Uh, what exactly is a "pup head"?

A pup head is a plastic tray with a grate for drainage covered with an astroturf type carpet that is scented to be attractive to canines.

Mojopet - Pup-Head Portable Dog Potty

I drilled holes in the tray to allow me to secure the components together and to secure them to the boat.

After use, I would just dunk it overboard for a rinse. Occasionally, I would wash the carpet in soapy water in the bucket.

It was expensive, but saved us a lot of trouble during our 7 month trip.

We had friends with an Airdale. When he was a pup he was acting like he'd been bad (dog owners know this body language) and Gary found a pile of doo about as far forward as possible; at the base of the sprit on a schooner with a flying jib. He was delighted as this was easy to tip off and was well away from most activity. Gary even provided a bit of plastic grass carpet up there for Dudley.

For all the rest of his life Dudley would hang his head and go forward and then mope back no matter how he was praised.

Our Jake (Kerry Blue Terrier) looks up and whimpers and I would pull out the helm-seat and open the transom for him. He'd stay at the upper end and not drop onto the swim platform - can't ask too much - and then I'd use the shower hose as a washdown. Worked well. I don't know how he'll adapt as an older dog having to learn new tricks on our Pearson with the solid transom.

Thanks for that explanation, Herb. Interesting product.

What a day.

First we find out that despite our best efforts we don't call them cylones we call them typhoons (see the trivia thread) and now I find we have a breed of dog called an Australian Shepherd.

I've never heard of the bloody things but apparently, yes, they do exist and they originated, now get this, in America.

Well I'll be buggered by a cricket , sorry, baseball bat.

TDW-

The baseball bat is probably a better choice, I think it is narrower. My sister-in-law has a Australian Sheperd IIRC. Cute dog, named Issac.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
