braidmike is on a distinguished road
We have a little mutt on board (liveaboards). She has her PFD that is on whenever we sail. Someone once told us, and we followed the advice, the dog is not allowed to get on or off the boat on her own. She is trained to wait even if the dock is only 6" away (and we have a low deck, it would be easy). Not sure if that has kept her from going in the drink, but so far so good. FWIW
