  You may have trim issues
  Posted by: kayamedic on May-09-13 10:38 PM (EST)
 

and for sure the movements of the dog behind will be felt by you.

You will have to work out the trim ahead of time. What usually does NOT work is dogs in front of you making the bow heavy ..steering suffers. The dogs will need to feel comfortable. Mine stands if she feels cramped. This is not always to my liking!

A shower mat with grippy cups seems to work best. The other ilk like yoga mats seem to slide a bit much for my liking.

Try smaller dog in front and larger in back.. but you will have to adjust if the bigger dog is the more moving.

My dog has finally graduated to being in the back..but there she likes to stick her head between my arm and torso..and its darn hard to paddle!
