Disc Golf Dog Cart Guy

Hey guys, long time lurker - didn't know I had developed a small interest on the internets until a fellow player told me about myself being on reddit. So I guess I'm outting myself here.

http://www.reddit.com/r/discgolf/com...nows_whats_up/

You may know me as this *******. That's my dog Ariya.

I just thought I say hi and see what you guys thought. Those pictures are little out of date, I had to redesign the cart during summer. There are significant changes to reduce weight and increase portability.

Anyways, I was told a few days ago images of me had gotten onto the internet and I thought why not do some lurking and investigating to see what the reaction was. So here I am.

Yes I attempted a kickstarter, but got a lot of flak from animal rights activists. I understand their concern, but she never displayed signs of pain or distress - on a warmer day she would get tired towards the end of a game, but I regularly gave her ice cold water and treats and very rarely did I deploy the cart on days above 80 degrees.

Anyways just thought to say Hi and I guess any answer questions you might have?

I love the idea. If I knew my dog could make it 18 pulling my stuff (my last dog would've been great for this and often caddied for me using his backpack), I'd absolutely be in the market for one of these. Being a working dog, it looks like your dog would love this.

Well, I wanted to commercialize it, I don't have the resources to do so. I have several designs that I would like to implant (new ideas all the time) but again it comes down to money. At this point I need a 3d autocad specialist to help with my other project (disc golf related).

I'd be willing to bet that you can find someone that can help you here.

there is a market for carts which are used to train sled dogs and this looks very similar. Cool concept and possible multipurpose use vs just disc golf which makes it a solid idea.

I just keep imagining my dog bolting through the woods and my gear scattered everywhere.

Meh, autocad people are hard to find. I have reached out to an engineering firm - but they said they need a 3d autocad. I reached to some autocad specialists, they gave me estimates that I think are completely outrageous.

Find a kid in engineering school. They have all the CAD resources they need and could do the work cheap. I would've done it anyways...

A friend of mine may have solid works that I could use...

I do CAD work for a living. I've got Solidworks at home, and SW and Creo (Pro-E) at work. PM if you have any interest.
