For you, right? 8) You can condition a dog just fine without making him or her run in a weighted vest. I'm sure people here have many suggestions for you to get that done.

If you want to do some pulling that is one thing, but even if you find a weighted harness...I cannot think of a single way that the weights could be added that would not add tons on undue stress to your dogs joints and/or spine. That would just be way too much impact.

well i watch the dog whisper and he said that walking your dog with a back pack for dogs with a few bottles of water is a good work out for them
