I want to know if dogs can get stung, I have not been able to find any info on this and I thought you guys would be the ones to know!
Yes, I suppose that someday a dog will get stung by a stingray.
Can’t tell you why, but in the 5 years I’ve been surfing with my Surf Dog Nani and other members of the SoCal Surf Dogs, she (and the other Surf Dogs) has never been stung! I have 3 times!
A few other Owners have too!
We even started a ‘S Ray Club’ to document the stings.

I think it’s because they get up onto the surfboard right away, close to the shore, before they would encounter a stingray and they typically
ride the wave all the way to the beach, thus limiting their exposure to the risk!
Hope that answers your question!
