SEA-PAH Events for the Week of February 5th
SEA-PAH Meet and Sniff Social, Friday the 9th, 9pm
Every month, SEA-PAH gets together at our home bar, The Cuff, to unwind and socialize with old friends, packmates, and meet new members who may become old friends and packmates. This is one of our highest-attended events and sees Pups and Handlers of all types coming together to chat, dance, and howl away at the moon all night long.
Love is in the air as we kick off our annual Puppytines Day celebrations with the monthly social. Dress up in your fancy clothes and gear and enjoy the romance with your loved ones, or meet someone new to celebrate our favorite puppy love based holiday with!
This is a 21+ event
Puppytines Mosh, Saturday the 10th, 2pm
We are bringing back one of our annual favorites with the Puppytines Mosh. Puppy love continues to fill the air with a romantic photo booth for you and your favorite pup while our normal mosh continues with a little extra heart.
The public moshes are open to the entire community. If you are a pup and want to try socializing with your fellow pups for the first time, this a great way to do it. The atmosphere is casual, relaxed and fun. There are high-quality mats set out on the dance floor for pups to play on, and so many great toys to chew on and make squeak!
If you are a handler there are many other handlers there to talk with, get ideas from and help corral the pups while they play!
At every mosh we have a quiet area set up with a separate set of mats. While the main set of mats can get quite rambunctious, the quiet area is there for the pups who just want to chill for a minute between playtime, or have quiet alone time with another pup or handler.
The mosh is held at The Cuff Complex.
This is a 21+ event
Monthly Board Meeting, Saturday the 10th, 5pm
Show some love for the board and join us after the Puppytines Day mosh for our monthly board meeting. This will be the first board meeting of the new board and all members are encouraged to attend.
The board meeting is held at The Cuff Complex at 5pm immediately following the monthly mosh.

Volunteer Opportunity: SEA-PAH 2018 Kennels
New year, new board, new kennels! SEA-PAH members are always encouraged to take an active role in their SEA-PAH experience. one of the most rewarding ways to do so is to join one of the SEA-PAH kennels (committees) to help plan individual events or have an ongoing voice in year-round needs of the organization.
Kennel members will be awarded service kennel points for their service to the organization and will have a direct impact on the direction SEA-PAH takes this year. If you are interested in joining any of the kennels listed below, click on its name to send an email to the chair of that kennel.
Puppy Relations Kennel – The PR Kennel will assist in writing, editing, and distribution of official PR statements and letters from the SEA-PAH board as well as assist in moderating SEA-PAH social media.
Volunteer Kennel – The Volunteer Kennel will assist in organizing SEA-PAH volunteers and tracking Service Kennel hours and points.
LEEP Kennel – That’s right! We are bringing back LEEP (The League of Extraordinarily Educated Puppies) and plan on bringing multiple educational classes regarding puppy play and the greater kink community to our membership this year. This kennel will help organize classes, arrange for teachers, and flesh out topics.
Tech Kennel – The Tech Kennel will help oversee the technical aspects of SEA-PAH to ensure the website, emails, and other technologies stay up and running all year round.
Telegram Kennel – The official SEA-PAH Telegram chat has become a great way for our members, and non-members, to bark at each other to make plans for events, carpool arrangements, and generally get to know the community. The chat has grown and so has the need for moderators. The Telegram kennel will work with the board to help moderate the Telegram barkroom fairly and within the rules and processes of the room.
Be a Bigger Part of SEA-PAH!
This year, we would love to see our membership help SEA-PAH become more than it is. So far, we have had a few of our members (two this month!) plan events for our organization and community, and we have been happy to include those events on the SEA-PAH calendar and in the Howl. If you would like to arrange events for the SEA-PAH membership that you would like to see happen, please let us know! We are happy to help promote it in the Howl and add it to the official SEA-PAH calendar as long as it does not violate any of SEA-PAH’s bylaws or rules. You can email Puppy Relations with your event by the 25th of each month for it to be included in the Howl, on the website, and on the official SEA-PAH calendar.
We also want to see things from your perspective! If you would like to write on puppy play, have poetry or a short story about the community, artwork that embodies puppy play to you, or just have an unique perspective within the community, you can be featured in the Howl! Puppy Relations is currently accepting submissions for “Group Howl” which will feature writings and interviews of SEA-PAH members every month that we have submissions to use. You can email your ideas to Puppy Relations for consideration.
