Dog Cargo Cart for Transporting Stuffs

Ok so...

This might sound *mildly* ridiculous and mad , but where can I get one of these in CH:

Yes, our dog is big, and loves to pull things (people), so might as well have her help out with the weekly grocery pilgrimage...

Cruel? Ok, perhaps for some of you it is... But dogs pull sleds in packs for racing and transporting human carbon units!!!

Re: Dog Cargo Cart for Transporting Stuffs

We have one, but for pulling a human passenger. No idea where we got it (but I'll check tomorrow) and we (er, our Rottis) have only used it a few times. It does take quite some training to get your dog comfortable with the weight and especially the noise of the thing.

I see several adverts at Ricardo for Hundewagen / Hundewägeli.

Re: Dog Cargo Cart for Transporting Stuffs

You might contact these folks:

http://www.zughund.ch/Wagen.htm



(One of my collies had a bollerwagen. Except, he rode in the wagon and I pulled him along.... )


ETA - I'm guessing that you'll find a wagon at a better price in DE; googling 'Zughund' brings up numerous hits.

Re: Dog Cargo Cart for Transporting Stuffs

Variation on a theme - a few weeks back whilst in our local shopping centre, I saw a young mother holding her toddler's hand as she walked along beside her, whilst the dog was reclining in the pushchair! So cute!

Re: Dog Cargo Cart for Transporting Stuffs

Great tips, thanks for that... Very helpful.

haha on the reclining dog, i can only imagine... hilarious. someone should start a "funniest thing you have seen a dog doing in public" thread kind of thing.

cheers
