FAMILY AND DOG-FRIENDLY BEACH DAY
Friends, families, and pups come together for a day of sun, surf, and fun, all to benefit the animals and programs at Helen Woodward Animal Center! Hunker down on the beach for the day to watch more than 80 gromMUTTS and surFURS compete for the title of “Top Surf Dog.” The Surf Dog Surf-A-Thon begins at 8:30am, September 11, 2016, at Dog Beach in Del Mar. Spectators are welcome to come enjoy the dog surfing competition as well as interactive vendor booths, food, a doggy costume contest, dog agility course, live music, opportunity drawings, and summer fun!
Dogs, with help from their human parents, participate in 10-minute heats based on weight class. Each dog is judged on their ability to ride the waves, stay on the board, and fun-factor. There are 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place winners for each weight class and the 1st place winner moves on to the finals--Best In Surf.
This year's activities will also feature a freestyle surf contest where points are awarded for creativity! Dogs can surf on the same board as their friends, or favorite human. Tandem rides, tricks, and costumes will catch the public and the judges' eyes!
