Default A Question - carting/pulling type excersises with CzW

Hello,


I am looking in to doing new things with my dog. The obedience has gone
as far as we can go for now, so I am going to be starting Therapy dog
training, and I wanted to do agility. Though because she is a Bernese
Mountain Dog/English Setter cross, she is not really built for that kind of
thing. I am now looking in to carting, and drafting type work. Once I get
some gear I will get started... I don't know how good she will be or if she
will even like it, but I guess I will see!
The question is about your dogs. I was wondering if anyone has ever
tried carting/pulling type excersises with them? If so, how good are they?
If I end up liking this, I may look into getting a good cart pulling dog. I
know Huskys, Malamutes, Bernese Mountain Dogs, Greater Swiss Mountain Dogs,
and American Bulldog type breeds are the ones built for this, but it looks
like your Wolfdogs would have enough drive to do this type work, and the
strenth nessesary for it aswell. I am just curious...

Years ago slovakian people started in dog races with their wolfdogs. But it
was just for fun... Wolfdogs are not as fast as Huskies. And it is not
possible to compete with Greysters or Alaskan Huskies...

I would say it is possible to train them for cart pulling but you will not
be a winner in such competitions... Other breeds are better for it
(specially bred for it).

Greetings,
Margo

Thank you for your reply... But I was not thinking of racing type
activities that the northern breeds do but "carting" which is a complete
different excersise in itself where a dog can pull around a small cart with
maybe firewood in it and pull it in from the woods. It is much different
than a sled-type pull, even the harnesses are different. The carting is
suposed to be eaisy, and basicly any breed can do it, but some concentrate
on the work more, and that is what I was wondering about... Are they good
at working and paying attention, or would they ignore you most of the time
with a cart behind them? It is a good activity for a working type dog...

Sorry Margo, but I have little bit other information from Czech mushers.
Its true, that CsW are not so fast, but by long distance were absolutely
on top.

Again, it is true by the short races, by the long races were CsW very
good. Its very sorry, that today just is so less people, which doing
this sport with our dogs. Maybe is reason, that today is very less long
races.

That is more along the lines of what I was talking about. That looks
really fun for both the handler and the dog. There is one site in
perticular that I really enjoy about it being done with rottweilers -
http://www.driversalacart.com/.
I knew when I saw you write $100 it was very wrong, and I was about to
ask you where you would get one! $1000 is alot more like it! Alot of
training goes into these dogs, and yet it is still working and getting the
dog fit aswell. This is more like what I was wondering if you have ever
done with your dogs... At least SOMEONE knows what I am talking about!
