We train with Dick Shumer through Capital Canine Carting Club in Austin, TX. Classes are generally 3 hours ever Saturday morning at Walnut Creek Park. He's truly taught me pretty much everything I know about dogs. From cart making, obedience tricks, water rescue, to how to put a jack on a trailer, he's got all the answers. Here's some pics of us in action.
Watch our draft videos here.
Carting/Drafting is a highly involved sport. While many dogs can be
hooked up to a cart and pull forward, we believe that handlers and dogs must be
well-trained before practical use. Handlers must learn to correctly
harness a dog, balance a load, and hitch a dog. Many dogs are not able to
side-step or pivot the cart. I have seen many times where incorrect
hitching or loading of a cart can be harmful to a dog, even passing draft test.
Please do your homework to avoid injury.
