- The general well being of the pet and the added hassle of it's health.
I think most dog breeds will not be suited to a cruising lifestyle. Living aboard dockside, sure. Really cruising, I have my doubts. Most breeds, big and small, need to run and play and exercise on a daily basis
, especially when young. I can't speak from personal experience of cruising with a dog, but as a dog owner I just don't think it would be fair to the dog in most circumstances.
