Forum Rules
1. Here we prefer clarity to agreement. Obviously not everyone is going to agree on a topic; here we prefer to talk out our differences in a respectful manner to ensure mutual understanding and respect.
2. Read the Stickies and Announcements. Each sub-forum may have specific rules which trump the Forum Rules in cases where there may be conflicting information. Read the rules of each board before you post so that you are clear on the expectations of the staff.
3. Respect ALL Staff and Admins. These people volunteer of their time and MUST be respected as well as their word adhered to. They are responsible for maintaining a free, open, clear and organized forum. Anyone found to be openly undermining any official ruling by a staff member will be warned.
4. Signatures: One picture only and no links. Images: To keep the forum looking neat and tidy, we ask that members insert just one picture only in their signatures. The picture should be no more than 200x500 pixels and should be of an appropriate subject, for example, your dogs and their names. Should you need assistance creating an appropriate signature, please PM an Admin and we would be happy to help! This is to ensure that signatures remain a welcome addition to our forum instead of a cumbersome distraction. Links: Hyperlinks in signatures--unless to a personal blog or photo stream of your dogs (like Flckr or Piscasa, for example)--are strictly prohibited. Please PM a staff member with any questions or concerns regarding this rule.

I'm thinking of having my 1-yr old husky male pull me around a tennis court while I ride something like this:

http://www.amazon.com/Razor-PowerWing-Caster-Scooter-Black/dp/B001HK23ES/ref=sr_1_11?ie=UTF8&qid=1390445415&sr=8-11&keywords=scooter+razor

My husky weighs 53 lbs and I weight about 175 lbs.

1. Is this a bad idea to do for any reason? Are his bones/joints developed enough at 1-yr old?
2. Anyone have any suggestions for how to do this safely?

Thanks.

I have been advised 18 month to 24 months before starting. However you can practice the commands with him in harness.

I have been advised 1 year is ok to start with very small distances and depending on surfaces and building up your dogs stamina and skill.
Not sure about this scooter though, I would probably go for something like this (this is what I'm looking on getting), will be a lot safer for you and the dog.

Link may be irrelevant to you as I am based in Australia but this is just an idea of a scooter to use.

I just posted the same thing in another thread, but my breeder told me they're not really supposed to run on concrete/asphalt/paved surfaces in general? Thoughts?

Should be doable.

My boy can pull at least 100 pounds on a sleigh in the snow. 175 pounds on wheels should be really easy compared to that. They are built to pull.
