Wilczek Siwash Dog Carting Harness This specialty nylon harness must be sized for your dog. Very specific measurements (click here for measuring info) will be required to ensure proper fit. We may contact you to confirm all measurements. This same harness may be used with all of our carts and wagons.
"Sacrificial" Tree When your dog first begins training for this sport, he will drag lightweight items behind him on the ground (no cart yet!). The tree (normally connects harness traces to the cart) will drag on the ground during early training. This "sacrificial" tree is provided specifically because it will be damaged during training.
Manual: "Fun with Draft-Canine Training Workbook" This workbook has been produced by Phil Chagnon and Lea Doane to introduce dog lovers and their canine companions to the sport of Draft. It is a training reference guide for all levels of draft work.

Our very popular Training Wheels have gotten a little bigger. We have added 16" composite wheels and your choice of a wooden or our new foldinging basket. The Peterboro Basket Company, established in 1854, has made a custom-sized, hand-made wooden basket just for us. This honey-stained ash basket fits perfectly on our training wheel platform. If you add a weight insert, you will be all set to participate in a novice draft test. The price of this package is significantly less than if the items were purchased separately.
