New tricks

I got word — and awesome video — this week from Buddy the surfing dog. I met this canine master of the boogie and long boards while writing Unleashed: Climbing Canines, Hiking Hounds, Fishing Fidos, and Other Daring Dogs. I am thrilled to see he’s still shredding the waves in Ventura. My big takeaway from time spent with Buddy and his surfing pal, Bruce Hooker, was that some “tricks” aren’t achieved through training or coaxing with treats. Plenty of dogs like Buddy will join their people in surprising adventures when they see there’s fun to be had.
