Zoey – Yellow Labrador (dog)
Name: Jeff and Sandy Raine
Boat name: Andiamo
Boat model: Nordhavn 60
Years cruising with pet: Five
Unexpected/unanticipated difficulties: For our awkward dog, some docks are more difficult to maneuver (off and onto) than a human would think. Sometimes bribery is required!
Worst thing about traveling with pets: Going ashore quickly - is the very first thing we do, every morning we are anchored out, we just get up and go!
Best thing about traveling with pets: She is a great walking companion when ashore and she is a conversation starter with other 'dog' people.
Advice: Pets need a safe and secure place to be - when things get hectic aboard. We loop a leash under a Nordhavn chair - she's not going anywhere!
