LIVING ABOARD WITH DOGS

THESE ARE OUR DOGS                                           WE LIVE ABOARD                                     THERE ARE 8 OF THEM                                          OUR 42 FT TRAWLER

WITH ALL THESE GUYS

I HAVE THEM CAT LITTER TRAINED. I BOUGHT TWO CEMENT PANS FROM HOME DEPOT AND CUT TWO HOLES UNDER THE SETTEES INTO THE MAIN SALON DECK  JUST THE RIGHT SIZE SO THAT THE LIPS OF THE PANS WOULD HANG ON THE MAIN SALON SOLE. THIS LEAVES JUST ENOUGH ROOM FOR THEM TO DO THEIR STUFF. I KEEP THEM CLEANED BY EMPTYING THEM TWICE A DAY. I  PUT A DOOGY PAD UNDER THEM SO THAT THEY HANG OUT ABOUT A FOOT IN CASE A DOG DECIDES NOT TO GO ALL THE WAY IN OR PEES OVER THE EDGE. I ALSO USE POWEDERED DEODORANT AND BACKING SODA TO KEEP EVERY THING FRESH. THIS WORKS OUT PRETTY GOOD FOR ME. THEY HAVE A GRASS MAT ON THE AFT DECK ALSO. SO WE CAN GO AT LEAST SEVERAL DAYS WITHOUT GOING TO SHORE.  THEY DO GET TO GO ASHORE BY DINGY IF THERE ARE ANY SPOTS THAT ARE DOG FRIENDLY.
