Before taking your pet with you lay out your paddle board in your front yard or your backyard letting them sniff and walk on the paddle board. This is so that they can get accustomed to the paddle board. Once you feel that you animal is comfortable around the paddle board you can start with the basic commands of training it to go on and off the board. Once your pets have the commands down pat you can then plan a trip to go and take your pet to the water for the actual ride!
Remember never rush this process you want your pet to feel as comfortable as possible or else they might have negative feelings about paddle boarding with you. Start out in the shallow end so that you can place your pet on the board and let them float on the board right next to you. Let them get use to keeping their balance on the paddle board. Once you feel that your pet is fully acclimated it’s time for you to get on the paddle board and paddle away
