Your dog should have its spot where it feels comfortable and safe inside your boat. Place a non-slip rug or mat wrapped in a bath towel on the deck. Lots of goodies will assist your dog in understanding that it has its territory. If you rehearse “stationing behavior” on land, you may transfer the same indications to the boat.

When sailing with your dog, safety should always come first. Tiny dogs are more likely to be tossed off a boat in stormy waters.

Even if your pet dog enjoys swimming, it is good to put it in a life jacket. You will know if the life jacket perfectly fits if your two fingers fit under the strap. Put your dog in the life jacket right away when you get in the boat. If your pet goes overboard, leaps off the vessel unexpectedly, or is involved in an accident, your pet is already safe.

You should also bring a floating leash, primarily if your pet does not have a strong stay or recall. A floating leash does not get entangled in something beneath the water's surface or a boat propeller, and it is also easier to grip onto if necessary.

Keep your dog hydrated by having fresh water available, and if it has a pink nose and bald ear tips, put on some dog-specific sunscreen.

Make sure that your pet’s preventatives and vaccines are up to date before outdoor excursions. Call your animal medical center Omaha, NE for information.
