Surf Lesson Includes:
Teach your dog how to surf with passionate, experienced dog surfers from the SoCal Surf Dogs Club. After 20 minutes of group learning on land, you and you dog will be paired up with a SoCal Surf Dogs instructor to try out the waves. You’ll be learning basic and advanced techniques to teach your dog how to surf, so be ready to get in the water! San Diego Pet Training will also be on hand for guidance.
You'll get: use of a surfboard, canine life vest, instruction by a SoCal Surf Dogs member, and volunteers to help retrieve your dog and board.
Stand Up Paddle Board Lesson Includes:
Learn stand up paddle boarding with your dog from experienced SoCal SUP Dogs instructors. After ten minutes learning on land, you’ll head out into the channel for a twenty minute solo orientation on the board (volunteers will watch your pup). Then you and your dog will do a ten minute on-land orientation with the board before heading out for thirty minutes of SUPing together, under the direction of your instructor. San Diego Pet Training will also be on hand for guidance.
You'll get: use of a stand up paddle board, canine and human life vests, and instruction. If you prefer to use your own board, it must be a stand up paddle board, not surf board.
Proceeds from lessons help orphan pets and programs at Helen Woodward Animal Center!
