Man Builds Custom Kayak So He Could Take Both His Dogs Boating

Published 4 years ago

Cats famously hate water, but dogs are good swimmers and apparently avid kayaking fans. That’s why 67-year-old David Bahnson had had to modify his kayak so that his golden retriever Susie could join him on the journeys. When the Bahnsons got an another dog, David built a new hull to accommodate both of the dogs.

“Our dogs have always loved to travel with us in cars, in my airplane, in boats,” Bahnson told Huffington Post. “Building a way for them to kayak with us just seemed like a logical choice, and the boats are fun to build anyway.” Apparently, one of the retrievers had even learned how to windsurf!
