Chalky and the boys weightvest.


Recommended Posts

Just seen one of these advertised. What is it? A conditioning aid maybe? How would a weight vest be used and are they any good?

I imagine that, like vitamin supplements, such things mostly shouldn't be needed unless there's an actual issue to be sorted but then I believe a fair few people find treadmills useful.

Saluki greyhound’s banging out pull ups……😂😂😂

as you’ve said I can imagine it’s to increase the load whilst trotting , adding attrition without the need for a treadmill. 

treadmills can cause the human body to be out of kilter whilst on it , I’d imagine extended periods for canines wouldn’t be great also

I knew on or two people in the non-ped whippet racing years ago that had jackets with pockets for lead weights for their dogs to wear when training, supposed to increase stamina.

Didn't seem to catch on though 👍

Cheers.

Big Ron likes a weighted vest for pull ups , body resistant exercises etc weight vests will get the ticker working harder running of course but believe me all running with weight does is f**k your knees , that’s from horses mouth 👍😉

It's resistance training, they will benefit the dog at the end of the day.

But, if you only walk it to the rec on the retractable lead it ain't going to do much.

Lol conditioning is a thing of passion which far out weighs a vest
