Dogs and Boats

We are the owners of a 35'' sailboat that we sail out of Newport, RI and Sag Harbor, NY. We are considering the "adoption" of a dog. Can anyone offer any advice as to which breeds are good/bad on boats and how one gets dogs used to the heeling motion, etc. Any general or specific advice would be most appreciated.

! PERFECT dog for a couple living aboard. He has excellent bladder control, will fiercely protect your vessel when in port and will not wander away. He rarely barks, and when he does, it deems investigation. Unfortunately, he does not appreciate the company of children...or less-than- friendly strangers.

We adore him. He has been a trustworthy protector and delightful companion for our family. Unfortunately, a significant change in lifestyle warrants the necessity to find Studley a PERFECT home. We are offering him at no charge and will arrange for his transportation to a new home.

I saw this message on another site. I have a schipperke as well and she is wonderful on my Hinckley 49 ft center cockpit sailboat. I think the second part of the message got posted before the first. sorry.

"....09/01/01: Schipperke - Needs seagoing vessel to Capt.
Posted by: OurLove4Boating@cs.com (Sandie Illes)


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

"Studley" is a 6 yo male Schipperke who LOVES boating. He is sturdy and healthy. Very handsome. He is the perfect loveable "lap-dog" and a dependable, loyal watch-dog. He is obedient, happy and carefree. He does not demand attention and appreciates silent company or exhausting rough housing... whatever the mood may be for his Capt.! ..."

Nothing over a medium sized dog. This is about the only place where I would even think of an ankle biter for a boat.
But Water dogs are good also. You could have them tow your boat when there is no wind.

The dog's personality has a lot to do with selection. Check out Nate on our trip to the Bahamas last year. He is a young Australian Shepherd. He was calm and laid back on the boat, and a wild man when he had the chance to play ashore.

We really enjoyed having him with us. He was great about using his pup head. Other dog owners were envious because many of them had to plan their days run based on places to take the dog ashore.
