Does anyone know anyone who has sled dogs?

Weight pull, Protection, Agility, Flyball... you name it!

We recently acquired a three wheeled stand up dog cart.
It has handle bars, steering, breaks and a platform
to stand on. The wheels are wheelbarrow wheels
I think it is intended for training sled dogs when there
isn't any snow.

We thought we could use it for weight pull training but
it is not working out for that, as our dogs don't necessarily
pull straight!!

If anyone knows anyone who might be interested in buying
it or where I could list it for sale? it's in good shape with little
to no rust. It is not overly heavy, we put it on the roof of my
car with three people. Two can lift it but three had to manuver
it. It's about six feet wide from wheel to wheel in the back
and about the same from front to back.

This is the break setup, there is a break on both back wheels and two springs to back it off when you take your foot off of the pedal.

The Palinkas's, (Steve is judging the snow pull) do sled dog stuff w/their malamutes, and have friends who do as well.

I emailed her today.

I'd like $200 for it, I looked online for similar ones and they are $400-500.

This one is in good shape, and I think that is an ok price for it.

It needs new tires, but I just have to go pick them up.

aaaaaand...it's sold. I also have a backup buyer, so I think I'm set.

Thanks for your interest!

I think your dog would be great at it!! You may be right about being pulled down the street but he would have so much fun doing it!!!!
