• Keep your dog safe-know where they are all the time. Use a leash if necessary

• Life jackets are necessary as not all dogs are strong swimmers plus conditions like weather and currents can have an adverse effect. It is easier to grab the dog to safety if he has a life jacket on. Give them some time to get used to it so they can swim with it on.

• Keep your first boating times short-just in case the dog suffers from seasickness. You know the expression-“sicker than a dog”!!

• Super important to keep the dog hydrated and protected from the sun.

With a heaping dose of common sense and following the above boating safety tips, you can have awesome adventures with your dog on the water.
