A friend buys a piece of sod for the stern of his boat and the dog goes on it. Astro turf works as well. Say to the dog it''s time to go for a walk and in about 3 to 4 days he understands its time to go. Besides they are great for telling you if someone is boarding that shouldn''t be.

Check out this web site. This couple are experts at sailing with dogs. They even write articles for magazines now about the pets onboard experience.

We sail with a schnauzer. He''s 8 now. We started him when he was 6 months old. We plan to leave for some long term cruising in the fall. What''s your question?

Just finished first cruise with Zak 5 yr old standard Poodle.
Getting him to go while anchored out was a bit of a trial. Eventually he peed and pooped though he held it in longer than I would have believed possible. Used a plastic tray from Home Depot designed for under washing machines as a pee box.
The plank aprox 5 foot long 16 inches wide was critical for getting him on and off and up an down below.
He is not afraid of much - but he does not like rough seas at all. Will use tranquilizers (mild) next trip.
good luck
