Nothing new on it that we take our dogs for a ride on cycle, in car or sometimes in airplane but taking your dog for kayaking it may sound new to many.
David Bhanson, a retired orthopedic surgeon living from Vermont, loves kayaking as much he loves his dogs.
While going for a paddle when Bhanson saw how easily his dog Susie fit into the baggage compartment of his handmade kayak, the doc ordered another a Coho Kayak Kit as a new member name Ginger joined their family & it was unfair not giving him a space for the trips.
Bhanson added coaming to the baggage compartment to keep Susie dry & for Ginger he built a custom made baggage compartment toward the front of the boat & it’s perfect for a dog to sit or lie down.
“They used to get excited when we we’d pull the kayaks out & see that we were going. They seem to love it”- Bahnson said.
Sadly, Susie & Ginger have passed away but the love with dogs and kayaking keeps Bhanson busy all day as a new golden – Piper gives him the company.
Buiding boats & taking dogs for kayaking must be fun for all people who loves to go on an adventure with their dogs.
