Best adapted pet

Our 10 year old Pomeranian, "Barnabus" has been a great dog on the boat since he was a pup. We keep him with a "Lion cut" so shedding has never been an issue. He needs a good walk every 12 hours so that works well for us. His dock manners are tolerable when someone walks by. He has always been calm and in his his element when cruising. He is a bit heavy for a Pom.
"Bristol" is our 3 year old schnauzer. He is "boat broken" also, but doesn't have the ability to hold it for as long as his brother. He does great at the dock, but is always a bit nervous when underway.
"Israel" is still young and fearless and does not seem to be bothered at all by the boat noises while we are cruising.

RE: Best adapted pet

Is dog hair somehow poisonous now? Sheesh y'all, bunch-o-wimps that can't deal with a little (or a lot) of hair in every corner of your world. I'll never understand the obsession of people that want dogs, but are scared of loose dog hair. ;-)

RE: Best adapted pet

In our case the non-shedding was a necessity. We didn't have a dog for our first 40 years of marriage because my wife is extremely allergic to animals. However, there is a down side - Merlin sees the groomer every 6 weeks or so at the rate of $60/clip.

Love that Senator - used to have one...shown here at Bath.

RE: Best adapted pet

Luna is a live-aboard shih-tzu/poodle. No shedding (the Admiral and I both have allergies), goes on a potty pad (handy when anchored out), only weighs 10 pounds (easy on/off to the dock or dinghy) and shih-tzu's are not "water dogs" (I don't have to worry about her wanting to jump into the water.

Luna's a great traveler. Before becoming full time cruisers, she made 2 trips from Chicago to Oregon on my Honda Goldwing motorcycle and we did an Iron Butt Run (1100 miles in 21 hours).

Mostly, she hates to be left behind. . .

Wonderful animals.

Longcours62: Not to hijack the thread here, but can you say something about your boat. From the angle of the avitar, it looks like a Wellington. Nice.

I have a new boat pet. Great pet. I don't have to feed it. It is around all the time. I do have to clean up after it once in a while.

We looked at Schipperke's for years... always had German Shepard's and Labs. When the last lab really started to slow we got a Schipperke and have not regretted it a bit... their a natural boat dog... absolute watch dog.. spends all day lurking under the tender when it's on the davits or on the highest location on the boat so she can keep track of the anchorage... and she doubles as a great autopilot.

Is a big problem, our female weight around 136 pounds...
And we don(t take airplane any more .it 's close a lot of doors to us.
We make the design of our transom ...for give the dog a good access to the tender but for example on a life raft with 'claw' of 3 cm long....
Or in case of evacuation by helicopter or alongside a merchand ship it could be a problem (we already prepare a big net for her but)
For lift her from the water it is also not easy.
As a guard a small one could be (a lot ) more noizy like a yorkshire.
And just the sound of a big one on tape in case of intruder
We like our she is calm on day, and at night she became a very different dog
The principal, i think it is an adequation betwen the dog size and the boat size it is good if the dog could run around the boat.
I saw newfouland on 33 feet boat (nauticat 33)with no space at all on the deck it is not a god choice.

Longcours62, What breed is your magnificent dog? She looks big enough to pull a barge, and appears to be walking along a canal towpath. BruceK

a "Leonberg" generaly very friendly dog, calm, good swimmer ('hands' like newfouland' but hair less watertight)
She is a standart size for a female 62 kgs and 75 cm on the back , but if you have big boat the male is more impressive is father : 82 kgs and 84 cm and a 'boy friend' 87 cm with head lot bigger.And also frequendly more dark
My wife said : 'it is normal girls are alway more elegant '
Photo of head of the friend and our puppy with is dad
You are right , unfortunatly for familial reason ,since 2010 we stay on canals
