The Control Group Pups Ride the Surf

The dogs of The Control Group hit the waves in preparation for the Helen Woodward Surf Dog Surf-A-Thon competition, which is set to take place on September 11th. Leia, June Bug, and Macey participated in this year's surf lessons at the Del Mar Dog Beach.


The water was warm, and the waves were perfect. After some hesitation, all the pups seemed to be naturals on a surfboard. With the help of their doggy parents, volunteers, and instructors, they were up and hanging 10 in no time.

The Helen Woodward Surf Dog Surf-A-Thon was created to raise awareness and vital funding for orphan pets at Helen Woodward Animal Center. Our partnership with HWAC is extra special because of our dog-friendly offices. TCG has also helped with the preparations and sponsored their Spring Fling Gala. We also helped in updating their website (soon to be released).
This will be the second year that the canines of TCG compete in the surf competition. Can’t wait for our pups to bring home the gold on September 11th in Del Mar.
