He Makes A Custom Kayak So He Can Bring His Dogs Along On The Water

67-year-old David Bahnson didn’t like the idea of canoeing without his best friends, so he decided to amend his kayak so both of his Golden Retrievers, Susie and Ginger, could go on aqua-adventures with him.

“It’s like a triple kayak, only there isn’t enough room for the paddlers to put their feet — but it works perfectly for the dogs… They never hopped out into the water, actually,” Bahnson says.

“Our dogs love to travel with us in cars, in my airplane, and in boats.”

“Building a way for them to kayak with us just seemed like a logical choice, and the boats are fun to build anyway.”

“We’ve gone miles and miles paddling with our Retrievers.”

Sadly, both Susie and Ginger have passed away. But the family tradition of ensuring their dogs have fun-packed and fulfilling lives continues with the family’s latest addition, Piper. We wish her a long and happy life.
