San Diego, CA (PRWEB) March 21, 2013
The 2013 Loews Coronado Surf Dog Competition is unleashing the fun with new friends from Unleashed by Petco. Whether catching a wave with a furry friend or seeking fun on the beach with friends and family, this year’s attendees can expect a fun-filled day at the “2013 Loews Surf Dog Competition- Unleashed by Petco.”
This year’s competition—held on June 22, 2013 in a new location in Imperial Beach, adjacent to the pier—is expected to draw up to 40 surf dogs and thousands of spectators from across the U.S.
New activities include:
Now in its eighth year, this popular canine competition is an extension of Loews Hotels & Resorts award-winning Loews Loves Pets program and has become a hugely successful fundraiser for non-profit organizations. For the second consecutive year, the event will benefit the ASPCA® (American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals). The ASPCA® is the first humane organization established and is a national leader in the areas of anti-cruelty, community outreach and animal health services.
Each competitor will have 10 minutes to catch his or her top two waves, and will be scored on confidence level, length of ride and overall ability to “grip it and rip it.” In addition to endless bragging rights, the winner of the Ultimate Champion Round will win a ‘VIP Pup’ two-night stay in luxury accommodations at Loews Coronado Bay and an Unleashed by Petco prize package.
Attendance is free and open to the public. The cost to enter the competition is $50 for singles and $55 for teams. Registration opens April 1, 2013 and is expected to sell out. Out-of-town guests can take advantage of a special $189 guestroom rate at the pet-friendly Loews Coronado Bay Resort, based on availability.
