Paddling with Dogs Training

Diesel on SUP board

Teach Your Dog to Ride a Paddle Craft Safely 

Is your dog ready to ride the paddle craft?

LEVEL 1: Prepare To Ride a Paddle Craft.  This course includes both dryland and shoreline training, and is designed to help dogs become confident and well-mannered around the craft, equipment, and environment.  This course will also provide some important dog first aid information. This course is not designed to teach the human how to use the paddle craft; it is recommended that participants are comfortable operating the paddle craft safely and appropriately without a dog before trying it with a dog on board. Stand Up Paddle Board, paddle, and life vest are provided. NOTE: if your dog can ride a Stand Up Paddle Board, your dog should have no trouble riding other types of paddle craft (e.g. canoe, kayak).
