Judging the contest will be Mr. Leatherman Toronto 2016 Jeremy Feist (left), Toronto Puppy 2016 “Pup Benny” (center), and International Person of Leather 2016/Ms. Leather Toronto 2016 Shahrazad (right).

The “Best In Show” Contest is a fun non-title contest where up to 8 puppies will be given 5 minutes (exactly) to do whatever they want on stage.  They can do a play scene, make a speech, tap dance, strip, or anything else which is not illegal.  Contestants will be scored out of 25 based upon how fun/interesting/hot/adorable the judges think their 5 minute presentation was.  Once all of the stage presentations are done, the contestants will have 30 minutes to collect ballots from P.A.C.K. Weekend package purchasers.  Each ballot will count as one additional point.  The puppy with the highest score will win some great prizes provided by Northbound Leather and our other sponsors.

P.A.C.K. Toronto Weekend (July 22 to 24, 2016) News!!

Preparations are underway for the first (and hopefully “annual”) Pan American Canine Konvention (P.A.C.K.) which will happen this summer. (July 22 to 24); and things are shaping up incredibly well!!

The BEKK executive committee has confirmed most of the weekend events and has confirmed the support of Northbound LeatherO’Grady’s On ChurchPegasus On Church, and The Black Eagle Toronto!!

The weekend will begin with a registration “Meet & Greet” at Northbound Leather, where pups & handlers can enjoy complimentary treats and shop for some of Northbound’s awesome fetish gear.  Afterwards, there will be a Kick-Off Party & special “Pup Night” at the Black Eagle where pups & handlers may socialize and romp around on the mats.

Saturday morning there will be a brunch at O’Grady’s, followed by “Puppy Play Time” at Pegasus which will include free pool tables and video games on the big screen.  Saturday evening will feature a “Best In Show” contest where up to 8 weekend package purchasers will get 5 minutes on stage to do whatever they choose (some restrictions will apply) to impress the judges and fellow weekend package purchasers.  The judges will score each contestant based upon their “5 minutes in the spotlight” and then each contestant will have 30 minutes to go into the crowd, be as adorable as possible, and collect as many ballots as they can from weekend package purchasers.

Congeniality Puppy - Pup Minty

The top 3 pups will win some great prizes plus bragging rights.  This is NOT a title competition.  You have fun, you compete, and win or lose you can compete again next year.  There will be no “title obligations” after winning this contest beyond posing for a few photos.  So far, we have the following prizes confirmed:

Best In Show:  A blue leather “Best In Show” ribbon & $200 gift certificate provided by Northbound Leather + a $30 O’Grady’s gift certificate

First Runner-up:  A red leather ribbon & $100 Northbound Leather gift certificate

Second Runner-up:  A white leather ribbon & $50 Northbound Leather gift certificate

All 8 contest entrants will receive a Black Eagle Toronto T-shirt.

We’re currently in discussions with additional potential sponsors, so there’s a good chance for more prizes.

After the contest, there will be a “Harnesses & Hoods” dance party at the Black Eagle.

On Sunday, we understand we’ll have some tired puppies, but the good folks at O’Grady’s are providing a “$5.00 off” coupon valid on July 24, 2016, for each weekend package purchaser.  In the afternoon, all attendees are invited to the Black Eagle patio for drinks & a barbecue (food items will be available for purchase).

Your weekend package purchase will provide you free admission plus “front of the line” privileges to all events, plus the Saturday brunch, plus the $5.00 Sunday O’Grady’s coupon, plus a ballot & entry form for the Best In Show contest, plus a souvenir dog tag…all for a VERY inexpensive cost.  We’re still crunching the numbers, but expect a weekend package price of $35 or LESS!!!

Once we work out the final details (including Weekend Package purchasing information) they will be available on this website by clicking on the P.A.C.K. Weekend tab from this webpage’s menu (or by clicking here.  There will be a limited number of packages available, so once they become available – start making plans!!!

PUP NOSH – Wednesday 27 April 2016

2008-11-01-Xtra_039

Join your fellow members of the Black Eagle Kennel Klub for an evening of pizza, pasta, and puppies at Olympic Pizza. This will be a great way to socialize with other pups & handlers and to bring along friends who are interested in Puppy Play but are still nervous about playing in public or going to the Eagle.

There’s no dress code for this event, but attendees MUST R.S.V.P. (either on Facebook here or by email at ArgoNBL@Live.ca ) by no later than 20 April 2016 so that we can make our reservation. This place has awesome food and is not expensive at all, so it’s usually busy and space will be limited. We will not guarantee seating with the group for people who do not R.S.V.P. before the deadline.

Come out for some good food and good company!

Feeding time begins at 7:00pm.  We should wrap things up by 9:00pm or so.
