Re: Who sails with their Golden Retriever
Some dogs will do better than others onboard and while some breeds may have a better temperament for boats, there are no guarantees on an individual basis. I know some labs love being on boats -- mine does not. We've had her on a powerboat and she was a nervous wreck from the movement of the boat. I won't take her on the sailboat, which means she stays home with the neighbor dog sitter when we head out. I wouldn't specifically get a dog as a sailing companion. It's not really an ideal situation for a dog.
And GoldenDoodle is just another name for mutt.
