Inspiring Video of Ricochet – a Surf-ice Dog


Having raised a service dog myself, I can deeply relate to the desire for the dog one is raising to *become* a service dog.  Not all dogs are natural at it, and many are released from their programs.  Here is a great example of a trainer who found a better solution

Service Surf Dog Ricochet

Ricochet was a puppy prodigy. From the moment she was born, she was training to become a service dog for a person with a disability. As she grew, it was clear her talents were undeniable; but her free, youthful spirit could not be contained – Ricochet would give in to her instincts to run playfully and chase birds and small animals. A definite no-no for a service dog. Rather than push harder to make Ricochet something she was not or give up on her entirely, her trainer had the heart and vision to see that Ricochet’s special talents and energy could be used to help in other ways. Turns out Ricochet’s unique gift is surfing! Watch the story of how Ricochet became a SURFice dog helping charitable foundations and people with disabilities.

Paw-abunga!
