Paddle With Your Pup
Downunder CT LLC kayaks * sups * surf shop
Want to get your furry friend out on the water? This program will get your dog comfortable with the equipment, allow them to practice getting on and off a paddle board or kayak, includes our staff assisting you onto the water, as well as accompanying you to ensure your experience is safe and fun. We encourage you to bring treats that you know your dog likes – food and or toys.
You must have experience paddle boarding.
Life jackets are included – however we do need to know in advance the size of your dog to ensure we have the right one available. They are also available for purchase.
Our inspiration for this program is SUP With Your Pup, a book by Maria Schultz, that outlines a very thorough training process designed to reduce anxiety, and prepare both pet and owner a successful experience, and the confidence to do it on their own. The information is easily transferable to kayaks.
Pets are often nervous about this new experience, which in most instances ensures that they sit still. There can be many scenarios for how your dog reacts, including going for a swim! The instructor and dock staff are experienced and there to respond to whatever happens.
