Dog Masters 2022 in Poole, Dorset features owners appearing as the Queen and Scooby Doo among others.

Pups and their owners have taken to the sea in the UK’s annual Dog Surfing Championships. Familiar faces such as the Queen and Scooby Doo made a splash alongside their canines as some competitors chose to dress up for the Dog Masters 2022 event.

Dogs were pictured helping their owners on the paddle boards on Saturday as they fought for a winning spot in the competition at Branksome Dene Chine beach in Poole, Dorset.

One competitor, Elizabeth Wilkinson, headed for the waves as the Queen in a white gown, grey wig and crown. Wilkinson was joined by her dog Diogie as the pair were pictured racing across the beach to the finish line.

Another person could be seen paddling in a Scooby Doo onesie. And one dog sported a shark fin, which was attached to its lifejacket. The contest, which is an all-day event with live music, is now in its fourth year.
