In Southern California, there's now a piece of doggie heaven for canines needing a break from the heat.

A couple has opened the nation's first water park for dogs in the San Fernando Valley city of Sun Valley.

The pooches can even learn to surf on a boogie-board. It also has cascading waterfalls and geysers to keep them cool.

The owners say their dogs gave them the idea for the pet park because their canines love going to the beach to play and swim.
