Pet Play

Join us for a workshop of exploration into this fun, connected, and often misunderstood type of play. Let rabbit/Spike and his handler take you on a ‘walk’ through the world of puppy, kitty, and other animal play. Learn about various animal types, gear, making the most of your play space, choosing toys, and more. This engaging workshop includes discussion and ends in a live demo and will take place immediately before the Pet Park with other animals and their handlers, so you can stay and play. You're welcomed to bring a pillow or towel for curling up, toys you don't mind sharing, and human safe treats. This workshop event is for everyone - unowned pets/strays and unpartnered handlers are certainly welcome to attend!
