The So Cal Surf Dogs is a Club for Surfing Dogs (Also known as Surf Dogs or SurFurs) and their Owners!
The So Cal Surf Dogs are a fun loving group of Dog Owners who surf with their dogs. We promote safe Dog Surfing and having fun surfing with your Surf Dog for the mental and physical health for both you and your dog. It's a great workout!
We are also active in the support of various charities here in San Diego!
It cost nothing to join. We'll try to keep you up to date on what's going on with Dog Surfing in Southern California.
Checkout the profiles of some of our dogs in the "Surf Dog Profiles" section of our site.
You don't need to know how to surf to participate. Only a few members actually surf themselves.
Don't be fooled, It's NOT and Extreme Sport, It's just extremely FUN!
We also promote safety in the water by requiring all our Surf Dogs to wear a Canine Flotation Device (CFD) every time they go into the water.
We get together to exchange tips on surfing with your dog and would be happy to pass on what we’ve learned. Checkout our 'Teach Your Dog To Surf' Section for lots of proven techniques.
We also provide links to many other helpful sites.
