Dogs on boats.

We have recently bought a Hunter 35.5 and will begin sailing early summer with our 12 year old Cocker Spaniel. She has no idea of what she is in for!! I know that a doggie PFD is a must; does anyone have a recommendation of type?
Also, please submit more info on potty breaks and training the dog to use a mat. At 12, is she too old to learn to use the mat or hold it for 12 hours?? Does the mat get tied down somehow so she can use it whenever she needs to? Do you again tie it down to drag it behind the boat to clean? How? Any info would be appreciated. Thanks.
