Lessons: Turns, Spirals, Side Step, 360s, and Navigating a 90 degree turn
Teaching a dog to turn in cart is a long process, and I urge you take your time with this. Pushing a dog further than it is comfortable may cause the dog to lose confidence or spook in cart. I start teaching turns by making large spirals in the cart. Sometimes the radius of such spirals begin at 50 yards. Once the dog is comfortable doing smaller circles (~20 ft in radius), I will start to teach a dog to turn and to perform side steps. Once a dog can side step, I teach the dog how to do 360 turns. Here's two videos demonstrating how to teach a turn and how to navigate a 90 degree turn.
