Bringing the hound along

I will soon be searching for a new family dog. Anybody out there with any thoughts on what kind of dog would make a good sailing buddy? We've got a Pearson 303 and sail on the coast of Maine.

We just became parents to a Boykin Spaniel. He is great on the boat so far. The adult size will be 30-38lbs, so not so big. We previously had a chesapeake retriever, 80lbs, I think size is a big livability/boatability issue for me. But, almost any dog is more willing than you to go for a boat ride.

I had a toy poodle on my boat. Gawd, she loved going sailing! Here's a pic of her in the v-berth waiting for breakfast.

We have Mouse Terriers. We like them because they use a litterbox.

We used to take our black lab. He didnt like heeling much and would take up a lot of room in the cockpit. He used to sit on the benches but would slide off when we tacked.

We sailed with our miniature schnauzer (Mexico to Japan). He was great, right sized for our boat and didn't love the water which kept the MOB opportunities to a minimum.

On off-shore trips how, where and on what would your pooches relieve themselves? Siamese mentioned a litter box. What about others. We just coastal cruise so the dog could always go ashore even if that meant going for a swim which he loved.
