Carting

Mark & Sidney & cart

Carting is a hoot!

The only problem you may have is getting the dog to move in a walk. There are two types of carting.  There is draft-work carting where the dog stays in a walk.  This is usually a two-wheeled cart with shafts like a horse-drawn wagon hooked to a BIG dog, St. Bernard, Newfie, etc. However, ANY dog can do this, and Malamutes are perfect, big-boned, love to pull.

There is sled-training carting, where the dogsled is substituted for a wheeled rig.  Malamutes or Siberians can do this but where a helmet, pads, and boots.  Why? <g>
