• Your dog MUST have completed our Basic Training class and/or must be able to follow commands of "sit", "come", "stay", "leave it" with a moderate level of distraction before enrolling in the class. Must be current on DHPP, Rabies, and Bordetella (proof from veterinarian required).
Dogs of all shapes and sizes love the challenge of cart pulling. It's a great way to strengthen the bond between dog and owner and participate in a bit of friendly competition at the same time. In this six week class you will learn the foundation and basics of carting with your dog.
Did you know that the number one reason dogs misbehave is due to LACK OF EXERCISE? Most breeds were bred to work; some specifically for carting. Carting offers great mental and physical stimulation as well as builds a dog's confidence.
Places to cart your dog would include: AKC Competitions, parks, parades, marketing job, sidewalks, walking trails, kid related activities, yard work, farm work, therapy work in hospitals, schools, & retirement homes, shopping, fundraising activities and talent shows just to name a few.
Check out our video to see pull cart training in action:

Our trainer has loaner equipment for class time; however it is recommended you obtain your own. We can provide you with resources to purchase both a Pulling Harness & Dog Cart. See trainer for details.
