Intro to SUP with your Pup:

In June we had our first “SUP with your PUP” event. This first class was designed to introduce you and your pup to the SUP board on land! Our second SUP with your PUP event is August 18th and it will also be co-hosted with Andrea Bogle of Animal Smart Training.

We will be offering semi-private lessons to train your pup to get comfortable on the SUP board. We will work on balance, behaviors and cues for a smooth ride, and talk about how to discourage unwanted SUP behaviors (jumping overboard, running around and pushing you in) 😊.

Lessons will take place at the Gulf Coast Humane Society Dog Park with the first available session starting at 9am. Lessons will be 30 minutes long and involve training on land and in water. We will have two boards in the pool and one on land to work with and dogs will rotate to all the different SUP stations. Each lesson will have two instructors and 2-3 dogs per lesson.

For clients who have not been to the dog park at the humane society, the pool is nice and shallow so it is a super safe and great place to practice SUPing for pups. Spaces are limited and we are opening this event up to AST clients first, so if you plan on attending, send an e-mail to Andrea@AnimalSmartTraining.com to get registered and save your spot! The cost is $30 per dog-handler team. No prior experience needed.

SUP Pilates/Barre Fusion with Heather McVay

Heather McVay is back on August 5th at 6pm for our second SUP Pilates/Barre Fusion class of the summer! This class combines mat Pilates and barre fitness on a Stand Up Paddleboard on the water plus a portion of class will be on the upper deck to get the most burn out of the barre!

Heather will teach you to use your core balance and stabilize yourself on a paddleboard. The paddle will be used in the SUP Barre classes to help balance, burn and stabilize. These classes also help develop flexibility, balance and stamina.
At the start of each class, Water Dog will provide safety and basic paddle instructions. Classes are modified for beginners to advanced. Most important is having fun and enjoying the unique water environment of this class
