Portuguese Water Dogs rode in bobbing fishing trawlers as they worked their way from the warm Atlantic waters of Portugal to the frigid fishing waters off the coast of Iceland where the fleets caught cod to bring home.
Portuguese Water Dogs were often taken with sailors during the Portuguese discoveries."

I have a 38kg German Shepherd.
The design of the boat will be assessed with her ability to move safely around the boat.
She's been throguh some tough times with me when she the only one there so i reckon shje should also share in the good times as well.
In fact I might even name the boat psychobitch in her honour!
But that may confuse the wife.

|jwreck||I had a girlfriend with a pug once. Damn dog was sweet, but a nightmare to deal with. Had to eat a special food or her hair would fall out. Constantly getting respiratory infections. Very smart though.|

I feel the need to warn you of other consequences of dogs living on boats...
Because our mutt can't climb the companion way stairs, we now have a doggie door (a recycled 8" Lewmar hatch) to allow access from the quarter berth to the cockpit.
Because the jump from the floor to the quarter berth was a little bit high, we now have a custom shelf/step.
Because my tool shelf under the table feels like a dark den, my tools must find another home.
I could go on, but you get the idea.

A properly trained dog will not jump in the water; however, our dog, Zorro, was once missing in 2003 and we had to backtrack our course for two miles to find him.
Zorro does pee off the stern on command.....
Schipperke's excel as boat dogs. He also barks at other boats in the fog that we can only see on radar.
Zorro see's you, Aythya crew

It was amazing how many pugs I started noticing after the movie 'Men in Black' came out.
That movie made a believer out of me in the pug personality cult. Then again I have always liked dogs and have come to appreciate how varied feline personalities can be.
