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!

Hero has been making lots and lots of progress. His only setbacks have been when I have pushed him too far. I am on summer break from teaching and have been dedicated hours each day to his training. Too many great stories to share, but I do have to share this one, for me it was his "graduation." Ever since our sessions with you at the house, I have been working with Hero on an "away" command, where he keeps away from being right in front of doors. For the last months, I drop treats on the floor at the end of the hallway by my living room as I go in and out the front door. I do it 100% of the time. A few weeks ago, high winds blew open the front door at 7:30 a.m. while I was sleeping. I heard Hero pacing in the living room and then whining. I got up to investigate and found Hero waiting patiently in his "away" location, waiting for his treat, rather than go out the un-supervised wide open front door and into mischief. It was worth every treat I had spent!!!!!
