how to move a VERY LARGE DOG

this is how I cart Buddy about.
I take a large sheet or comforter and put him on it. I put his head towards the way I want to go, and his butt towards the "end" of the sheet. I take the ends by his hiney and tie them together in a knot [with a heavy comforter I just take the two ends and just do the best I can, it usually holds fine]. Then I take the "top" and drag the sheet while he "rides" along. Sheets work great in the house on all surfaces [slicker the better lol]. His heavy comforter works great outside over the grass. The reason for the knot is because if I do not tie it, he will eventually slide off.

Buddy weighs nearly 80# and I am a big, strong woman, but even he is too much dog for me lol. and this works wonderfully!! I am getting a small ramp put up to our "porch" so I can pull him all the way into the house on extra bad days.
