On a hot Sydney beach, Australian dog trainer and former surfing champion, Chris de Aboitiz, is passing on his skills to man's best friend. Chris has been riding his surfboard with his four dogs for around ten years, and hits the waves almost every day with Max, Murph, Rama and Millie.

Chris learned Rama and Millie, the two rescue dogs, to perform amazing tricks as they surf and they are joining Chris on his daily surfing adventure.

Watch as these adorable dogs stand on the paddle board and use their balancing skills to stay on board. They don’t just tag along for the ride, but they actually work the waves and paddle through!

Chris says that it is all about the discipline. It is just like raising a child. When they are on the surfboard they are not allowed to move, they can be curious, but they are not allowed to move. When Chris is surfing with the dogs, they are allowed to look around, but not do what they want to do.
Chris and his four dogs travel on the east coast of Australia, teaching owners how to better handle their pets with his unique method. Namely, they are traveling the coast, not only surfing, but also going to rescue centers and educating the volunteers and the staff to not only give love but to give love and structure. While some of those he meets are keen to get in the waves, a fair number of pooches prefer to keep their form only on the sand.

Dog surfing involves dogs that are trained to surf on surfboards, bodyboards, skimboards, windsurf boards or to bodysurf. Historically, surfing dogs have been documented as occurring as early as the 1920s in the United States. Competitions and exhibitions that feature surfing dogs have occurred in various coastal areas of the United States.
