What you'll do

You will get the chance to connect with your dog on a whole new level. Discover the level of trust you share by co-captaining a Stand Up Paddleboard with your dog. We ease into the experience using baby steps based on the comfortability of your pup. Each session starts with an exercise to get your dog comfortable wearing a life jacket and standing on a board on the beach and practice the commands you will be using. Then your dog will have a chance to be on board while you stand in the water and then once that comfort and trust starts to develop you can paddle out on your knees and eventually stand up and take your dog on a little tour. Every animal is unique, so you will go at the pace of your pup.
Other things to note
Before leaving, check that your dog is feeling okay, has had lots of water, and that their life jacket still fits. You should wear clothes you don’t mind getting wet.

I have 3 dogs (2 chihuahuas and a German shepherd) am an Advanced Paddle Canada instructor, Yoga teacher and Reiki Master, with a passion for bringing all bodies to the beautiful waters of Georgian Bay Ontario, regardless of age, shape, or if you have 4 legs. I started sharing paddleboarding experiences as a way to share my passion with the community and to show others that Stand Up Paddle really is for every body. Since then, I have paddled with people from ages 2 - 75 and their pups.

What a great time we had with our 2 dogs and Heather! She was so patient and knowledgeable. We have 2 bigger dogs (black lab and lab/collie mix) and one of them is very difficult to work with and is WAY too excited. She took the time and worked with us at our pace. It was a bit of a windy day so we weren't able to go too far out but otherwise an hour so well spent with our furry babies. Another activity off our list for our 'boys'. Highly recommend Heather!

We had a great time. Heather is a patient instructor. We learned good tips for handling the board and our pooch on it!
