Dogs and cats are a common sight on-board canal boats and narrowboats. Ensure you give thought to your furry friends safety on-board

In recent years there has been a rise in the availability of pet safety equipment. As dog and cat owners, as well as canal boat owners, we at the FitOutPontoon really do appreciate the value of pet safety.

Pet life jackets are available from safety equipment suppliers, on line and some chandlers. Different sizes are available to suit all breeds, and some come with useful recovery handles for lifting the unfortunate victim from the water.

Pet safety is not just about keeping them safe from hazards, it’s also about making sure they do not become a hazard.

Many canal boat owners and holiday makers enjoy the company of pets. One of the more unusual sights along the tow path is that of the cat owner holing a long lead in one hand whilst gazing expectantly up into a tree.

We digress, pay particular attention to your pet around locks. We have seen several unfortunate owners become entangled in their eager pets lead whilst trying to operate the lock. It’s a short step from either or both ending up in the water.

All we want is for you all to be able to enjoy your boating safely.
