We sail with our dog all the time
We have a Aussie Cattle dog mix that we take all the time. Here are some pics on our boat and a friends boat.
I highly recommend getting a life jacket. A good one with more then just the straps on the bottom. If the dog goes over, then the handle on the top is a big help in getting them back on board.
Plus, when you attach a leash (like you did in the photo) you can attach it to the jacket and not the collar. That way you don't strangle the dog if it goes over.
“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn't do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.” -Mark Twain
