We have a Bishon Frise that loves boat rides. No girl can resist touching him. Even Grandpa gets the babes to stop and chat when they go for a walk near the beach.

For those out there with the larger hunting type dogs, Gander Mountain offers rubber soaled dog boots. I used to put socks on mine, but they are a little shacky on the vinyl. The boots give them grip and save your interior.

My main "boating" dog is a timberwolf hybrid, love to swim but hates ducks unless she catches one for lunch!! Pulls me around the pond in the kids 10' pond boat during the summer!!Wolves are a great breed if treated right, she is 5 years old and loves to play with the Pugs but don't take any B/S off of anybody that does'nt belong on the property!!!

We have a Jack as well- loves to go boating, the beach, you name it. He goes nuts the minute I get the truck out of the shop to hook up the boat trailer.

I’ve got a 130 lb. German Shepherd Dog. Great dog but I don’t think he likes the boat or the marina. Other than being impatient, he is just to unsure of his footing on things that float. He squats down low and grips whatever he is standing on like a cat (carpet, catwalk, vinyl, etc.).

The mistake we made was not taking him out (on the boat) when he was younger.
