The article recommends not to bring a dog on a river trip in Alaska. A dog is hardly an asset on a river trip. Domestic dogs and wild animals are a poor mix. Dogs chase and sometimes kill birds and small mammals. A barking dog alarms wildlife. Their barking can diminish the solitude sought by voyagers on the river. And their droppings are difficult to keep track of and dispose of properly.
