Sounds like I'll just clip their nails during the season, maybe ask the groomer to file em a bit so there not as sharp, thanks for the replies. My Riken boat is actually in pretty good shape for its age, just one patch from my dog, The wear is on top of the bow tubes. The material is fading quick from the sun and time. Each trip a little more fades and peels off. I don't think the boat really got 303d much until I got it a few years ago. But yes a newer self bailer would be nice.

I have a newer vangaurd and my dog goes on every trip and have never had a problem. He ways about 80 pounds and giant claws. Maybe its just the older boat.

Pool and a pond... Pond be good for you.

I've never had a problem with my 2 year old NRS Otter and two labs. The dogs are usually with me for daylong fishing trips or weeklong floats up here in AK. I only have about 400 miles on the boat so your experience may vary. I notice minor scratches by the end of the summer, but re-coating the boat with 303 protectant before putting it up for the winter eliminates them.
