Practice paddling with them in warm water near shore at first. An old rug won't hurt, but clipping their toenails is all you really need to do.

Most dogs like being in boats and readily take to it. I have had multiple dogs on week long canoe, raft, and sailboat trips and we all had fun.

Teach them to sit and stay put. A reach and a touch with a paddle can wake them up if they are day-dreaming. One dog I had really liked to watch the salmon swim under the boat on the Sacramento River.
