Sarasota Polo Club in collaboration with Southeastern Guide Dogs is pleased to introduce Mason Chukker, their 2020 Polo Season Mascot. Mason Chukker is an adorable nine-month-old yellow Labrador Retriever and, bundle-of-energy, who is training to be a future guide or service dog for Southeastern Guide Dogs based out of Palmetto, Florida.
Mason Chukker will be joining the Sarasota Polo Club onsite at Sunday Polo at the Sarasota Polo Club periodically throughout the polo season, while he’s learning basic manners, obedience and social skills on his way to becoming a life-changing guide dog for someone with vision loss or a service dog for a veteran with PTSD or other disabilities.
Mason Chukker was born and bred at Southeastern Guide Dogs, to do great things and when he’s about two years old, Mason Chukker will return to the Palmetto Southeastern Guide Dogs campus to complete his formal training at Canine University. The Sarasota Polo Club is proud to share a part of Mason Chukker’s journey with Sarasota Polo Club fans, as he grows into a well-rounded sportsman, and eventually becomes a life-changing superhero.
Young Sarasota Polo fans are encouraged to seek out Mason Chukker at Sunday Polo throughout the season and ask for his trading card and “paw-to-graph” or take Mason Chukker home with you by visiting the Sarasota Polo Gift Shop for a Mason Chukker stuffed animal (all proceeds to benefit Southeastern Guide Dogs).
