Whether you want 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.

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

We will have our regular mosh area closed off to make it our own private space. Wear what makes your tail wag. Normal safety rules are in effect with regard to spikes, hard soled shoes, etc. on the mats.

Nudity is allowed at this event but only on the mosh mats. When off the mat area underwear/jocks and shoes must be worn. Please keep in mind that sexual play is not permitted as we still need to follow bar rules in that regard.

Don’t have a membership yet? You will be able to get one at the event so come on down and join us!

VAN-PAH Reminders

To continue to be Good Animals and Handlers, we do have to make just a few additional reminders:
  • Please do not consume outside food or drink in the Pumpjack. We have been told that some of our members have been bringing in outside food and drink, as empty packaging has been found. Our host venue works hard not just for us, but also its other patrons.
  • When on the mats, please only wear clean, soft-sole shoes if you decide to keep your shoes on. The mats are delicate and expensive, and we hope that members are able to mosh on mats that are in the best shape possible.
  • 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!
