If your Valentine’s Day this year is looking like a whole lot of Netflix and sharing popcorn with your pup, it’s not too late to change plans. A local online social group for dog-owners called Ontario Doggos is hosting a singles social in Toronto and your furry friend is invited to tag along.

The event, called Babes, Barks & Beer, will be held at Black Lab Brewing. It’s described as a boozy, fun, and pup-friendly social for over 60 singles and their dogs to attend.

The social will take place both inside the brewery and out on the heated and tented patio. It’s a unique way to meet new people and, at the very least, introduce your dog to some potential playmates.

This year, Ontario Doggos is hoping more dog dads will sign up for the social because the last event had more women than men.

Anyone is welcome to buy tickets but you better do so quickly because these events tend to sell out in 48 hours. Each ticket comes with a complimentary drink and a goodie bag for your pup.

Ontario Doggos is giving dog-owners in Toronto a whole lot more activities to do with their furry companions. In December, they hosted a pup-centric holiday market attended by over 1,200 people.

This also isn’t the first singles social for pup-parents that Ontario Doggos has hosted and it most certainly won’t be the last. So if you don’t make it out to this one, you can stay in the loop about upcoming events on their Instagram.
