Paddleboarding With Your Pup

At the Humane Society of Charlotte, pet safety is one of our primary concerns. We do everything we can to educate our wonderful community on the many important issues related to pet ownership, and today we want to draw attention to a topic that's becoming increasingly important — paddleboarding safety for dogs.

Stand up paddleboarding (SUP) is currently one of the fastest-growing sports in the world, and it's a wonderful activity that can be enjoyed by the entire family (including your pup!). Paddleboarding is a safe, low-impact sport that is easy to learn and has numerous health benefits. It's also a great, pet-friendly way to get out on the water and enjoy the beautiful outdoors.

While paddleboarding is a safe and enjoyable activity that you can do with your dog, there are some important safety precautions that should be taken before you paddle out with your pup. In an effort to educate more paddlers on this vital topic, Jason at has put together a fun infographic on how to safely paddle board with your dog. These easy-to-follow safety tips will keep your dog safe and maximize the amount of fun you have while out on the water!
