The Chicago Pet Patrol welcomes all levels of human pup, pet play, and handler experience. We try to utilize venues that share our open and welcoming values, however attendee restrictions and acceptable behaviors may be set at the discretion of the host(s). Our Code of Conduct is enforced at all of our official events, regardless of venue.
Keep in mind that attending events in a public setting (e.g. gaming shops, restaurants, public parks), will likely result in contact with patrons that don’t understand human pups and pet play. Hoods, and select animal behaviors, can be acceptable in public settings as long as you do not cause a disturbance. If you want to wear your hood in public and ‘sit pretty’ for a photo, ask yourself if it seems like the right time or place to do so. Other BDSM gear (e.g. harnesses, revealing clothing) should only be worn in settings where that form of attire is deemed acceptable or encouraged.
You should always abide by any authorities, laws, rules, and polite behaviors in a public setting. Remember that poor behavior and not practicing a ‘right time, right place’ behavior at Chicago Pet Patrol’s events—public or private—could impact our club’s future events and your ability to attend them.
Chicago Pet Patrol’s newsletter will provide you with important announcements, community surveys, calendar overviews, and event descriptions—all at once—in one convenient email per month! We’ll also communicate any last-minute event changes on an as-needed basis.
