PUBLIC EVENT DISCLOSURE
Chicago Puppy Patrol welcomes all levels of human pup, pet play, and handler experience. We do not discriminate against beliefs, disabilities, ethnic backgrounds, sexes, genders, sexual orientations, experience levels, or roles. We try to utilize venues that share our open and welcoming values, however restrictions on attendance and/or acceptable behaviors may be set at the discretion of the host(s) prior to the event. Chicago Puppy Patrol’s Code of Conduct is enforced at all our official events, regardless of venue or person’s age.
'RIGHT TIME, RIGHT PLACE' POLICY
Chicago Puppy Patrol loves all our human pups, kitties, horses, wolves, demanding trainers, etc., but not everyone shares our interests. Attending events in a public settings (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 Puppy Patrol’s events—public or private—could impact our club’s future events and your ability to attend them.
There have been a number of changes to the ways you can be involved with Chicago Puppy Patrol over the years. For the sake of inclusion and simplicity, we have moved to recognizing only two (2) types of involvement with the club: the Members and the community (non-Members).
THE COMMUNITY (NON-MEMBERS)
Any attendee of official Chicago Puppy Patrol events—public or private—that is 18+ years of age. We do not keep a community registry. Regularly attending official events will allow us to better-recognize and engage with you. Our community is diverse and extends across the United States, therefore we require no degree of commitment to being part of it—we simply appreciate your support and hope to see you being involved!
Not ready or able to to attend our events? Connect with us on social media!
Any individual that is 18+ years of age and pays the annual dues* associated with Chicago Puppy Patrol membership. There are always some exclusive incentives offered for Members which are outlined when registering, with the official membership lasting to the end of the year in which is was paid. Our Members range from young pups to old dogs, curious kittens to cranky cats, handlers, adjacent supporters, and everyone in between.
* Dues are not meant to be an exclusionary measure, therefore anyone that is unable to afford or commit to annual dues is eligible to have their dues waived until a time which they are able to afford or commit.
