Lily went carting
« on: February 24, 2008, 04:23:01 am »
and it seems like she really enjoyed it ;D

Some dogs start pulling from the first time they get introduced to a cart and some dogs (I am NOT pointing fingers  ;)) don't and it takes a long time to train them to get used to the noisy objects behind and being stuck between shafts.
Lily and I have been working on it since September and today was the first day she did it  :) She is a very difficult dog but sooooo sweet  ;) ::)

Do you see her smile?

Yeah! Good for Lily! It looks like a lot of fun. Maybe I'll have to try it with Jenny...

Carting is something I would love to try Clifford on. How old is Lily? Can you start young if you don't have them carry any weight other than the cart? Did you get a special harness or make it yourself? thanks for any help.
Lily is beautiful.

Lily is 19 months and I have started preparing her since September. It is OK to start as young as 6-7 months as long as you don't add any weight and use a very light cart (like the one on the picture). I bought her harness from "Dog Works"

Did you guys make the cart?  I'd love to have Chammie try it!
I borrowed a cart from my friend. It's a very light training cart which is excellent for the beginners  :)

I wonder how hard that would be to make...It doesn't look too difficult.
I don't think it's too diffifult if it's just a light cart for fun.
For draft competitions the cart should be well balanced and fit to a dog. It is much heavier as well  :)

Ahhhhh!!!! Miss Lily!!!!  :-*  :-* Just LOOK at you smile!  :D She looks Pyrfect with her cart. WHAT A GIRL!!!!

There are some easy to make cart instructions if anyone would like to see them. One is made of light weight PVC pipe. (Now I have to check my files & see where I stuck them when I transfered from my old computer. ???)

Modified to add the PVC cart plan. It's http://www.sonic.net/~cdlcruz/carting/pvccart.html
