitation to gauge your dogs recovery and check for rashes, bruising et cetera where the harness touches him and back off if necessary.
As I typically favor DC training myself, I work out every other day and do my cardio between. I put him on my schedule and he not only got much bigger and stronger but his energy levels were definitely contained. He ate big, and high quality food to match his exercise. It seems DoggCrapp isn't just for humans. And his dog craps were absolutely epic.
Just be careful with pits, some people involved in fighting them come out of the word work at pulling events and competitions (PL meets for dogs)
If they think you have a stud, they may steal him. Keep an eye on him and get him chipped if you decide to let him compete.

i only tried this once because i know you arent supposed to, but i just wanted to see her strength and Roxy can pull a truck tire attached to her walking harness just fine.

That is an extreme case although pits are exceptionally strong. A truck tire works but she will probably make light work of it in short order. You can challenge them just like you do yourself.
Maybe structure her workouts to ten pulls, slightly increasing weight as she hits all ten.
She will stop at her own limit as long as you are treating her humanely and she doesn't feel pressured to go overboard.
Edit: regarding the competition video

my 1 year old female is a lean/muscular 52 right now, so im not sure how well the large would fit her. the pictures on the site look way off but that may just be the pic. the large looks like it would fit a 100 pounds Rottweiler

Recently revived my weight pulling harness. good quality . Shipping took about 2 weeks after I place my order. I will definitely be ordering from Stillwater kennel supply again in the future .

so the XL fits?
03-11-2013, 03:51 PM
Yes it fits. My pup is 58-60 lbs I think he could of fit in the large tho. I had him using it this weekend. Training him to pull is kinda a pain in the butt . But he is getting the hang of it.

i used a friends harness for the weekend and Roxy didnt have any issues. i would run in front of her and she would chase me while pulling it. i know that isnt how you are supposed to do it, but im not into this for competition reasons, just to workout. she loves it
