This Famous Surfing Dog Rides The Wave To Helping 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 surf board.
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.
Ricochet has also helped raise over $450,000 to help service members, veterans and their families cope with PTSD and other combat ailments through the Waves of Empowerment program.
Ricochet is as natural riding the waves as she is hanging out with group. Watch her bring smiles and confidence wherever she goes!
