When talking about safety of your pet aboard charter yacht, there are a few things to consider. To prevent any dangers of having a pet aboard, follow these tips. If this is your pet's first sailing trip, it may be scared so you need to create a safe area for your pet.
If you do not know how your pet could react to sailing conditions, take it on a few short boat trips. Bring its favorite toys and blanket - these are necessary for your pet to feel safe aboard the charter yacht. Animals tend to panic in unfamiliar situations and can get violent when scared, so you need to make sure your pet does not hurt itself or someone else.
Dogs need to be taught simple and specific commands prior to the trip. We are certain that your dog is already quite disciplined, however these commands need to be specifically intended for the dog's behavior aboard the charter yacht.
You need to be extra careful during sailing. Your dog should not be in the way or it or someone else might end up hurt or overboard. Your pet may be a good swimmer but it will need a pet flotation device as it may save its life. If the conditions are especially rough, it may be a good idea to tether your dog to the boat and put a PFD on the dog. A smart thing would be to attach a swim platform to the yacht. In that case, if the dog falls overboard, it would be easier to recover the animal.
If your pet gets seasick, wait until its stomach calms and then give it some milk. Travel-induced stress is also a danger for your pet. It can cause constipation, to fix it, add a daily teaspoon of vegetable oil to its food. If the pet gets sunburnt, hypoallergenic sunblocks for humans should do.
When on shore, keep your dog on a leash, and if needed put a muzzle on the dog's snout. This is normally necessary with the larger dog breeds or if it is demanded by local laws.
