There is no doubt that dogs love the beach as it gives them space to play, run around and dig in the sand. Dogs are becoming a part of the surf culture and there are surfing competitions even for them.
Dog surfing is becoming a hot trend with the owners admitting that the canines actually enjoy themselves in the water. Teaching your dog to surf is a unique way to have fun, connect with your pet and study its behaviour.
Huntington Beach in California is a place famous for its annual ‘Surf City Surf Dog’ event. Dog of all shapes and sizes take to the waves along with their owners. The dogs are judged on a variety of skills including their confidence on the board and for how long they are able to surf.
Some of the canines do need a bit of encouragement while others catch a good wave and ride the surf. The below video features the doggies having a swell time.
