If you love to go out on the water on your sailboat, you can take your companion with you for a beautiful, peaceful day. Many avid boaters have dogs that join them on the boat. Dogs provide great company and also have an enjoyable time with their owners. Before you embark on a sailing adventure with your canine, be sure your dog knows the commands of obedience. Commands such as "sit," "stay," and "come" are crucial. Boating safety is a top priority, and your pup must know how to behave and listen to you when on the boat. Also, be sure your furry friend always wears a floatation device! A safe day is a fun day!
If your companion is accustomed to being in the water, a break may be necessary. Your furry friend may enjoy some time in an open field or very large fenced field running free! This is a different way to get much-needed exercise!
If you have a shallow river or wading area near you, you and your dog can still enjoy the water. Take your water-lover out in it and bring that special toy. Have fun playing fetch!
