While some dogs like to sniff, chase or retrieve, others like to pull. Carting is a sport for all dogs, with tests organized by several breed clubs. Many working dog breeds were bred to help around the farm, pulling carts to help transport items. To celebrate the heritage of working dogs, carting tests were created.
