Pups on SUPS (Stand up Paddleboards) Sunday Mornings
In partnership with SAFE INC to raise funds for the re-homing of animals.
I’m really excited to offer the first ever class where you can bring your pooch along for double the fun in a group session. We will cover the usual basic techniques of stand up paddling while your dog gets a cruisy ride and enjoys the scenery. It’s one way to pamper your pooch and have a load of laughs…anything could happen and usually does.
If you haven’t paddled before we recommend a SUP lesson or hire a board prior to attempting with your pooch. Please contact us to discuss your options.
We provide SUP boards, paddles and leg ropes. It is advisable to deck your dog out in a special safety harness with a handle on top if they are not strong swimmers. We will not be paddling far and will be close to the shore. If your dog loves the water and can swim, you may decide that the harness is not necessary. Bring some treats with you as a reward for good doggy work!
Now for the serious stuff…
If your dog is not trained or socialised please consider whether this will be a suitable activity for you both. You may wish to book a one to one lesson first to see how your buddy will take to the water on a sup and practice some tips to encourage familiarity and confidence before joining a group.
You will need to sign a disclaimer prior to each session.
