I had problems with the wired dog fence and went with a wireless one at my primary house and love it. When it’s time to go to the lake we just take the unit with us and plug it in. You can place...

Pressure washer

Probably the simplest, safest and best way albeit more expensive is to keep the pump and electrical on land and run a hose to the dock. Attach the hose to a pressure washer (<$200) and voila plenty...
