On Saturday, about a dozen dogs traded in their leashes for live vests and rode surfboards as part of the first event Dog Surfing Competition. Taking to the beach just south of Carlin Park in Jupiter, the event raised money for the Wellington based Big Dog Ranch Rescue.

Despite the rough waves and rip currents, over 500 people and their “furry friends” attended the event put on by Ocean Magic Surf Shop in Jupiter.

Big Dog Ranch is a no-kill dog rescue facility that provides shelter, care, and affection to homeless and unwanted dogs of all breeds. They then adopt the dogs to people that are willing and able to take them.

The event was so successful that Ocean Magic hopes to make the dog surfing competition an annual event. Months were spent organizing the event and the surf shop even offered dog surfing lessons to teach the pets how to compete in the event.

Organizers were very happy with the turnout for the competition. They were expecting only about 150 people to attend but ended up with a viewing audience of over 500 people.
