Carting Anyone?

CartFitting

Next week we are going to take a carting clinic and we needed a cart for the class.  We are very lucky that Spirit’s breeders Coreen and Steve Johnson from Tailspin Bernese Mountain Dogs generously offered to lend us one of theirs.  We went to their acreage on Sunday to fit Spirit with her harness and cart.

CartDown

Since we have been doing kick sledding I was worried that Spirit would want to take off running with the cart rather than walking in a nice heel beside me.  She was a little spooked by the metal supports running along side her body but I think she did ok.

CartPull

Of course it was freezing cold and windy for us two legged folks but the dogs didn’t mind.  Here is a quick video of her first reaction to being attached to the cart and then her first experience pulling.
