Thanks! Those are the kind of tips I was looking for!A few tips:
1. Human and dog poop can peacefully coexist in groovers if you don't want to throw poop away in the trash bag. Pick it up with a baggie, throw it in the groover, then toss the baggie in the trash.
2. Make a flat, secure space on the raft for the dog to sit/stand on or they're likely to drive you crazy.
3. Bring a glow-in-the-dark or light-up collar for the dog in camp, especially if the dog is dark or likes to patrol the camp perimeter.
4. Dog PFDs are great, but not all are created equal. My dogs dig the Underdog vest from MTI. It seems to be more comfortable both in water and on land.
5. If your dog REALLY likes water, trying to keep them dry before bed can be problematic. You may want to bring something for your tent to keep your sleeping bags from getting dirty/wet. We use an old duvet cover as a top sheet.
I'd say it's 1000x more important to actively pick up the poop ... than to mix it with people poop.If you go with other folks, especially people without dogs, you might want to bring a separate ammo can for the dog's poop, instead of putting it in the peoples' groover.
