Motion Sickness Happens

Dogs especially puppies get motion sickness just like humans. If you dog gets sick on car rides he definitely is a candidate for motion sickness. One puppy I know always throws up if he eats before a car ride, make sure you don’t feed your dog before some water adventures. If you dog gets really sick, I would not recommend taking them around water.

Some dogs love boats some hate it, just like a person you have to get to know your dog.
