Nowadays, inflatable boats have become a common sight at almost every marina. Tied to a cleat, bouncing back and forth against the dock lazily with each passing wave, they’ve become so common they almost feel like they belong there. Also known as zodiac boats, inflatable boats are used for a wide range of outdoor activities, including fishing, rowing and everything in between. Due to the fact that they can be easily inflated and deflated, you can store them in a small space or tie them against a ship or an RV, which makes them some of the most seaworthy crafts of their size

When most people hop in their car with family or friends, they think about the destination or the activities that are awaiting them once they get where they’re headed.

Well, same as us, our dogs need their daily rest, recovering the energy they lost chasing birds, cats, balls, branches, you name it.
