It is hard to keep man’s best friend down, or in this case off her surfboard.

Booker D. Surfdog, if not the most explosive new canine athlete to emerge from the American scene, is proud to announce her upcoming “Man’s Best Friend Summer Surfdog Tour” and a new partnership with Solid Gold® Holistic Pet Nutrition.

With the support of Solid Gold, Booker will travel to Southern California to compete for the surfing trophy at the Unleashed by Petco Surf Dog Competition in San Diego, California.

Booker, beside her rescued human, Adam “Pops” Steinberg the father of East coast dog surfing, has been riding the lower 48 since she was a little pup.

“Pops” thinks it is fitting and appropriate that Booker is powered by Solid Gold Pet, which has been delivering trusted, holistic recipes in the U.S. for more than 40 years. Solid Gold’s recipes are crafted with high-quality meat protein to provide a nutrient dense protein source for active dogs like Booker D. Unlike other pet food brands, Solid Gold’s formulas never include meat by-product meal, corn, wheat, soy, added artificial flavors or contain source ingredients from China.

Steinberg says that whether Booker is plowing through the pounding seashore, trailblazing an old forest, or chasing squirrels under a zip line, one thing is sure, she’ll be hungry afterwards, waiting for her bowl of Solid Gold® Holistic Pet Nutrition.

“Booker always has a belly full of the best ingredients that can be found. Featuring a variety of new formulas, the Solid Gold line offers novel proteins like bison, venison, duck, quail, rabbit or Alaskan Pollock,” said Steinberg.

Pops adds that all of the Solid Gold dry recipes include healthy superfoods including kelp, carrots, blueberries, lentils and more. Since a healthy diet is key with an athlete like Booker, she needs to be powered with carefully balanced nutrition.

The wave-carving crew, known as Team Surfdog on Facebook, includes her intrepid sister Onyx Shorepound Surfdog.

The two will be starting their summer tour with stops at Unleashed by Petco retail locations near Dallas, Texas. The crew will make their first appearance on Saturday July 25, in the Lakewood region from 11:30 a.m. through 2 p.m. followed by an appearance at the Park Lane location from 4 p.m. through 6 p.m. and will round out the trip with a final stop on Sunday at the Northview location from 11a.m. through 1 p.m.

with a pit stop at Barlow Adventures in Sedona, Arizona on their way to their ultimate destination of the Surfdog event sponsored by Unleashed by Petco competition in San Diego, California.

The super-sized canine surf tour ends festively on Labor Day with a mysterious splash in Daytona Beach, Florida.

When asked whether Booker might be concerned about facing off with the Best of the West in the Surfdog competition, Pops shrugs and keeps the summer attitude going: “Nah, we’ll just bake ’em or BBQ ’em.”

Though there will be plenty of good times and lots of smiles on the tour, Team Surfdog will be sharing their serious side as well by promoting one of the nation’s oldest dog rescues, the Humane Society of Columbia, South Carolina, founded in 1902, with the primary mission to end animal cruelty, neglect and overpopulation.

These issues hit home with Pops Steinberg:

“…We deal with a lot of different animal rescues, but we focus on No Kill shelters. I am really impressed with the spay & neuter programs that the Humane Society of Columbia is working on, and I believe that one day they will be able to achieve a No Kill Columbia. They are definitely doing their job to ensure that people understand that the euthanasia of healthy, adaptable animals is unacceptable and must be put to an end. I believe that Booker’s new partnership with Solid Gold Pet might just have all the right ingredients to reflect the unconditional love and nutrition that we would expect our best friends to receive.”

Booker D. Surfdog will be documenting her trip on social media using #solidgoldpets and #foodforfreepsirits and include live look-ins on the Solid Gold channel on the Periscope app.
