I have a dog problem

Keep him lean, better for hips and agility. You don't have too much of a distance to go, a transom door would be clean looking and maybe convenient for you. There are also many diff davits, small 125 lbs and maybe removable. You could also make your own block and tackle style to save $.

I guess I could chime in here. When we went looking for a Trawler a few years ago, I originally had a traditional Tri-Cab in mind, but wanted something with more Cockpit space.
Also, Dog access was a prime factor and the Tri-Cabs would not handle that well at all.
When the Sedan came along, she was pretty much a "slam-dunk". I got lots of cockpit space and a Transom "doggie-door".

I cannot imagine boating with a dog, or plural, without a Transom door.

By the following year, I had hacked together that "portable" Doggie swim ramp that allows her to come and go into the water on her own. She actually much prefers to be "In the Water" than "On the Water", and barks insanely at the Bow Waves.

Dinghy access on the other hand is still a bit challenging. We plan to conquer that one this season.

Inflatable works for us

I have a 34 Californian with a swim platform. The dingy is a 10 foot coastal and we haul the bow of the inflatable way up high on the transom. Then it is an easy one step onto the inflatable bow and an even smaller step up over the rail. We have our 12 year old lab wear a life vest with the handle on top that allows us to help him out a little. Our lab is about 70 pounds.

I wish I could wrap our retriever in duct tape to contain the shedding fur that my wife gripes about.

It's a Yorkie and should grow to no more than six pounds or so so getting it into a dingy should not be a problem. She plans to train it to use pads so we won't have to take it to shore to do its business.

We shall see.

My neighbor has Yorkies..... they just sit there and bark at nothing when unattended outside.....yip,yip,yip,yip all day long. Vile little dogs that are completely out of control. Just wait until you leave the dog in the boat to go out for dinner...... your neighbors will love you. Good luck with that.

Sorry, I am sure some Yorkies are mellow and well behaved. Just not my experience with the breed.

Ours is ok. Yaps at the door,sometimes at the retriever. Mostly I scowl at her when she gets too wound up and that seems to work, but not a random yapper. Smarter dog than I thought when we first got her and my girls were cooing over her.

You would say that about this little girl?



How could you?

Seriously, we have had Yorkies in the past and that hasn't been our experience. Dogs of all breeds can be a nuisance if not raised and treated right. There's a local crabber who takes his large mutt with him every day and the dog barks constantly.

So my dog problem is finding a PFD (DFD?) to fit her. Right now she weighs about 1 1/2 lb but she should be around 5 lb full grown.

Limit myself to stuffed animals as I can't be a good "parent" to a live animal, being away from home frequently.

You're quite right Ron, the problem is never the dog. Responsible dog owners know how much interaction, socialization, and exercise they require daily. My mom owns a Yorkie that never barks annoyingly, even when left alone at home.

I appreciate folks like Mark that understand absentee lifestyles are not conducive with being a pet owner.

Sorry to disagree. We have two Yorkies, a 4 lb and a 14 lb ( yes,a big boy, all Yorkie.) Both have been raised on the boat as we are liveaboards, don't bark unless someone comes on our boat -- good guard dogs. Never have to take them to shore if we are anchored. It's about training. My pups may not be the best trained but they aren't yippers--- and they don't bark when we leave.

And Cody loves to ride in the dinghy.....a good boat puppy.

Ron, our little girl is 4 lbs and full grown. When we got her she was 1-1/2 lbs. Check out Outward Hound http://www.petsmart.com/product/inde...ductId=2753838, Size XXS. It worked for Cailee when she was so tiny.

Our micro monster. Strangely enough, she only barks a little. She's grown now. Not quite as puppy-ish. But good for a small dog. Learned her dog manners from the retriever.
