Dog freaks out when starting boat
 
Have a 17í Mirrocraft fish and ski. Turn the key and the system check beeping is as loud as a fire alarm. Dog hates boat, dog hates fire alarms. Any way to disconnect or muffle the sound? I looked under the dash and I see no speaker and cant tell where the sound is coming from?

I'm running a Tohatsu (Honda ) and the alarm on it is it attached to the instrument cluster.
I'm an enclosed cabin and the alarm was much too loud so I cut about a 2 inch circle from scrap Sea Deck and stuck for that on the front of the alarm, it quieted the alarm so much that I had to go back and cut some of the Sea Deck off to make the alarm loud enough to hear it during operation.

Train your dog.

^ Sounds like the best advice to me. :thumbsup:

Dogs have such great hearing, the high pitch sound probably irritates his ears.

Train the dog.

You ever had a migrane headache????? That is what is happening to the dog, disable the alarm, treats are not going to help

Show us your helm, the dog is not to blame. I hate things that chirp and beep also. Anything is possible. I’ve taken apart a toaster oven and removed the beep speaker before.

Loud noises can be ruff on dogs.
I've seen 'em get scared and head straight for the barking lot.
You can check the decibles with a simple Lab test.
Sometime turning on the radio can help, especially the subWoofer.
I wouldn't Rover react.

If the dog has ever been on a wireless fence before, a high pitch sound is the warning sound before they get lit up by the shock collar....obviously if you had the dog since a puppy, you would know whether it was on a fence system, but if you adopted it, it could be from it's previous owners......

If you disconnect it ,how will you know you have a problem with the engine ???? Overheating, oil problem, water in fuel . Might be a better ideal to leave the dog at home or off boat until you get it started.

We donít know why the dog is exhibiting such reaction. Very well could be a learned response to sound from its past. I highly doubt there is actual physical pain from the sound. Should be able to reteach the dog.

Start with the dog at a distance from the boat. Start boat. Dog gets treat and praise. Slowly move dog closer and closer over many days. When you finally take dog for a ride, it has to be fun, but also, keep motor running so you donít freak dog out when you are 5 miles from home and start the boat with the dog in it.

Does the dog even enjoy boat rides?
