The general route will be similar to the below with the exception that we’ll be walking on the west side of the 30ft pool at the start instead of the east. The route is a mixed of groomed walking paths and forest trail.

IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT

Dearest VAN-PAH,

Due to an active request from One Stop Shop Games, it has been decided to put Board Games night on hiatus. This is due to low attendance and we should not be sat indoors but enjoying the wonderful Vancouver weather.

Board Games night will return in The Fall, so stay tuned for more information in the coming months.

Yours Barkingly,
VAN-PAH

VAN-PAH Reminder

VAN-PAH Members, this month and for the next couple of Howls, would like to reiterate that ALL VAN-PAH events adhere to the same rules and practices, before, during and after. One rule in particular is important for every Event, Social and Mosh.

Consent is not just mandatory, it’s sexy!

If anyone ever approaches you and does an action/something you are uncomfortable with, tell them NO. If you can’t tell them no, then let a Friend, Staff or VAN-PAH board member know, it is important that this behavior be stopped as we want everyone and all to be welcome. The Events, Social and Moshes are your safe space and we wish to keep them that way.

Please don’t be quiet and howl it to the moon.

NO! I do not give consent.

PAH Tour 2019

**From your friendly neighbourhood NightCat**

Wow I can’t believe 2019 is already here and with it this will now be our 3rd year of PAH Tour.

Since then the PAH Tour has turned into a huge event of community support and a celebration of the entire NW community.

What is PAH Tour you may be asking yourself? Well it’s a full month puppy event supporting each of our local communities. That’s right 3 cities and 3 moshes. This year we are bringing it to the month of February.

September Mosh

Mosh Time

Join the pups and Handlers of VAN-PAH for our regular monthly mosh!
Saturday September 1st from 2:00pm – 4:00pm @ PumpJack, 1167 Davie St, Vancouver

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. 

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