Carting

Teach your dog to pull a cart!

Large dog have historically been used for carting work, taking goods to market, moving firewood or other supplies around the farm, or even pulling people. Even today, there are many uses for dogs with carts, both for fun and work!

In this class, we teach you and your dog both working hobby-carting and carting for official draft tests, according to the rules of the Canadian Kennel Club.

If you wish, you can start this class with a puppy already at 8 weeks, to do preparatory work and get the puppy used to wearing the harness, and getting used to the feeling of pulling items behind of no weight.

When your dog is fully grown, at 18 months of age or older, your dog can start pulling the cart.

NOTE: This class takes place outdoors in Cobble Hill. Rain or shine, so please dress for the weather!

What Clients Are Saying:

My darling French Bulldog Maggie has passed this course with distinction. This would not have been possible without the fine teachings of Karen and Bev. Both these ladies conveyed instructions clearly and with humour, making the hour fun and interesting for both dog and owner. Maggie and I thoroughly enjoyed the course and plan on being back for more next fall. With many thanks,

Lisbeth is one of a handful of individuals that we have worked with who intuitively understand how dogs work and think. Her classes, program organization, library and newsletter are outstanding.
