I was wondering if there's anyone with any suggestions on how to make my puppy unafraid of boating? We have a 5 month old Malinois puppy, we've taken him out on our 20 ft bow rider a few times. He's "OK" with it when we are stopped and anchored. But when we are underway he hides under my legs and whines the whole time. We always see people with dogs on their boat and they seem to be having fun standing up front with the wind whipping through their hair. We try to give him a lot of treats on the boat thinking he will think of the boat as a place to get treats. Any suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks

I don't have any helpful advice at the moment. I will be watching this thread carefully. I have been getting the boat ready over the last week and it will be my pup's first outing . He's been out back watching me work on it all week and I have been putting him inside it for a few minutes at a time ,to see how he likes it . So far so good. BUT that's a far cry away from on the water . Good luck .
