With her being the size she is (60 lbs) it can be a hassle sometimes to get her on and off the boat, but she always has her PDF on with a handle on the back that makes moving her around much easier. We hope she'll like traveling with us, but we've also decided that if we get out of the Erie Canal and she's not having a good time then we'll rent a car and take her to my mother-in-law's house. We would miss her terribly, but it would also mean that we could expand our destination. Possibly Australia or maybe even all the way around.

|LakeSuperiorGeezer||My dogs will pee on command when I take them for a walk. Training was easy, when they start squat, say Go Pee. Althoug I have not tried it, you could also hold a treat and and give the command and then give it to them afterwards. From there it seems the next step of going on a mat would be easy.|

FYI, there is a 30' boat here in the anchorage with 4 dogs, 2 couples and 1 small child.

If you haven't already done so, get her very used to getting in and out of the dinghy. We had a small dog (6 pounds), which was easy -- we just handed her down -- but had friends with bigger dogs that definitely had a harder time, particularly in a rolly anchorage.
That said, taking a dog is wonder IF they're enjoying it. Ours loved it!

|Serendipitous||I'm probably leaning more toward making her a set on my own. We tried to buy commercial ones a few years ago, and since greyhound's paws are smaller than most breeds her size but longer than smaller breeds we could not find any that fit her decently and had to return them. I haven't checked out all the materials yet, but what I have in mind is a body of cotton or nylon with some gel type padding on the bottom covered in an anti-skid material. Who knows what I'll be able to find or what will work, but I should probably start on some prototypes soon.|
