Boat dogs make great crew. I’m surprised every boat doesn’t have one.
Life on a Boat
What it’s really like living on a boat with a dog.
I love living on my boat with my dog. Except when I don’t. Here are 9 reasons you should not live on a boat with your dog.
Let’s face it. Dogs are creatures of habit. They love their homes. But what if their home is a boat on the hard? How do you keep the dog happy when your house disappears?
Here’s Honey coming back to our sailboat, “Meander” in February 2017.
The best boat people never rush. They’re always in control. They don’t create drama. That’s why my dog Honey loves them. Because Honey Dog don’t do drama.
First you get the look. Then the whine. Ignore her long enough and you get the bark. It’s time to take the dog for a walk. But how do you get a big dog off the boat at anchor?
What question are we asked most often about living with a big dog on a small sailboat? It’s “does Honey go potty on the boat?”. We’re working on it. But it isn’t easy. I’m starting to wonder if it’s just harder to get a big dog to “go” on a boat. Here’s why.

Yesterday I posted this picture of my husband’s latest boat project. It will make life easier for us and harder for Honey. Did you guess what it is?
Lately Honey has become a better problem solver. Is my dog getting smarter?
