Where to find help

ActiveCaptain is an interactive Web-based cruising guide with content generated by a network of boaters worldwide. Besides the standard cruising guide stuff — weather and tides, marinas, local points of interest — there’s also a wealth of material on cruising with dogs.

Recent articles covered dinghy etiquette and boarding techniques (one inventive owner devised an ingenious sling for his spaniel), deck training (one created a doggy head by stretching a small trampoline-like device across his transom), and life vests and harnesses. You’ll also find pet-friendly marinas and other services, such as veterinarians and pet food and supply stores. For Mary Minard, ActiveCaptain is the “best all-around source of information for pet services.”
