24th Annual Dog Challenge & Surfing Competition at Huntington

Few most talented dog surfers and their trainers participated in a competition this month in Huntington Beach at the 24th Annual Incredible Dog Challenge and Surf Competition.

Alecia Nelson said that her dog Gidget was born for something like this. “It is a joy to have with your dog, you know, and I think many people will be related to that because I was a competitive person myself in the sports. So, I wanted to do something with the dogs, and that’s where we get out of the relationship.”

The judges for the event divided the score sheet into four different categories: style, confidence, size of the wave, and length of the ride.

Anthony Pura, one of the judges told KCAL9’s, “We saw one of the dogs turning around and facing the other way and then turning right back around. We saw a couple of floaters out there by several dogs. So, we’re adding to the style points.”

The surf competition is part of Purina’s Incredible Dog Challenge, which is put on to bring people and their pets closer together.

The event also had dogs competing in freestyle flying discs. The event also consisted of agility, weave pole racing, and diving dogs.
