Saturday 22 September 2018

Petaluma River paddle for the dogs

A fun and scenic paddle event on the Petaluma River and estuary that promises to be relaxing and potentially exciting, for those that want to race! This event will benefit Bergin University of Canine Studies and their service dogs. The event will include Paddleboarding and Kayaking and be appropriate for ages 3 to well into the senior years! Dogs are welcome and encouraged - lessons for dogs and their owners will be provided in advance of the event.

This initiative is to raise funds aid Bergin with their training programs for service dogs. It is spearheaded by students in the Associate of Science program at Bergin.

On the day, participants may enjoy:

  • On-land paddling instruction
  • On-land dog paddling instruction
  • Dog training tips
  • Refreshment from local businesses
  • Therapy and Service Dogs (from Bergin)

Friday September 21st - Lessons and Paddle Clinic

Concurrently we will be holding a Paddle with your Pup class for those that want to learn how to paddle safely with their four legged friend, and a beginners paddle boarding lesson. Kayaking instruction can also be provided. $45 for either of these options. To book email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..
