Forget the doggie paddle these dogs can surf!

Posted: Updated:
SAN DIEGO - It was a beautiful day to cool off in the ocean especially if you were able to spend it with your four-legged friend.

The Helen Woodward Animal Center put on surfing and paddleboarding lessons for dogs Saturday morning in San Diego.

Organizers explain why dog owners should give surfing with their dogs a try.

"The thing is, dogs are part of our families, that's what we believe at Helen Woodward Animal Center. And they just want to be with their family all the time, so if you're out there surfing, if you're enjoying the beach, then they just want to be out there with you," said Mindy Wright, Helen Woodward special events assistant.

Proceeds of Saturday's event went to animal care and programs at the Helen Woodward Animal Center.
