Default Travelling With Animals

Hi all,

I am after some opinions from people who do or have travelled with animals.

We have just lost our dog of 11 years to cancer and before considering another animal we wanted to know what dramas cruisers had with animals and the authorities.

Cheers

Rob & Annette

If you're getting a dog be careful what breed you consider. Some dogs are quite mellow but others (working/sport dogs) are full of energy genetically and will turn destructive without a healthy outlet like being able to run 3-5 miles a day. If you do a Google search for "dog personality types breed" or something to that effect I'm sure you can find a wealth of information. It's important to find a dog who matches your personality AND lifstyle

Get a cat. Much more useful on board for keeping the rodents down than a dog.

Having said that, some dog owning boaties I know of swear by shi-tsus and Jack Russell terriers.

i have a lhasa apso and have discovered he hates water. maybe in Tibet they were taught not to get wet? now he will go down the dock to the boat and get in the boat but soon wants to go ashore. another small challenge in the process of going cruising.

Probably the dog that over time was bred to be comfortable and agile on a boat is the Schipperke, the Belgian Barge Dog.

Here is a link with some of the history :-
