Re: Who sails with their Golden Retriever

I bring my German Shepherd with us for day sails periodically. Bring a bowl and lots of cold water. Hose the dog down at the slip with cold water before boarding and upon your return so the dog is cooler. Pour cold water on the dog if he or she appears too warm. Keep the bimini up so the dog can sit in the shade. Although I have an Outward Hound life preserver for my GSD, he does not wear it in the warmer months. We attach his nylon harness with a nylon lead to the steering pedestal to keep him from falling overboard.
