I am taking my sister on a commercial raft trip while I kayak. She wondered what he dog would do on the raft if commercial outfitters let the dogs come along (which they don't). I have seen several dogs on the Ark in private rafts, and the posts about doggie issues below made me wonder how you get a whitewater pooch started. Do you take them in a raft in mellow water first, or do you just throw em in the raft and run Brown's canyon and hope they don't piss in the raft? Are some scared shitless, while others love it? Interested to hear comments as my sister loves bringing her dog out whenever we go outdoors. It is a mixed breed that is somewhat mellow and somewhat shy, not sure how it would handle the water or a raft.
