VetShopAustralia Surfing Dog Spectacular - March 5

Back to when it all began in 2012, the first ever Surfing Dogs started as a playful workshop in the still waters of Noosa Dog Beach. 

Fast forward to six years later and the Surfing Dog Spectacular is now known as the famous event in the Noosa Festival of Surfing, attracting a crowd of thousands. 

This year's line-up is the biggest yet, with eight official "hydro hounds" in the running for the "Best Wave" title and it is anticipated that there won't be an inch of shoreline to spare!

The newly-releasted Seresto flea and tick collar (Bayer) will be the co-sponsor of the 2017 Surfing Dog Spectacular.

Leading the pack for another year running is none other than surfing dog trainer extraordinaire and former world tandem surfing champion, Chris De Aboitiz

But along with the cuteness and popularity, De Aboitiz brings the strong message that every dog deserves a loving home. All of his surfing team are rescue dogs, abandoned or strays, adopted from shelters and trained as part of his pack. “Any dog can be trained,” insists De Aboitiz, and his troupe of strays and rescue dogs is testament to this message. “There are ways to bond and understand your dog which are quick and easy.”
