IPAHW 2019 is in the history books!
The spirit of the weekend is something that will be looked upon fondly for years, and we mean that whole-heartedly.  
Amidst your fond memories (or regrets for having missed out), we have opened up 2020 registration at 2019 prices.  Please note that the hotel rooms will be reserved off of our own website for 2020, but must be paid in advance! 

There IS an option to spread the room payments out over 6 months!
Book early, as the hotel is almost 50% sold out!

Mission Statement/Code of Conduct

Code of Conduct.


International Puppy and Handler Weekend (IPAHW) is committed to making its events a safe and welcoming environment.  IPAHW wants each attendee to understand that consent, inclusion, and safety are active choices and not just passive assumptions.  Our space is open and welcoming to any and all Human Pets, Trainer/Handlers, Admirers, and those expressing curiosity about the scene in a respectful manner.  To help with this understanding, we have put together a few basic guidelines and things to consider:



  1. Always ask for permission to touch people and/or their property.  To help make things easier, IPAHW has provided two color-coded wristbands.  Green means 'hugs and social touching is ok.' Red means, 'ask before any physical contact. If someone is without a wristband or their wristband isn't visible, always assume that verbal consent is required.  Sexual or suggestive contact should always be negotiated.

  2. This space is provided to help explore and enjoy the Human Pet scene. Those who share our space need to be aware that there may be blatant displays of kink and sexuality. If this kind of open environment is of concern, we would recommend that you not attend.


  1. Discriminatory behaviour will not be tolerated.

  2. Do not shame the interests of others (sexual or otherwise) in word, action, or behaviour.

  3. Do not shame people’s bodies or self expression in word, action or behaviour.


  1. Do not photograph anyone who has not given you express consent.  Be mindful that not everyone has the luxury of having home and work lives that are safe from discrimination.  If you accidentally snap someone in the background, crop or edit them out. There is an event photographer who will be taking photos and doing their best to blur out those who do not consent.

  2. Do not tag people on social media without their consent.

Next year's dates are July 9-12, 2020

The Waterfront Hotel and Conference Center (2930 Waterfront Parkway) will again be the IPAHW host hotel.  The Waterfront has a very long history of community support.  We have negotiated a room rate that allows us to rent out the entire hotel from Thursday, July 9-Sunday, July 12.
A multi-million dollar renovation project will be completed by our 2020 event dates.  We can't wait to see the updates!

For 2020, the hotel rooms will be booked directly from the IPAHW website.  While payment is needed in advance, full refunds will be given for cancellations until July 1.
