My dog, Roxy, joins me in all kinds of adventures. When I went paddle boarding for the first time, I noticed several dog paddlers of the canine kind. Big dogs and little dogs. Most seemed to be having a great time.
Here’s a dog who couldn’t get enough paddle boarding and dog paddling.
I wondered how my poofy Bichon would like it. She can be adventurous. She loves hiking, but our last camping trip surprised me.
After purchasing a doggie life preserver, with a handle to pull her out of the water, I thought I’d give it a go.
Roxy seemed okay with the orange getup so I carried her out to the pond. We have a radio containment system and I don’t want her to snoop where the wild cats and coyotes hang out. She’s never been back there.
Would she paddle board or jump off?
See for yourself.
Watch her head in the ten second video. Does she look like she wants to come to shore?
Thinking the novelty may have worn off, I took her out again to see her reaction. Ha! She stayed on the board after I got off. I had to call her to come!
Even without webbed paws, I’d say Roxy loves the water. Well, she loves paddling above it, anyway.
Do you have a dog? Would you consider paddle boarding with it?
