Meet the August Woofpup of the Month - Surf Dog Ricochet!

  • Surf Dog Ricochet is an award winning SURFice dog®, that surfs with a purpose and has been named the August Woofpup of the Month! A top placing surf dog competitor, Ricochet is an eight year old golden retriever who surfs with people with disabilities and special needs, serving as an assistive aid and inspiration. She is also a therapy dog, hero dog, and service dog. As the Canine Ambassador for Surfers with Disabilitiesâ„ , Ricochet provides therapeutic assistance to people with special needs, disabilities, wounded warriors, and veterans with PTSD.

    As Ricochet lives as a service dog, she has a remarkable ability to develop deep bonds with those she encounters. She has a strong intuition that allows her to connect with people suffering from physical and emotional changes and is able to make a paws-on healing intervention. Ricochet serves as an inspiration to all those around her.

    In addition to Ricochet’s service duties, she also supports a number of organizations, raising over $457,000 to various charities including Surfin' for Paws-abilities and Puppy Prodigies among many others, all of which can be found here. Ricochet loves being able to paw forward awareness and funds to help others and looks forward to working with Woofpup to continue to do so.

    When Ricochet is not surfing, she loves playing with her sister, Rina. She also loves hanging out with all of her San Diego friends, jumping off docks, playing with balls and chasing birds!

    A custom-Woofpup of Richochet will soon be available in our store and, when it is, we're happy to donate 10% of all Ricochet sales to Puppy Prodigies.
