Pull Training Class I
Last evening was the fourth week of seven Points Unknown Pull Training Classes held in New Germany, Minnesota. Having learned "tighten up", "pull", "ready, let's go", "gee", "haw", "whoa" and "on-by" they were ready to be introduced to the scooter to put all of their hard work to the test. I think the herding breeds in the class were beginning to wondering, "what could pulling a tire have to do with any job I'm ever going to do?" However, once they got the hang of it, they were enjoying themselves as much as the traditional pulling dogs. The Standard Poodle, Pluto, is proving to be a natural puller.
The class consists of two German Shepherds, a Border Collie, an Australian Shepherd Mix, a Collie/Husky Mix, two Alaskan Huskies, a Standard Poodle, and a Siberian Husky. Any breed of dog can learn to pull!
