Speaking of Dogs onboard..

Do most Marinas allow Pets ?

Can you call your Wife/Girl friend/Sex slave, a PET
I have a 50lb pooch that will be sailing/Live aboard with me.

Most marinas don't care if you have a well behaved animal including your list above. We are on the hard and several of the owners on any day may bring their dogs. I take our standard poodles and they have a big dog party. Just clean up after your pooch. I also see dogs in dinghys often.

I agree that most marinas are OK with dogs. Most have areas to take your pets to relieve themselves. Do pick up after your dog.

We are spending New Years on our boat with two golden retrievers and a small black dog who thinks she is actually a golden retriever.

We seasonally cruise from Maine to the Bahamas and stop at marinas occassionally and always with our dog on board. It's never come up as a question, but I certainly agree with those responsible dog owners that posted above. I also highly recommend training your dog the produce all his products at a designated place on deck that can be easily rinsed when you're at anchor. It's best to associate this behavior with a command word that you can use to send your dog to that location. When I clap my hands and call out "Lido!", my dog, Zorro, runs to the transom to pee. If my doctor expects me to pee on command; I should be able to expect no less from my dog. Afterall, when Zorro is ashore he can pee on 37 things! 'take care and joy, Aythya crew

I'm gonna try...

I always see dogs around, most people like them. You gotta pick up after them though.
We just got a goldendoodle...my goal is to train him to go on an astro turf, sieve that drains overboard from the bow area. I can't imagine running the dinghy back and forth. Like Ceaser says "be the pack leader"...so I'm staying focused. I would like to take the dog on overnights though so its worth the effort. Otherwise its dog sitters or kennels and I really want him to enjoy the boat.
