Maizey is still learning the boat. Engine start-up is a scary time but she loves all the attention from everyone in the marina. Hanging out in the cockpit is the best though with all the ducks to guard against!

We've been our Trawler about two weeks now. Patrick, our golden retriever came from 4 acres in TX to 42x14'.

He is really adjusting well!Click image for larger version

Does anyone boat with a Cockapoo? We are dog-less until I retire, but I want a dog with webbed feet.

I thought almost all dogs had webbed feet. I've had and known lots of dogs in my life, never knew one without webbed toes.

Okay, this might start out sounding way off topic and a little...unusual, but...

Our gun dog, a weimaraner, was deadly afraid of champagne corks popping. As soon as a bottle would come out of the fridge she would disappear. So I devised a plan. I would take out the bottle, make sure she saw, then coax her back. I'd make her sit, if she got up I'd get her back and calmly start over. I'd also make sure she saw her favorite treats out and ready to go.

While distracting with eminent treats I'd pop the cork and immediately hand over a treat.

After a few bottles of practice, she now is immediately under foot before I have put the bottle on the counter.

I think something like this could help your dog with the start up process.

Now that the price of diesel has come down some, I bought a bottle of champagne. I popped the cork and the Poodle took off like a shot and immediately returned with a tray of canapés. The Chihuahua, not to be out done, also took off and returned with a dish of guacamole.

tegdesign: we will definitely try something along those lines. Maizey is scared of a lot of things but with time she has been able to adjust. I think it's just the new situation but we will definitely use treats to help her along.

Our dog Maggie is very involved in our boating life. I need to get some of that railing safety netting to go around the boat though.

On the Saturday between Good Friday and Easter we lost our little Peanut, the sweetest, most beautiful dog who ever lived. We'll have other dogs in life, but never like that one - she was a once in a lifetime dog. That'll do girl, that'll do.

Peanut is a beauty... what a nice dog. That'll do, but we always want more don't we?

I'm sad for your loss.

We have a small rescue dog. He's never been on a boat, but we've gotten him on our Island Gypsy wearing his life jacket. How do we keep him from falling or jumping off the boat when we dock or have to open the starboard door?

JB, crate training has always been part of our rehabilitation program for dogs as it has positive benefits for reducing stress in them if they ever need to spend time at the vet. Crates take limited room and can be effective for dogs not used to boating when close in maneuvers demand your undivided attention.

It's funny, they all have such individual personalities. Peanut was a very delicate, graceful, peaceful little dog - who didn't like to get wet unless absolutely necessary - and so it never crossed our mind that Peanut would jump off. In fact, one warm summer night back when we only had a cheap inflatable kayak for a dingy, my wife and I swam it all the way to shore towing Peanut in the dingy like Cleopatra on a barge on the Nile. Our new puppy though - a lab mix - has already jumped into the koi pond waterfall out back and so any discussion of boat training for dogs (not jumping off I mean) would be helpful.

Hello Jillbrown... For my Skipper, I either leave her in the pilothouse seat or on the table in front of the wheel. She cannot jump off either -- too high. Also, I have up netting over the pilothouse doors. She has jumped up the step, across the side deck and fallen overboard. Believe me, she is not her most attractive when wet.

Net:


Skipper does chase fish and has launched herself at them. When in the dink I either leash her or keep her close to me so she won't try to catch something underwater.

The net came from Defender's and is the stuff sailboats use to keep their gear on deck. It's not expensive.

Dogs and Trawlers

Hard to imagine travelling without our dog Caber who is not happy unless he is up on the flybridge with me at all times. Can't let one of the pack stray without supervision.

Do All Dogs Have Webbed Feet?
