    Once in a life time experience!

    We had so much fun with our two corgis. Even though none of us had any paddle boarding experience, Samantha made sure we all had a wonderful time. She also took lots of photos and videos for us, priceless!

    Amazing experience!

    Sam was just great! She was able to accommodate me with changing the time of the session to an earlier one, she was very kind and sweet and overall very knowledgeable! THIS IS A MUST TRY WITH YOUR PUP. I will definitely be back soon.

    The best activity in San Diego with your pup!

    Samantha is absolutely amazing! She made the entire lesson and experience so much fun and enjoyable. I had never been able to balance and stand up and she got us to do it during our lesson. She was fantastic with both of our pups and they were able to enjoy the hour on the water.

    Definitely will be joining again soon :)

    SUP with the Pups in San Diego

    This was an awesome experience for both my dogs. Our 1 and half year old malinois mix was all over the place because she wanted to jump in the eater. Which was totally fine cause we wanted her to have fun. And by the end of the lesson Sam was able to get us to stand up paddle board with both dogs on the board. She also had an awesome board that was really sturdy! We can't wait to do it again !

She was professional, showed me all the do’s and don’t! knowledgeable had experience in the craft. Encouraging, she was joyful. She enjoyed our experience with us. Energetic, was agile and experienced at chasing my dog as it was swimming to land and had full control of the situations!!!!! I trusted her completely! She gave me confidence!! My dog had a fabulous time as did I ♥️

    Samantha was professional and helpful, and both our dogs had a blast. She really prioritized making the dogs comfortable with it and not rushing anything.

    Just book it!

    My husband and I took our 2 dogs. None of us have SUPed before. Sam was AMAZING! We all had a great time, even our nervous dog. They can transfer back and forth from board to board if they want, both on one, or one on each. And bonus, Sam sent us some great pics ❤️

    Absolute Blast!

    Neither myself nor my dog had any previous paddle boarding experience. Samantha is an absolutely amazing instructor and she made it so fun and relaxing! My dog was nervous at first but by the end we were both having a wonderful time! We also got a fantastic view, and saw sea lions! 100% would recommend to anyone looking for lessons or learning how to SUP with their dog. We will be back again!

    beyond impressed!

    Yesterday my pup and I took a lesson with another company, so I'm comparing that lesson to today's with Sam(antha) since they were the same price. Both lessons included quality rental equipment, including a dog vest. I've SUPed before, but never with my dog, so yesterday's lesson focused on exposing my dog to this new experience. Sam also continued this focus, while still offering helpful SUP instruction techniques to me, which I really appreciated. While yesterday's was good, today's was GREAT! Sam is a dog whisperer and instructs all lessons herself. She prefers 1-on-1 lessons if you have a dog, whereas the other company is a group. For puppies like mine, having other dogs around is highly distracting, so I preferred the private lesson. Also, you can just tell Sam what you'd like to do and she'll customize the lesson to you accordingly. The area that Sam took us out in was more aesthetically pleasing than the harbor area I paddled in with the other company, and I loved that Sam took photos and videos the whole time, documenting my adventure with my dog and the beautiful day. She even gave us a little graduation certificate and goodie bag for my pup! The other company's credit card transaction thing prompted me to leave a tip and Sam's did not, but she certainly deserves it! I will be returning to rent/take lessons with her in the future. Thanks for such a great time, Sam!

    So fun!

    I had so much fun learning to paddle with my dog. Samantha is a great teacher and had great patience when my dog kept jumping off the board. She offered tips and techniques for paddleboarding with and without a dog. She also sent some great pictures she took along the way.
