|We kayak with the dogs all Summer. Right now I have small toy breeds but I had labs in the past.
I would NOT get a sit on kayak... a good one with plenty of room in the front is much easier to keep the dog in. We use two brands, one is a Wilderness Systems Pamlico 100, and the other two are Old Town Otters. With the labs I had an Old Town Loon 120, which was perfect but very heavy!!!
I am NOT small, so the Otters are tight for me and a large dog but the Wilderness System one is perfect.
I just put the dog in and away we go!!! It helps if they know "sit" and "stay" really well! Mine all start out with a life jacket until they fall in at least once and I know they can handle it without panicking. We do keep a leash on them.
Check out Toto's photo album on his page and you will see plenty of photos of us kayaking... they are fairly far down toward the bottom, however.
