Paws in the air! I can just picture it.

Our pooch will lay down in the PI on occasion, but no rolling thank goodness. I have a video clip of her sitting in the PI that I added music to.....MC Hammer "U Can't Touch This."

We took our 10 month old border terrier on an upper Hell's Canyon trip in august. There was a good amount of PI at the first camp. We kept him on a 10 or 15 foot lead and out of the PI as much as possible. No PI at the next camp and we let him run around.

I've never actually seen a dog transfer PI to a human. It makes sense to take precautions though I guess.

For kayakers,

Waterton canyon has a road following on river left that is closed to vehicle traffic (except Denver Water). I used to take my hound and let her follow down the road while we boated
