Dog cart as a bov

Recommended Posts

I have several dogs and wouldn't bugout without them, but Igot to thinkin'-Idon't realy want to have to tote all their stuff if we go. Then Ithought of a dogcart-I typed in dogcart and hit search-was hit by just a s**tload of sites,even a couple with plans for making your own out of PVC and old bike wheels. ThinkI'm gonna try it a simple frame and one of those 6gal milk crates,my neighbor has a little kid bike he's asked me to take to the dump.Think that's about all I'll need. I'll let ya know how it turns out.

rezmut,

it worked for the Indians for centuries before they got horses. Depending on the breed, the dog may actually do better with a "JOB" to do for the "pack". Working breeds need jobs to be happy.

 

Just my not so humble opinion.

I agree Capt. Even a simple travois for each dog will work, just have some serious tracks to cover if evading pursuers. The travois allows tarps to be used that will be used to build shelter and the poles can also be used for building shelter.

I finished the cart yesterday,harnessed the dog to it and you shoulda seen her take off! funny as hell-she was just sure that whatever was back there was gonna get her bad... She finaly decided it wasn't going to do anything and calmed down,today she pulls it ok-still not quite sure about it,but handeling it ok. She didn't break the cart,so it must be pretty sturdy.lol

I made the cart -the frame is a U shape out of 2 5ft long chunks of 3/4inch PVC glued into Tees spread by a piece 14 inches long plugged the outside of the Ts,then drilled a hole for a 3/8 allthread double nutted-14"bike wheel-double nut again. The ends of the "shafts"Idrilled a hole through for a 1/4inch bolt,then put a loop of nylon rope from arround the bolt out the end to a swivel snap that clips to a Dring on each side of her harness. The bed of the cart is just 1 of those 6gal milk crates held on with 3 Ubolts. REAL SIMPLE!

    • This is a great inspiring article. I am pretty much pleased with your good work. You put really very helpful information.
       
    • here is the survival coupons codes to get a amazing material of survival struggling 
    • Hey all, This is sort of cool (okay really cool) and maybe some of you have heard about it because it's been plastered over FOX and mentioned by POTUS as well as other conservative-leaning news people (Huckabee, Diamond/Silk, Candace Owens, Mark Levin, etc..) and politicians. #walkaway is a movement based mostly on social media. Started last year, by Brandon Straka (pronounced Strawk - like "straw" with a "k"). He's a former 2016 HRC-voting hair stylist, from NE, now in NYC, homosexual, liberal who began to question the MSM and what he was hearing. He got really frustrated as he began to do his own research. Anyway, after having his own awakening to the lies of MSM he had been following, he began an online testimonial campaign in which former liberals can post their #walkaway stories, written or video. Many are now on the "Trump Train." Many have simply left the Left. Still, others have always been non-Left and are members in support. The amazing thing is how many different people from all walks of life are beginning to wake up. Lots are not conservative on all issues, but all have a love for the USA and dislike the demonization of open political and social thinkers and speakers. This group gives solace to people scared to voice their conservative opinions or views for fear of negative professional or personal responses. It now has budding smaller groups in all 50 states and an online discussion group where people discuss current topics or issues (WITH no vitriol, gasp).  Here's the original video from Brandon.  www.youtube.com/watch?v=51UGcghHZsk This man, Brandon has a unique, stylish, well-articulated voice to help move people "in hiding" out into the open and not be silenced. Pretty much any video Brandon does is great. Here is the Facebook page: www.facebook.com/groups/OFFICIALwalkawaycampaign/ As I see fights erupt online, I simply leave #walkaway in the comments. Brandon has a goal of 1 million members! The liberal media has called this campaign "Russian Bots" and "paid actors." It's not!!!        
    • thanks to all who  have served or are serving our great country....243 years in the making....   Trump did a good job today thanking each branch of our military and a long time coming salute to the coast guard too....
    • I can imagine food prices going up this Fall or Winter. Corn is used for live stock feed, & us humans consume a lot of corn based products, as well as corn based biofuel. I’ve been keeping a watchful eye on the mid-west of America, which is flooded by water. Where corn  & other crops are normally grown there. Farmers are quite worried about this years growing season. Time to stock up on extra food if you can, if you haven’t already. Stack it high, stack it deep. Store the foods that you normally eat. What ever the  amount of food you’ve stored,  try to double it if possible. Better extra safe, than sorry.
