I am planning to travel to the South of India next year with my dog. I have gone to India 5 years back. So this time I am mostly exploring the less crowded, less explored places of India. I also missed out on houseboating last time, so I'm doing that also. While researching I came across <snip> and I am planning to book a houseboat with them. So my doubt here is, is it allowed to take my dog along with me in this houseboat stay?

Firsty, did you take your dog on your previous visit to India? If so, you'll be aware that rabies is endemic there - not just in dogs but in monkeys and other animals too and that an estimated 25,000+ humans die from the disease every year there. I hope you - and your dog - take all the necessary precautions, including avoiding the hundreds of street dogs you'll doubtless encounter!
With regard to houseboats, I assume you're travelling to Kerala and want to visit the backwaters there. Website addresses aren't allowed in the forums, so I don't know the company you found in your research. On my visit a few years ago, I used Southern Backwaters and found them very reliable (Google them). You would need to contact them to ask about taking a dog on board.
