Frequently asked questions

What should/can I wear?


You might be thinking that to be a pup and attend Kennel Klub you'll need the very latest in chic Milano pup fashion; But you couldn't be more wrong. A simple t-shirt, jeans and knee pads is all it takes. Obviously many pups do choose to add a hood, harnesses, bandana, latex clothing, fursuits, collars and/or mitts; but to enjoy yourself and to let out your inner pup none of that is needed. Pop along to a kennel klub and see for yourself!




When and where does Kennel Klub happen?


Kennel Klub is held on the first Saturday of every month in Machgester at BarPop on Canal Street. from 1pm till 5pm. You can usually find some waggy licky puppers and doggos in Via next door from around 12pm for the Kennel Klub premeet.
