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:

Lisbeth -I just wanted to send a quick note to let you know that Lexy is doing great. We are so proud of her. In the last month it seems like she has realized that life is ok here and she doesn’t have to worry anymore. Resource guarding gone. No more worried looks. Even the door is ok now. When familiar people come she doesn’t even bother getting off the couch anymore and minimal barking with any other comings and goings. I have had her off leash a fair bit and she listens when I call her. And she regularly turns around to see where I am. Best of all, she loves to swim and she loves the sailboat. Thanks for all your help – Warm regards from us and Lexy !!
