English term or phrase:dog cart in Japanese
I am translating a novel written around 1900 in England.
A cart pulled by dogs seemed to be a way of transportation for the poor at that time.
I am trying to find a word "dog cart" in Japanese. I can only think of "馬車”, but this is not the one so as "犬ぞり”. Do you know any better word for it?
In this work, it is important to use "dog cart", I can't not get away with not coming up better words...
Any suggestion is appreciated.
ちょっと考えると本当に犬に引かせたのかちょっと疑問です。NishiさんやRomRomさんのおっしゃるとおり、通常"dog cart"は箱型ではない荷車に似た「二輪平馬車」ないし「二輪軽馬車」を指すと思います。OEDで"dog cart"の定義は"a two-wheeled cart for driving in, with cross seaths back to back, originally incorporating a box under the seat for sportsmen's dogs"となっています。
