February 2020 Howl


We have a lot planned for you this month. Don’t forget to checkout/subscribe to the calendar!

It’s that time of year again! NW PAH is super excited to present the 2020 NW-PAH Tour!
All three PAH groups in the Northwest Region have lots planned, so make a friend, carpool, share a hotel room, and have lots of fun as we make our way throughout the region.


VAN-PAH Puppy-Tails Social

Friday, January 31st, 8:00pm until late
@ Pumpjack Pub, 1167 Davie St, Vancouver

Come on out for a social evening with everyone from our puppy and pet community. We’ll be meeting in the back area, that is our space for the evening. Wear your leather, rubber, fuzzy, or whatever other gear you want. Of course gear is admired but never required. Having fun is the only requirement.

DJ starts around 10pm for those that want to dance. Spread the word and lets all have a fun time!

PAH Tour – Saturday Brunch

Saturday, February 1st, 10:00am – 2:00pm
@ The Capital, 1178 Davie St, Vancouver

Get ready for a day of moshing and friends with brunch at The Capital on Davie Street!

PAH Tour – Handler Round Table 2020
Presented by Sir J, NW Handler 2020

Saturday, February 1st, 1:00pm – 2:00pm
@ Pumpjack Pub, 1167 Davie St, Vancouver

Identity: What is it to you to be a handler and how do you show it?

Come join Werel Wolf and Sir J in a round table conversation as we explore different topics on what it is to each of us to be a handler and how we can build stronger bonds with each other, our pup/pet companions, and the wider communities we are a part of.

VAN-PAH January Mosh

Saturday, February 1st, 2:00pm – 4:00pm
@ Pumpjack Pub, 1167 Davie St, Vancouver

Join the pups and handlers of VAN-PAH for our special PAH Tour mosh!

Whether you are going to romp, socialize, or just explore, come on out and have some fun!

A mosh is an opportunity for pups and handlers to get together and socialize. You’ll find pups romping around, playing with toys, and having an all around blast while handlers socialize and play with the puppies.

We will have a special handler roundtable before the mosh, and Sir J will be raffling off a chainmail harness in VAN-PAH colours as a fundraiser. Don’t miss this extra special mosh!

*Always remember puppy gear is admired but never required! WAGS!

VAN-PAH Reminders

To continue to be Good Animals and Handlers, we do have to make just a few additional reminders:

  • Please no outside food or drinks be brought into Pumpjack. We have been told that some of our members have been bringing in outside food/drinks into PJ’s, as empty packaging has been found. We are sorry to mention this, but our host venue work’s hard not just for us, but also it’s other patrons and we need to look after our venue.
  • When not on the mats please remember to wear shoes on your feet, this not only protects your paws from broken glass, various individuals from stepping on toes and of course from getting hurt. This is also a bar requirement and not something we can chose to ignore.
  • Gear is admired, but not required to attend any and all of VAN-PAH’s events.
  • Consent is not just mandatory, it is also sexy!
