Hi Peter,

I can only speak for myself and Macie dog here, but in reality from what I have read/seen on past evidence the NBF dog owners club are both responsible and respect others wishes.

It most definetly will not be a free for all and poop bags are stored onboard 'B.A' permanently.  As for the barkng thing where Macie is concerned she will only do that on two occasions, 1) when instructed to do so (I can make her bark on demand with a hand sign) 2) if an 'Un-invited' guest should appear onboard.

She is very good with people and loves kids (Has one for B'fast every morning Playful Wink  )  I assure you there will not be a problem with our Macie.

Edit:- Macie will not be wearing a lead onboard or a muzzle at any time

"Luise", worry not.  

No responsible dog owner would ever allow their pet to foul an area where children walk and play.  Experienced, responsible dog owners tend to know when their pets are likely to need a comfort break, and whilst I do not keep a tea cup on me, I am NEVER without poo bags, like any responsible owner.  In addition, most dogs prefer to do their ablutions in private in long grass, away from people. And all responsible dog owners look to the health of their pets, worming regularly and using Frontline or alternative anti flea and tick preparations, not to mention annual injections.

As to behaviour, you note in your message that a JRT can have as many or more behaviour issues as a Rottie or Staffie so you know there is no need to be afraid of certain breeds per se, just be guided by the owner as to whether the dog is solid with other dogs, people and children. Certainly my PAT dog has been temperament tested by an expert, otherwise she would not be welcome in hospital, care homes and hospices.  She is solid with adults and the elderly, manual and automatic wheelchairs and walking sticks and loud noises.  She also has a health care regime for similar reasons.  I am positive the same will be true of the other dogs, or arrangements will be made to wear a Halti or similar.

I don't know where you do your walking, but in this village, there are no t*rds on the playing fields and park.  If an owner sees an "accident" caused by others, they pick it up because we do not wish our beautiful village to be fouled.

We're making these arrangements in advance because of the "rafting up" on Friday night.

edit: missed one issue - my dog will be on lead but she will not be muzzled.  

All will be well.

Hi Kathy here - following on from Lisa's comments so far I have not met a fellow broader/dog owner who is not responsible nor have I ever seen any dog mess where any people (not just children) use.  

Peter - you mentioned fouling by dogs - have you not given a thought to the wildlife around the area such as foxes?  Any where you choose to walk around the broads is inhabitated by ducks/geese/swans and trust me they can leave more "offerings" than our four legged friends.

I will agree with you on one point and that is yes wet dog does stink, but no where near as much as some people I've had the misfortune to meet.

We are looking to attend out first meet this year with the other families and I'm sorry to say this but our dog is part of our family and will be with us aboard No Worries.

Look forward to seeing everyone there.

Kathy

Our three household defence brigade members will be in kennels for the cruise in company and the NBF meet.
They will however make an appearance later in the year for those of a soppy nature who wish to gush over a dog that looks like a teddy bear with a big black nose. (the Scooby Airedale)
He loves humans of all sizes and shapes and has no prejudice at all to whom he gives his licks/ affection. In fact he is something of a tart....He has never left anything behind him on his walks (ever) and he never will.
Our first Airedale taught all three of our children to walk, and no I am not joking he really did. If you can imagine small hands and a big beard .. HHHmm there were moments when he could have been annoyed. He never growled barked or anything he wasn't asked to do.
He did once see off an intruder in our house when Mrs fidear was alone but that was only a growl required and he (the intruder)fled.
We and the children are looking forward to meeting all of the forum members irrespective of the number of feet they possess.
I am particularly looking forward to meeting a former hearing dog (Miss Leigh) as my mother in law was a socialiser for the hearing dogs for the deaf. I am also looking forward to trying out our own hand signals with Macie dog!!Does she know the one for bring dad another beer???

See you soon folks......

Bring Dad another beer

Unfortunatley (For me) Macie dog likes the stuff herself, it would be severly consumed before it got anywhere near me  Frown

Changing the subject from dogs to getting ashore, I shall be bringing the 'duckling' tender so anyone can use her to row ashore (no outboard yet although did have one in the 70s but sold it!!!). Plus one enthusiatic (I hope) crew - daughter no 1 has volunteered to accompany me for the Friday and Saturday.

There is a story that daughter no 3 had to guide me down Horning Village Street once but I promise to behave

Scooby (Airedale)prefers sparkling white wine or a nicely chilled Chardonay. He used to be an exclusively red wine dog but his tastes have expanded as he got older.
He wont touch beer or gin and tonic or any of the normal doggy drinks, he sticks with his wine.
We have though, drawn the line at him knocking the glass over just to lick up the spillage.

Cheeky thing he is.

Mind you fizzy wine in the beard is preferable to almost anything else you can imagine.....

Thank you Liz, Griff, Martin and others for information about tenders, gratefully received.

Miss Leigh would have you know she is teetotal, unlike her slaves. Though "fish milk" (skimmed milk in which fish has been poached) is a welcome treat, as are all things fishy.

Right  Blush   I stupidly mentioned to ones daughter that someone on here had purchased a pink lifejacket.

Mistake 1 - I can't find the post or who said it
Mistake 2 - Telling her as she now wants one  Scared

So whoever it was, can you please furnish me with the details please?  Blush
