Dog with Dinghy-Crane on board?

My son visited us on board but with a golden labrador, weight about 30 Kilo. How do I get to the crane for the dog aft balcony?

There is a thread a year or so back, search "getting the dog back on board" or something like that.

I have used the mast/boom to lift many heavy things on to the boat. The mast boom is what I would use for man over board as our swim deck is about 2 ft off the water.

You could build stairs/ramp from the dock to the pilot house level. I built steps so we can enter through the pilot house as its to dangerous in the winter form the swim deck with a side tie.

Of course the easiest way is have you son put the dog over his shoulder.

This is a harness which is made for lifting, it may be dangerous to lift the dog with a crane? If he gets scared maybe he will struggle and hurt himself or twist out of the harness. With this harness two people could lift, one on each handle it may be safer.

As a former K-9 SWAT officer who has repelled many times with a 105lb Shepherd make sure any harness you use is snug and able to support its weight. It is normal for a dog to squirm around a little bit once his paws have left terra firma but a confident dog will regain his composure very quickly once his paws are grounded again, a nervous dog on the other hand will run everytime he hears and or sees the davit starting to operate in the future. If you are unsure if your dog fits the nervous category just think what he does come July 4th if he hides under the table or runs for his crate or kennel when the fire works go off - it's nerves.
Just my 2c worth.

ps Here is Gato enjoying retirement in Key West a couple of years ago on another boat

GWKiwi: It's not often that someone with your depth of experience is available to respond to such questions. I too have animals and I've built a dinghy crane for, shall we say "bodies" overboard. Do the skin-like jackets for dogs really calm them down as advertised, and would it be worthwhile to keep the animal when stressful situations (like unplanned trips overboard) or maybe even getting used to the new confined space?

A dog named GATO! That reminds me of the country song "a boy named Sue''

HH- Our First Dog Mate TiVo was not a nervous dog, but he did not like docking or de-docking. I was moving around too much to follow and he would start getting nervous. And the back and fill thrusting of a single screw maneuvering made him shiver. The Thundershirt stopped that. We would put it on him before going to the pumpout dock and any docking procedures. It may not work for all dogs....but it worked for mine for sure.

Dogs....gotta love em!

Guru I am not familiar with the skin jackets but a post by Besslb says they work for him. Animals are amazing creatures they sense when we are nervous and they can start to get nervous as well, even strong dogs can show unsureness when we are stressed.

A tip I give to dog owners is to think of a dog as your child, in the sense of how you treat it, how you approach new challenges with it, i.e riding in the dingy for the first time, how you feed it, etc. You wouldnt leave your kid in the candy store with a free pass the same with your dog two small meals a day is much better than one big meal or free feeding when ever it wants, which is a no no for many reasons.

Praise is a dogs best reward, when your dog does good things praise him well, never punish out of frustration and bring them towards new challenges in small incrimental steps, finally bringing all those steps together . Go onto Utube and watch how stray dogs were taught to drive cars in New Zealand, it is a great video.

Steve, I like that " a boy named Sue". I guess in Slovakia where he came from "Gato" doesnt mean "cat" but you wouldnt believe how many people who speak spanish that would raise their eyebrows when I said "quiet Gato" when he would bark while we were on a contact.

Unfortunately he passed away suddenly 14 months ago, he was a such a great great dog who we miss everyday. He loved boating and we never had to lock the boats doors yet he was friendly to all people who had no ill will.

Thunder shirts apparently do work well. My dogs don't need it, but my sister in laws dog is helped by it.
