Considering I have a dog, I found this article interesting as it contained many points I would never have thought of to make her more comfortable in a canoe. The tips seem like they make sense, but I know my dog wouldn't listen, and would probably tip the canoe anyways. It really is a matter of opinion and experience as to how well these tips actually work. Maybe one day I'll get to test them out!
Overall, this article bring to the table new points of view to allow you to better share your summer fun with your dog!
