Surfing snowboarding and skateboarding Bulldog
Ron Davis is the owner of this English Bulldog, Tillman, living in Oxnard California.
Tillman’s favorite Activity is Skateboarding, skimboarding, snowboarding, surfing, teatherball,
wrestling with buddies Rose, Sully and Wally.
Tillman is anything but ordinary. Tillman lives to skateboard.
He is the greatest skateboarding dog on the planet, in many of his fans opinion.
He is self propelled and has more energy than a power plant. In 2008, Tillman mastered skimboarding on hot days and actually snowboarded in the winter.
Tillman has definitely become the “extreme sports dog”. He loves to shag baseballs during little league batting practice and often acts more like a retriever rather than a bulldog because of his incredible endurance.
The 60-pound dog even turns and does tricks. “He just pulled a no-comply, top-shove-it move that we got on tape,” says Tillman’s owner, 40-year-old Ron Davis, as the bulldog showed off his skills in Tompkins Square Park in New York. Tillman traveled from Southern California for the “Bark in the Park” event,
“He just pulled a no-comply, top-shove-it move that we got on tape,” says Davis, who has also trained Tillman to surf and snowboard. “What can I say? He’s an adrenaline junkie.” Named after the late NFL star and U.S. Army Ranger Pat Tillman, the board-crazy canine set the world record in 2009 by rolling 100 meters in 19.6 seconds.
The World’s Fastest Skateboarding Dog became the official “spokes-dog” for Natural Balance during the 2009 Tournament of Roses ® Parade, where he skateboarded along the 52-foot track on the Natural Balance float.
Because of his increased popularity, Tillman, the Fastest Skateboarding Dog in the world, makes appearances at special events across the country.
Some key stats about Tillman: He weighs about 60 pounds; his favorite toy is a skateboard; and his favorite food is apples. At 9 months, he was skateboarding on all fours and by 15 months he was turning. This adventurous dog also snowboards, skimboards and surfs.
