Weight Pulling is a dog sport involving a dog pulling a cart or sled loaded with weight a short distance across dirt/ gravel, grass, carpet, snow or concrete.

Many breeds participate in this sport with dogs being seperate into classes by weight.  Sled dog and bull breeds excel within their respective weight classes, having been historically bred to pull sleds and carts as working dogs, respectively.  The dog is hitched to the cart or sled with a specially constructed harness designed to spread the weight and minimize the chance of injury.

  • Dogs must be over 18mths of age to compete.
  • Bitches in season cannot attend a Weight Pull event.
