Carting & Drafting

carting dogsFor many, there are few more pleasureable activities than training a dog to work with you as a team and pull a cart or wagon. This is especially true of the working breeds but many other dogs can also enjoy this activity. 

Several breeds of dogs have been specifically bred to assist people with their daily work, including the Bernese Mountain Dog, Greater Swiss Mountain Dog and Newfoundlands, by pulling carts, wagons, sleds or travois. 

Even today, in many countries, draft dogs are referred to as "the poor man's horse." They haul milk and produce from farms to market, make deliveries in towns, or even provide basic transportation by pulling dog sleds or small surreys.

A single, fully trained, large breed draft dog can pull loads as great as 2000 pounds for short distances and well over 1000 pounds on a daily basis. When properly trained and handled, a draft dog loves his work.
