WATCH: This Famous Surfing Dog Rides the Waves to Help Others

Ricochet is one of the most world-famous, award-winning surf dogs who loves the sport, but most importantly SURFS WITH PURPOSE! She surfs solo, with children, adults, pros, celebrities, other dogs! But her most important role is the work she does to help kids with a variety of disabilities in their healing process by experiencing the joy of being on a surfboard. Her owner Judy likes to refer to her as a "SURFice" dog instead of a service dog. Ricochet is the only SURFice dog® on the planet who provides therapeutic assistance while creating unique surfing experiences that empower kids with special needs, people with disabilities, wounded warriors & veterans with PTSD.
