medway festival of steam 118 dog cart

The laws about dog carts were changed about two years ago.

Newfoundland dogs are large but very gentle animals as they were used on fishing boats to swim to shore taking a line so the boat could be beached. The fishermen did not want a energetic animal on a small boat.

The owner of one of the dogs said that you could not get one of the dogs to pull a cart if it did not want to.

These dogs have a deep loud bark which makes you jump.
