Animal Welfare

Things I learnt when we took our 18-month old Working Cocker Spaniel in a K2 the other day:

  1. She may be small, but the space between my knees in the K2 cockpit is smaller.
  2. Dog feet can’t grip kayak hulls.
  3. Having 10kg of dog moving around a boat makes for unwanted stability practice.
  4. You can’t perfect your technique when there’s a Spaniel’s head in the way of your paddle.


The Conclusion:

As much as I wanted to include our dog in our training this year – it’s not a good idea.
