Canines Catching Waves

Posted: Updated:

Well here's something you don't see everyday…dogs surfing!

Dogs in Brazil are riding waves off the Rio De Janeiro's Barra beach.

They are training for next month's second annual paddle board competition where human and dog teams compete.

The organizer of the event says the idea came to him when he was hitting the surf himself. He could no longer bear to see his dog tied up on the beach while he was enjoying the waves. He decided to let the dog join in on the fun.

The doggie and owner teams have to make it through the course without the dog falling off the board

At least they know the doggie paddle if they do take a spill!
