Raindance is on a distinguished road

Our worst weather was crossing the Gulf Stream, which was just terrible. We brought tranquilizers that our vet gave us, so the dogs were groggy/sleeping during the crossing. Other than that, the only sense of stress that we picked up from them was just like at home - they were only unhappy when they weren''t near us. When they were above, no matter what the weather, they had nylon harnesses on. In bad weather, they were attached to the boat just like we were. You will have a great time on your cruise, and so will your dogs - just be carefull with them in bear country. If they wander ahead of you and a bear chases them, they will bring the bear straight to YOU!
