View: 2716The draft dog is a fascinating subject. In the old days it was a working dog, a beast of burden. Today it is our leisure and sport companion. In the 21st century practicing dog drafting is fun and a rewarding sport activity, both for the master and for the dog(s). This book deals only with the draft dogs and their activities, commonly called dry land mushing or dog carting and not with sledge dogs. In the first part of the book we'll approach the history of the draft dog. Then we will look at the main protagonist of the subject, the dog, at the hardware, at all sports and recreational activities and we'll tackle some of the specific educational aspects to train the dog as a draft dog. "Use it or lose it" is a golden rule that applies to our brain, to our fitness, to our dog. Keep it active and it will live happier and longer and you, you'll have an unsuspected and unrivalled pleasure! I wish you a pleasant and instructive reading! Be it for you a sting to be ... hitched up.
