Can someone tell me a bit about this sport? Are the people responsible? Are the dogs well-treated?
There's a competition Oct. 18, and I was thinking of taking our Millie to display:

She had a failed adoption (didn't get along with another dog), and thought I might find more breed-savvy people there. She's 'little but mighty', and I hope she might fit into an under-represented weight class.

Generally, yes. I would stick to pulls organized by mainstream breed groups (it's popular among Malamutes, for example) or mushing associations. I'm not crazy about it, myself.

Saw weight pulling a year ago, during an unexpected lull in a flyball tournament. Beautiful fall day and the dogs seemed to be enjoying it. Don't know that I'd do that to my dogs, but my dogs don't fit that category anyway. They were letting people try empty or light load carts with their "non-weigh-pulling dogs" though - it was interesting.

I could referee. And, you could sic your vicious people eating bullies on each other. How 'bout that?
