Re: Dog on board
Pretty well all the dog-owning sailors we know who bring the dog along do the shore thing twice a day, and most dogs seem OK with that. In fact, they seem to get into the routine to the point that they can't or won't perform 'off schedule'.. like getting up at 4 am to catch slack at some rapids, even taken ashore it's 'sorry, boss, but it's not time!"
