JohnnyC, sorry to delay getting back to you. My Little Girl, the one in the picture and now weights 110 LBS, Jumps from the boat to the RIB
& Back; she is 3 1/2 yo. My male(120 LBS), is 5 1/2 YO can jump and on occasion will, but mostly I pat the gunnel, he puts his front paws on them, and I boost the back end. On another thread, I listed My secret in who is training who. My Boat is a Gozzard, part of the transom opens down to form a water
level swim platform/Boarding ladder. Both Dogs and any visitors can just step from the RIB
to the boat on boarding, and vice versa when leaving. They both love to ride in the Rib, I think they may be power boaters at heart. Overall they are just happy to be with me, which is a lot more than I can say about some women in my life.
