Re: Who sails with their Golden Retriever

We sail with our 85 pound Golden. In the spring and summer we keep her hair clipped to about 1/2 to 3/4 inches. Short hair makes a big difference in the heat. She started out in a Cape Dory 26 and now enjoys her IP 350. In hot weather she stays below with fans on. When temperatures are predicted above 90, we sail early and get her back to the slip early and AC comfort. In fair weather she stays in the cockpit with a tether on. We have a 7 foot ramp to get her from cockpit to cabin and back again. We need a finger peer or dock to get her off the boat. She always has water available
