CRUISING WITH DOGS
What great information! I think that the "Sue & Larry" article called Cruising with Canines is also very informative. I sail with my Shih-Tzu/Poodle cross. He always wears a life jacket when we cross the Georgia Straight (between Vancouver & Vancouver Island) or at least a harness when we are day sailing. When we first started taking Ralphie sailing, I gave him a Bach Flower remedy called "Rescue Remedy". You can find it at any health food store or holistic medicine clinic. Just a few drops in the mouth of the pet (or under your own tongue) will relax and calm them (or you) drug-free. See a photo of my dog''s life jacket on my personal page - rubzow. I bought the jacket from an outfit called Ruffwear in Oregon. Their website is www.ruffwear.com. In Canada, you can order the jacket from www.canineequipment.com.
