Trim their nails? Hasn't been a problem with our Border Collie.
Better not let any skis or boards on the boat either. Those fins are murder on the interior! :uglyhamme

Rod's idea is a good one. :uglyhamme

Alot of TMC members have dogs and take them on their boats. I don't think I have heard of one instance where the dog caused damage to the interior.

Show her this picture and think of how much fun it is to watch you dog jump off the platform to retrieve a toy...or leaf...or stick...you get the idea. :)

Its a hell of a lot easier to beat the crap out of someone who cuts your vinyl with a fin then it would be to beat the crap out of a dog that loves the water.

How did you damage it? I am finding a lot of nicks on our cushions and I realized they are from the fiberglass moldings of the storage areas.

Getting back in the boat after a ride. I flipped my Sky Ski so it was seat down & went to slide it forward off the seat to the floor. The Shrader valve for the shock punched a hold in the front edge of the cushion.
Bet thats not the answer you expected. :D

I had one fixed on the engine cover a few yrs ago. It was a wakeboard edge, sliced it open sliding the board up front to put in the bow.

We let the two weimaraners in the boats ... but only based on the majority rules principle (my vote is outnumbered) but they have to sit on a towel or on the floor.

I plan on bringing my Giant Schnauzer on the boat. I was curious if gel coat scratches were a problem?

I'm mainly worried about a missed jump from the platform to the top of the boat. (i.e., She almost makes the leap, but ends up clawing away with her back legs in an attempt to pull herself up).

Any issues like that?

I take her in my truck all the time with no problems with her tearing the seats with her claws.

Traxx it (http://www.airjunky.com/traxxed/) & let her scratch it all she wants. :D

Or you could try the clear paint protection film (http://products3.3m.com/catalog/us/en001/auto_marine_aero/automotive_aftermarket/node_GSWSTWG6S9be/root_GST1T4S9TCgv/vroot_GSLPLPKL4Xge/gvel_PKD7VS0CHGgl/theme_us_aad_3_0/command_AbcPageHandler/output_html) like something offered by 3M and put it between the rub rail and sun deck on the transom ... our dogs like the boat but don't like to swim, so its not a problem:)

I am considering putting some on the nose as the grey material (by the boat buddy) is abrasive on the gel coat and I don't like to do the towel thing.

Thanx for the link - I've considered adding some of that to the transom to keep ski scratches to a min. Anyone use it? Do you think it would pull stickers off?

EDIT: never mind. "The application is meant to be permanent". Not exactly what I had in mind...

I use the Dyson vacuum cleaner, works great, the roller sticky tape works good also. But the instant she come back aboard there is hair everywhere.

And they are great fun to swim with, just be sure to put both arms under their belly and they will just rest in the water.

If she is that worried, laydown some towels. Having a dog on the boat is like having the dog in the house, kind of makes everything right.

I have never taken either of my dogs on the water, The are pretty much surrounded by it here in Florida and they just hate getting wet. But I still love them.

I read somewhere that if you knew everywhere your dogs bare butt has been you would sell your house :D

Hear's a pic of our new nutjob Norrie. She was terrified of anything with a engine but is learnig quickly that things with engines are fun. I do worry about the nails on the seats though.

My dog is allowed only on the dock and in the rowboat and canoe. She is strickly forbidden in the Mastercraft but I did catch her in it a few time while it was docked and we were not there. :wavey:
The seats are way to confy vs the wooden deck... :uglyhamme

If you are worried about scratches you could always get those leather socks you can put on hunting dogs for rough terrain. the would keep the toe nails under control

Just got a Border Collie the day after Christmas so this summer will be my first experience with letting him in the MasterCraft, going to give it a try and see how he does. He seems to like the water. I am a little worried about the nail on the seats, but he seems to do okay on the leather in my truck so it should be fine. He is such a member of the family he goes almost anywhere we go so I couldn't imagine leaving him home while the rest of us are out. Besides then he would spend over half of his summer lock in a kennel, I just couldn't do that. Swimming is good exercise for him too.

Our dogs love to boat so not taking them was out of the question. I had a local upholstery shop make a snap on carpet that matches the factory carpet to protect the dogs’ nails from damaging the seats. It also gives them extra traction while jumping from the platform into the boat. They know from training that they are only allowed where the carpet is placed.

Great dog, JLF. Mine is a little over a year old & learns better than any of my other dogs have. He'll give me five, heel for blocks, sit, stay (play hide & go seek), speak, catches anything, etc. Frankly I'm falling behind & need to teach him more but haven't thought of any more tricks. I need to get a frisbee out & start working with him for this summer.
The funniest thing is when there are new people on the boat with us. I'll be sitting on the swimstep getting in my ski & say, "Jesse, high five" & he'll run to the back of the boat & slap five with me then I slide off the back for a run.
Keep his nails trimmed & you won't have any problems.

Nice to hear, we have taught ours almost all the same tricks already and we play frisbee almost non stop even in the house. We are working on roll over. We do shake, high five, hide and seek, fetch, sit pretty, I am working on teaching him to pick up his own toys and putting them back in his toy basket, roll over and we are working on teaching him to get his own ice out of the ice maker on the fridge. We are hoping to get him trained pretty well so he can behave on the boat this summer. Couldn't imagine leaving him home.
