Is that the Thermarest Ridgecrest sleeping pad you are using for your dog? Did you cut the length down at all? And did you secure that into the canoe somehow?

Just looking for ideas. I have a Ridgecrest, and a dog... our current pad setup sucks.

Yes, Thermarest Ridgerest cut in half. Don't secure it to your canoe it just rolls up and sits under my seat while portaging. You can use them at camp to sit on and makes a great dog bed in the tent.

Do you find the ridge rest slips around on wet canoe bottom when the dog jumps in and out? I had been using some thinsulate this way, but found as soon as there is any water in the bilge the pad wants to slip a lot when the dog gives a leap in/out.

It doesn't move at all.
