Dog Spots

For those cruising with dogs, additional criteria is used to survey potential anchorages. We look for ease of getting ashore, condition of the landing zone (and I don't mean the one used by the dingy) as well as the possibility of incurring the wrath of any unreasonable, dog-hating landowner.  Therefore, as a service to CBSA members with dog crew members, we are publishing the following list of spots that have worked for us. Anyone wishing to contribute should add a comment to this page. When the dog has to go, the dog has to go!!!
