  1. Those dogs wouldn’t have stayed on if they didn’t want to. They were just maintaining their balances… You couldn’t get my dogs on there for anything, they sure wouldn’t have ridden all the way in.

  2. Dogs will do anything to please their masters, but I agree with Tony, none of these dogs looks like s/he’s enjoying this. Therefore, I didn’t enjoy it.

  3. The dogs are concentrating on keeping their balances on the board. They are not afraid. If they were, they wouldn’t be going back again and again.

    My brother used to take our black Lab windsurfing. She loved it. She couldn’t get out on the board fast enough, and usually stayed on longer than my brother did 🙂 .

    I have a German shepherd/husky mix that I occasionally take kayaking on the bay. And he loves that, too.
