Rottweiler Double Hitch CLIP

Discussion in 'Dog Pictures and Pet Photos' started by RedyreRottweilers, Jan 22, 2009.

  1. Today I ponied Milton to the cart with his mother. He is loosely attached to the cart on a fur saver on the dead ring. The harness is just for him to get used to right now. I need to get a halti for him to wear so he gets used to that too. He took right to it, and really enjoyed his trotting along. :D

    We will stay pretty close to home for a few days before we venture out about town. He did very very well today tho. :D

    VERY cool Red! It looks like they are both taking to it like a duck to water!

    I was very impressed with her turn! Just great!

    Darn kids! hahahaha, always getting underfoot! :D She had to plow through Milty to get turned......but she managed!

    That was great!

    I hear random dogs barking in the background. It got me thinking of a loose dog situation while your crew is harnessed in and would have problems defending themselves :eek:

    Are the harnesses fairly easy for quick release? And do you carry your own "weaponry" for such an occasion? (I am paranoid about that crap after a few bad experiences!)
     
  10. Coop, it is a concern. Luckily, I am very familiar with my little town. We have spent the last year walking on a regular basis, so I know where the distractions are. The dogs you hear are all behind a fence. Pretty well off the street, but still a distraction. You can see Milton's ears go up a few times. Penny hardly even looks at them any more.

    Any loose dog that came up my my hitched dogs would have a lot more to worry about from me than from the dogs. ;)

    I have not been carrying my pepper spray, so if there was an incident I would have to rely on the little stick I carry to cue starts or speeding up sometimes. Hopefully I won't have to deal with this, but it sure does come into my thoughts at times.

    Thanks to all you for your nice comments. This is the most fun I have EVER had with my dogs. :D

    I can't stop thinking of Santa with his sleigh. I just love these videos.

    Awww... Penny is doing so well.... and Milton looks like he's ready for phase two! I love seeing the little black and tan bottoms and their cute little bobbed tails!

    :)

    I'm amused! I love your dogs! I've never seen them hooked up to a cart before. I've heard of it but never seen it. That's awsome!

    Santa's moving the reindeer out and Rotties IN! You didn't hear?;)
     
  15. Yeah, Paw. LOL Dog power, and no worries about sleigh vandals. :rofl1:
     
  16. Today I went and got a halti that will fit both boys. The one for Penny is too small, and I will eventually need 3 anyway.

    Like his mother, he paid it no attention when I put it on him.

    I actually hitched him to the shafts today with a double end snap, and he helped her pull some. He did excellent turns and stops, and moved nicely with her at a trot.

    If I thought we got visual attention with just ONE dog to the cart, the double hitch is even more of an eye catcher.

    In fact today a reporter from the local paper flagged us down, and we are to go for photos and an interview next week for a story.

    I guess if I end up with the triple hitch going I should just go ahead and hire an agent? :D :D

    This is absolutely THE most fun I have ever had with my dogs, and they are enjoying it too.

  19. jingle jingle jingle? ;) I put more bells on the harness yesterday, some bigger ones that were on Penny's basket. You can hear us coming from a block away.

    :D
