Paddleboarding with dog
If you are reading this post, you are surely a lover of water sports and dogs. We know that you would definitely like to combine it! It’s a great idea to spend time with your four-legged friend, you can swim together on the board. However, if you are going to do this, you must know how. This post will help you!
Not every board will be suitable for traveling with a dog. It all depends on your weight and the weight of your dog. Boards over ten feet long are the most stable, which makes them a good choice when you’re taking your dog along for the ride. The perfect choices will be : MOAI 10’6, MOAI 11’, MOAI 12’4 and even bigger ones, not smaller than 10’6!
Remember that you must consider your and your dog weight, it’s the most important thing because your board needs to be stable. You also need to remember to keep your dog stable on the board as the board can be slippery but our boards have a comfortable foot cushioning foam pad to stand on. This so-called EVA pad is also anti-slip, which is great for the dog!
SUP can be confusing to your dog at first, so it’s important to prepare him/her for it. You may ask : What should I do? Luckily, we are here to help you!
It would be good for you to teach your dog some simple commands, for example: sit & stay.
Let him get to know the board first, let him get used to it, dogs get stressed very quickly, so it’s important to stay calm. You can encourage him to get on the board, get to know it.
