A draught dog in 1915

A draught dog, draft dog, or cart dog is a variety of working dog used to pull a cart. Dogs have been used to move both people and product, in two separate events; sulky pulling and drafting.[1][2] Collies, Bernese Mountain Dogs, St. Bernards, Bouvier des Flanders, Newfoundlands and Rottweilers were all bred for this purpose; Rottweilers and Collies were also used as sheepdogs.[2][3]
