Take Your Dogs Cruising
 
After retiring early two years ago for a life of cruising, we''ve met many cruisers who''ve left their four-legged crewmembers behind because they were unsure of how they''d adapt to life aboard.

We''ve now sailed over 11,000 miles with our two Golden Retrievers, Max & Bailey, and couldn''t be happier about our decision to bring them along. We know it''s all been worthwhile when we see the pain in the eyes of other cruiser''s who''ve left their dogs behind as they stop by for their ''fur fix.''

If you''re contemplating a life of cruising with your dog, perhaps our experiences can help you. We''ve documented all our travels and experiences with our dogs on our website at http://www.SailCharbonneau.com. Whether preparing yourselves, your boat, or your pets, we hope this information will help. And, no -- we''re not trying to sell anything :-)

Enjoy your cruise -- and take Fido along for the ride.

All our best,

Blaine, Janet, Max & Bailey Parks

Thanks guys for the positive post! I sail with 2 dogs myself, but on a much smaller level. 2 Jack Russels! Fantastic boat dogs (easy to bath in the shower) I am looking to crew in the Carib. this winter & am hoping I will have good luck with a boat that really appreciates the worth of a dog out on the high seas!
A fellow canine lover!
