a) You need to check if there are any laws applicable to bringing your pet on board and follow them thoroughly to avoid any legal problems.
b) Make sure your pet isn’t overheating by putting him in a air conditioned part of the cabin. Bring some cool water for your pet to cool down when it gets too hot.

e) Always keep your eyes on your dog at all times. Make sure he’s on a tether and don’t leave him unattended for a long period of time.
f) You should bring enough water and food for the trip to avoid dehydration or hunger.
With these tips, your next trip on the open water with your pet will be memorable.
