Dangers of having a pet aboard

Posted on by West Coast Marine Yacht Charter Services India

There are a lot of things that should be kept in mind while taking your pet on a Yacht Charter. One should take care of the following things to avoid dangers of having pets on Sailboats.

  1. If this happens to be your pet’s first yacht holiday it might be scared, so what is required of you is to make a safe area for your pet. If you are unaware of how your pet may react to the Luxury Sailing Yacht Charter you must take it to a few short boat trips. You should carry your pet’s necessary toys and blankets so that it feels comfortable and safe. Animals create a lot of panic in situations that are not familiar. They might get violent under such circumstances so you must take care that your pet doesn’t hurt itself or anyone at the charter yacht.
  2. You must be ready to teach your dog various specific and simple commands for the Yacht Charter journey.
  3. Extra care needs to be taken while sailing. Your pet must not be in way so that it ends up hurting itself or someone on the sailboat. For swimming purposes, you require a pet floatation device to keep it safe. Also in case of rough weather it is advisable to tether your pet when to the yacht party.
  4. Pets tend to be sensitive. They might fall prey to seasickness. In case of such situations wait until their stomach calms and then feed them with milk. Also they might get sunburnt in that case all the hypoallergenic sunscreens for humans should do for them too.

Pets form a part of our own family and therefore they deserve a yacht holiday with you. A little precautions  can make a trip to remember forever.
