Just purchased an Ocean Kayak Sidekick earlier this year. This is my first kayak, and I've been using it to take my dog (75lb German Shepherd/Husky) out on the lake, and the river. It is a really stable boat.
I added a bunch of non-skid to the front so she can ride easier. The only two things I didn't like were the rear well, as it was awkward to find a cooler that fit it really well, but once I did it's been great. The bow seat area doesn't drain as well as I would like either. Doesn't affect me or the dog much, but has made me change my mind about installing a second hatch there for additional storage.
I would highly recommend this boat to anyone looking to kayak with a child or pet!
