Dogs Surfing For Charity – VIDEO

About 50 dogs decked out in surfing gear, including loud Hawaiian shirts and sunglasses, took to the waves last week for the largest canine surfing event in the US.

Animals of all shapes and sizes competed to be top dog in the 6th annual Loews Coronado Bay Resort Surf Dog Competition, held at Imperial Beach in California.
Dogs were judged on their style, confidence and length of time on a wave.

Competition was split into categories for small surf dogs under 40 pounds, and their larger counterparts. A separate category was held for dogs and their owners surfing together on the same board.

Top dogs were awarded a VIP – Very Important Pet – holiday at the San Diego resort, and a feature in Modern Dog Magazine.

All proceeds from the event were donated to DonorsChoose.org, which provides a space for public teachers in San Diego to get funding for school supplies from private sponsors.

If I could really believe that the dogs enjoyed it I would think it was a good idea, but as it is I'm very uncertain about it.

My Basenjis hate getting wet, so it would be torture for them to be on a surfboard. We take them boating in our canoe with their life jackets on and they like that. They don't get wet in there.
