Hey Wet Dogs,
We hate to do things without our dogs, don't you?
This event is just for them.
What: We’ll paddle with our dogs from Philipe Park to Safety Harbor Marina with our dogs in tow for a fun, exciting for them and you paddle.
Where: Philipe Park Boat Ramp
Dog criteria: Do to the size of most kayaks cockpits, safety for you and your dog, we'll have to limit the size of your dog for the paddle to 65 lbs and under for kayak rentals. If you have your own kayak and feel you can fit fido who's a little larger go ahead. Dogs must be well behaved and have their shots as well as spayed or neutered. NO AGGRESSIVE DOGS PLEASE! If you can't make the paddle with your dog you're welcome to paddle without a dog or to meet us at the Whistle Stop afterwards for lunch.
Paddle difficulty: Lol, that all depends on your dog. Our dog "Kaya" likes to drag her paw in the water. Always makes for an interesting paddle. Approx. 1.5 mile paddle from the park to the marina. Note: Some dogs like to jump out, so perhaps those who don't have a dog can assist with a doggie rescue if needed.
So sign up now and and SHOW US YOUR WET DOG! Doggie PFD's (personal floatation device) are recommended. Wet Dog Supporters get 10% off at "The Whistle Stop" after the paddle.
Cost: $32.10 (includes kayak rentals and gear and tax) FREE if bringing your own kayak.
Bring: water for you and the dogs, sunscreen, heel strap sandals or water shoes, NO FLIPFLOPS, appropriate paddling clothing, hat for sun protection, money for the Whistle Stop Grill and Bar.
