Surprised First boating holiday

Post by Jellytot on Mon Aug 25 2014, 19:29

We are taking Ralph on a narrow boat. Can't wait!

As he's not great in the water I'm going to get him a life jacket in case he goes in and also to keep him a bit warm as it's in October that we are going.

I've been researching, and think I'll get the Trixie one as it has a bit of material that covers the tummy. All the other ones seem to just have straps.

Anyone used one before that they can recommend, or does anyone have any advice for our first boating trip with a dog?!

Sorry no help here but we've been meaning to take Suki. She is terrified of the water though so we decided against it. Looking forward to hear how it goes and to any pics

I can't offer any advice but Flo went on a small ferry this week and was absolutely fine. I know it's not quiet the same thing but the water didn't worry her at all.

Lots of pics please Smile
