Dog carts were originally small, light two-wheeled vehicles pulled by one horse. Later examples such as this one were built with four wheels, and were drawn by a pair. In design, they were a derivation of the gig. Dog carts were generally used only for short trips, such as picking guests up from the station or going shopping. They were also used on hunting trips, and could carry four sportsmen seated back to back, as well as their dogs, which were carried in the slatted boot beneath the seats.
