Don’t put the dog before the cart...until he is trained! Many people love the idea of being able to hitch their dogs to a cart and have them pull the kids around the yard or in a parade. Or they have a breed of dog that has been bred to work as a draft dog and are interested in participating in competitions held by clubs around the country that test both dog and handler’s skill pulling a cart. While this may seem simple, training a dog to willingly and safely do the work to pull a cart actually involves a lot of learning and effort on the part of both the dog and the handler. In this new book, author Laura Waldbaum will teach you what you and your dog need to know to help develop a “happy draft dog.” You will learn · The skills your dog needs to learn before he is introduced to the cart including attention, how to stop/go/go faster and how to back up. · All about the equipment you will need including a variety of harnesses and carts—and how to acclimate your dog to the equipment. · The training required based on what your interest in carting—from pulling a wagon around the backyard to participating in parades to formal competitions. · What you need to know about draft dog competitions including what to expect, the skills you need to master and how to troubleshoot problem areas. What dog trainers are saying about Carting with Your Dog Carting with Your Dog is an excellent beginning tool to use in the carting arena. Laura has done a very good job of spelling out the basics and offering helpful and informative ideas on how to make drafting a success for you and your dog from the beginning all the way through to entering a draft test. The book shows you what basic skills are needed and how to expand those skills to enjoy a successful carting experience. Valerie Horney, Bernese Mountain Dog Club of America President and Draft Judge A wonderful, clear, and useful resource! I love the focus on increasing the dog’s desire and enthusiasm for this work through carefully planned steps based on positive reinforcement. This book is full of great training ideas and advice! Deborah Jones, Ph.D., Assistant Professor of Psychology, author of Clicker Fun book and DVD series and co-author In Focus books and DVD series
