Yes indeed, San Diego is in fact #1 on many of the dog friendly lists these days for many reasons. The weather, dog beach, dog friendly bistros and restaurants, trails and parks and surf dog training events are just a few of the reasons.
Surfing has become a growing sport in the world of dogs who live near the California Coast and Sunday September 12, 2010 hosts one of the original surf dog contests The Del Mar Surf Dog Surf A Thon.
Though there were several Surf Dog Clinics in the past month this event is for dogs from beginners to pros so don’t let inexperience limit you from attending this cool beach dog surf event.
If teaching your dog to surf seems like something that would be too difficult for your dog, this is one you can rethink. Fun steps like “Spot” can be taught out of the water then moved to water as a game that is well worth playing.
Studies show that doing new things is one of the most important factors in those who say they feel a sense of overall happiness in life.
Get in some nice easy ocean waves with your dog on a board next to you. It will qualify for fun and happiness compared to the regular old Sunday routine!
