Simple Safety Tips for Boating with Pets

Do you enjoy a day on the water with your four legged friend? On our Boating Pets site you’ll find information on how to have a safe, fun day out on the water with your pets. You can read articles, shop for life jackets and other products, learn about water rescue programs for dogs.

Key Takeaways:

  • Many pet stores carry pet life jackets, and options with a handle on the back can help make it easier to grab your pet out of the water and get him back on the boat.
  • Pets can be apprehensive in new spaces, and boats are no exception. While introducing your pet to the boat, give them their own small space that is safe and out of the way.
  • This can provide them a space where they feel comfortable and have an area to call their own until they become more familiar with the boat along with all of its new sights, smells, and sounds.
