On our third boxer and to date haven't taken any out for a ride. Boxers don't do well in water and biggest fear is him being goofy, which they are the best at, and going overboard. You need to first know how your dog is in water, otherwise I have no problem 'em aboard.

Our dog (9lb poodle) wears a life jacket while underway.......Lost him off the back of the boat once during a hole shot. Glad the jacket was on and I saw it happen, otherwise I could have been miles down the lake before I noticed he was missing............

Most boxers don't do we'll in water, that's for sure. But Our male thinks he's a lab and will retrieve anything we throw in the water. Our female could care less about the water and just likes to sit around getting attention. Boxers have practically 0% body fat and will sink if you aren't careful or don't have a life jacket on.

We used to take our old golden every time. He loved the boat. He would even sneak down to the dock, climb in on his and take a nap. Our new golden isn't allowed onboard. He goes ape**** and freaks out. Only retriever I know that doesn't even like to swim

Here's a pic of Oakley's last boat ride....in his favorite spot. We lost him to cancer that winter.

What a beautiful Golden he was. No question at all he owned that spot! They never really leave us do they. If I could get my boxer to sit like that no question he'd be out with us.

After reading all these comments I took my dogs, normally relegated to the pontoon and rowboat, out on the sns today. They thank you all.
