SeaFox, Boko, (others)

How do you do it?? We have a 90 lb shepherd and have been wracking our brains trying to think of a way to get him onboard from the dinghy and back again (especially when the water is rough). Do your dogs jump up and down from the dink? Do you have a ramp? Use a lift? How do you protect the tubes from claw punctures?

Glad to see it can be done, as we couldn't leave ours behind, and it is getting closer to the time we will be cruising full time.

When I put cooper onto "idler" I just hold the dingy hard against the hull and say "paws up"....he then stands up and hooks his front paws over the gunnels. I then complete the move with a hand and knee under his bum. Works well and is the same way l get him onto my ute.

I have thrown him in the dingy before. Have also tried lowering him in with a rope. He can jump into the cockpit if Paula calls him and I give him a boost push from behind.
I spent a year lifting him from the jetty into and off the boat. Then one day he got excited and jumped on by himself. I have never lifted him since. He can jump on and off real easy.

One night before he knew how to do it himself I had had a few :cubalibre and when I lifted him off I misjudged and he ended up in the drink

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.

Thanks folks,
Looks like we start with front paws up and boost the posterior until he starts jumping in/out of the dink on his own.
Anyone do anything special to protect the tubes from claws??

Get the right glue, or try a "cove molding adhesive" or urethane adhesive, or large strips of adhesive velcro, and put some astroturf over the tubing to protect it. That should give 'em a better grip, too.

My RIB is old and beat up, I bought it that way; so I am not too concerned about that aspect. Between it being ugly, and my crew, I don't think anybody is going to steal it. That said, I have witnessed no Claw damage to my tender. I have done more damage to it hanging off the stern davits!!!! It is an Avon 310 Rover
