Course Description

Perfect for stand up paddlers and dog lovers – our petfriendly paddling course offers a fun, new outdoor experience with your best friend.

During this lesson, paddlers will learn the fundamentals and safety techniques for successful paddling with their dogs. Beginning with land training, our instructors will cover critical skills, such as how to get your pup on the board, how to use a leash effectively while paddling, how to maintain balance, and how to safely start out on the water. Our instructors will also review proper fitting for a life vest (PFD) for your dog. Pup life jackets are highly recommended.

Once paddlers and pups are confident and comfortable, we'll venture into shallow water, launching a truly unforgettable "doggie paddle" experience. Don't miss it!

All necessary paddling equipment is provided.

Note One well-behaved and socialized dog per participant. Please bring a current copy of rabies vaccine record.

Our trips and tours are led by experienced guides who are passionate about the great outdoors and excited to share a new adventure with you. Please join us today.

L.L.Bean does not usually cancel events due to inclement weather. However, we reserve the right to cancel an event at any time due to severe weather, low enrollment or other concerns. If L.L.Bean cancels your event, you will receive a full refund for the cost of your reservation.

Cancellation and Rescheduling Policy

*Synthetic clothing dries quickly and is the best choice for outdoor pursuits. Please do not wear cotton clothing. When wet, cotton rapidly robs the heat from your body and takes a long time to dry. We also recommend you dress in multiple layers, allowing you more flexibility to comfortably respond to the weather conditions and your level of exertion.

†Please call ahead if you plan to use your own equipment as it must pass inspection by L.L.Bean staff before use. If it's deemed unsuitable, we will provide you with the necessary equipment.
