My Pyrenees is getting his official competition cart tomorrow, instead of dragging around the garden cart. At the end of January, he will be officially old enough to compete and get his Novice title. I just got him a really really good harness (as opposed to a cheapie nylon one) with sheepskin pads on so he can do heavy pulling. His job will be to haul firewood to the wood shed, haul chicken litter from the coop to the garden, and haul compost around the yard to the garden beds. DH has a bad back and can't do that sort of thing anymore, and I can't do it all myself. We also have a 5-month-old Newfie, who won't be ready to draft until 2010, but she is learning commands in the meantime. Does anyone else draft? What sort of work do your dogs do? What kind of dogs are they?
