Has anyone here ever measured how hard a Shepherd can pull in pounds of force?

I'd be willing to bet that there's been GSDs in weight pulling competitions. You could probably find results from those somewhere.

they've had GSDs in weight pulling contests. Its rare as bully breeds and malamutes usually take top honors but i've seen a few. I'm sure you could look it up online?

Right, I'm not looking for how much weight they can pull. I'm looking for how many pounds of force they can pull with. I am not sure, but I don't think they are the same thing.

i dunno. I know they've done jaw pressure tests but i dont think they've done weight pull pressure tests. Would definitely be curious to find out.

LOL. I always loved watching police K9 demonstrations they used to do back home. One of the things on my bucket list is to be the person in the bite suit just to see what its like.

My brother, Fritz, can pull me at dead weight. I've laid on the floor before holding his toy and he pulls me. He's about 85 lbs and I'm not going to say how much I weigh lol!
