EVENT CALENDAR

Some of you know that we host a variety of different events. It was always part of the dream for Tail Wags to also play part in building a community of dog lovers through either social or educational events; even gatherings for fundraising or awareness to support local animal shelters. We’ve been grateful for all the partnerships we started building almost immediately (dog lovers are a dream to work with!), but we also quickly found ourselves with events posted in different places making it hard for our members to get one clear view of all that is going on.

Enter our new Events Calendar. Sounds so basic, but nope – we didn’t have one! (Jake says “no judging please”). We still might use different platforms for RSVPs. For example, we use Eventbrite when tickets need to be sold in advance. But alas! You now have a monthly or list view of any events that we have on our calendar. The goal is to parallel this to our internal one, which is always up to date. That way, if you have a private reservation to make you can also see what days are open.

So there you have it! Bookmark this baby on your phone, tablet, PC, or all. As always, we’re open to your feedback… especially when accompanied by a picture of your pup doing a silly trick. (Just kidding about the latter. Kind of.)

Wag ‘n Learn Training Tips

Wag ‘n Learn Training Tips

Events

WAG ‘N LEARN: /wag, (ə)n, lərn/ 1. A series of events featuring local pet pros who share their expertise with pup lovers. 2. A barktastic made up name.

Almost as soon as we opened, we started to get asked if we’d offer training some day. I’ve used training for Jake before and remember how important it was to find trainers who practice positive reinforcement only and were a good fit for him. As of recently, I’ve also learned that training can be very healthy not just at puppy stage, but also as adults. It can instill confidence in them; stimulate their minds; and most importantly – grow the love they have for you even deeper.

That said, we found an opportunity to support pet pros who specialize in dog behavior/training and bring value to our members! To start, we’re co-hosting Wag ‘n Learns with trainers who will share some basic training tips. They’re 30 minutes, free, dog friendly, and in our lounge. (You might need to plan for some play time before so pup can relax a bit while the humans learn; member levels apply for park use).

*To keep tails wagging, we have to limit the size of these Wag ‘n Learns so please be sure to RSVP.

You will see classes being offered at Tail Wags in the future too. We’re thrilled to have both Elsa and Nicola, who are very good at what they do. If you ever consider training, these Wag ‘n Learns are also a good way to ‘meet the trainer’ and see how they fit with your pup. We hope you can join us!

Breed Meetups

Breed Meetups

Events

Whenever I went dog parks with Jake, something I loved almost as much as watching him play and have fun was also meeting other dog lovers like me – ESPECIALLY parents of terrier breeds. Why? We could instantly relate. Whether it was sharing similar stories about their personalities, or exchanging tips about what ‘worked’ for them; it was always nice to talk to folks who appreciate and love what makes terriers “terriers”.

With that in mind, we decided to start putting regular Breed Meetups on our calendar. So regular in fact, there’s one happening almost weekly. Celebrated breeds get 50% OFF Daily Membership (during event hours only; mostly weekday evenings) and entered into a drawing to win pupprizes! As always, we can’t wait to see both doggies and humans socialize. And who knows, maybe new friendships will be made 🙂

Check out our Facebook Events calendar for these recurring events. These are just some tentative dates we’ve got in plans:

  • May 10th – Goldens
