In this ad it states that the width is...
In this ad it states that the width is only 1'11". Is that correct? the one i have is about 27-29" wide. this seems very narrow for a kayak and not so stable for a dog to ride in front of me. what is the measurements of the cockpit?
This is a kayak for kids, or small adults, so it is a bit smaller than your standard kayak. Ideal weight in this one is at or below 140 lbs. More than that and you'll be pretty low in the water. To see the full size version of this kayak model check this link:

I am looking for a kayak that I can take my 45 lb dog with me. would this be the one??? Please let me know. firstname.lastname@example.org
This kayak could be the one but it really depends on your dog more than anything. I'm talking about sea-legs. If your dog has a great ability to balance, it could do fine on a kayaks deck rigging area or on the lid of a closed hatch. Most paddlers prefer to have their companion in front to keep an eye on them. This kayak is good for a small to medium dog to be in front with you and no need for skilled sea-legs as they will be inside the kayak making it easier to stabilize and get comfy. If your dog is tall and prefers to remain in the sitting up position, you should have more than enough clearance to make full strokes. I've seen dogs share the seating area with a paddler only to restrict strokes to little flutters. Have fun!
