well if you happy with being follower then side to side is ok I guess. But after awhile wouldn't your neck get tired?

I 've yet to see a lead dog yet that could pull the sled on his own. It's not a competition -- a leader's a member of a team just like the other dogs. The team can't succeed without its leader, and the leader needs the team.

Being at the front of the pack is not by itself an indicator of success -- that pack could be chasing you to rip you apart. But having the pack behind you because they WANT to be there -- that's successful leadership.

Well, maybe I did go a bit deep on that one. Sorry.

All I can say is go ahead...be the lead dog. Now be a good dog, "gee" and "haw" when I tell you, and I'll throw you a nice piece of smoked salmon when I tie you up with the other dogs at the end of the day.

The thing about being lead dog is you're still a beast of burden.
