90% of the hours on our boat come from fishing trips - that is no place for a dog. Without asking, a fried showed up with his dog. When fish came on board, the dog would go nuts. Slimy deck + thrashing fish + multiple treble hooks + over-excited dog = potential bad situation.

"No Dog" rule now for everyone that comes on board.
If you are offshore for long periods good rule. However in our house we do trips the dog fits in on perfectly.
