Our team

Meet the team behind the brand!

Surfing Dog Championships

Back in 2012, the first ever VetShopAustralia Surfing Dogs started out as a playful workshop in the still waters of Noosa Dog Beach. Now the most popular event of the entire Noosa Festival of Surfing, the Surfing Dog Championships draws an audience in their thousands. Our exceptionally talented hydro-hounds and their masters shred the waves of First Point on Noosa main beach and it sure is a sight not to be missed! Leading the pack for another year running is none other than surfing dog trainer extraordinaire and former world tandem surfing champion, Chris De Aboitiz.
