    Fun Birthday!

    We had an amazing birthday party for our dog with Candace at Pooch Pontoon. She thought of all the little details and turned it into a very special day! We also learned a lot about the area, would definitely recommend!

    Make your dogs day

    We’ve been on the pooch pontoon a couple of times now and it never gets old to me or our fur babies. You can tell they have the best time and they’re exhausted afterwards. Our dog Luna can be a little skittish but she wasn’t afraid of riding the boat at all. All three of our babies love it so much. Do you and your dog a favor and book with Best Friends on the Lake today!

    Best day ever!

    We give Candace and pooch pontoon 100000000 stars! I first took my husky alone to see how she would do! Candace was super accommodating, even putting a tracker on her so I could see her on the island :) We loved it so much we immediately booked the following weekend to take our husky AND GSD! They had a great time running off leash together (eeeek!) we even saw deer! This was such a great experience!

    Unique Dog Sanity Service

    I just love Candace's Pooch Pontoon service for myself and my dogs. Our dogs Jaque and Manny love these adventures and get so excited when they see Candace again. They jump on her boat without hesitation knowing she's going to take them to an island to smell, run and swim.
    Candace is always prepared and so gentle and loving. A true dog person and now a great friend. We will definitely return for future adventures on Lake Lanier. 🐕 🚢

    Pooch Pontoon

    Have gone on Candace's pontoon with the Humane society's dogs several times and it is a great and fun experience. She's very knowledgeable about Lake Lanier. The dogs love the freedom of the island and going into the water. Candace takes all safety precautions and is a very good captain of the boat. I will be going again and I highly recommend the Pooch Pontoon for anyone with a dog!

    Fun adventure

    I have been lucky enough to take my dog, Bali, on the Pooch Pontoon twice. The second time we took her dog cousins too! Her cousin, Josie, is the dog happily resting on the float in one of the pictures below. Candace is amazing. While on the boat she shares her knowledge of Lake Lanier. Once you get to an island the dogs are free to run, swim, and explore until they wear themselves out! The humans can swim, explore the island, or relax in comfy chairs. Candace provides large umbrellas if you want to get out of the hot sun while watching your dogs play. She even provides snacks and drinks for the humans while the dogs get nice cool water. It is so much fun watching your dog let loose and be a dog for a few hours. I would highly recommend this adventure to anyone that owns a dog. I know I can’t wait to go again!

    Lake Adventure

    I can't say enough good things about this adventure! If you love being on a lake and getting back to nature with your dogs this is the place. Candace is kind and intuitive about dogs. She wants everyone to enjoy nature and be free of city life for a few hours. Contact her for a few hours of relaxation with your furkids!
