Valentine dog days hosted by GoFETCH at Ambitious Ales, Saturday

Valentine’s Day, in its most altruistic form, is meant to remind us of our adoration and devotion to those we love. So it seems only fitting to also direct that energy towards the creatures that we love and, in turn, love us unconditionally.

Dog daycare outfit GoFETCH understands this completely, so they’re throwing a post-Valentines Day gathering at Ambitious Ales where pups can hang out while their human companions eat, drink and slyly (or overtly, we don’t know your house rules) feed their pets bite-sized bits of “people food” under the table.

The day will start with a 20-minute walk from the daycare down to Ambitious Ales, where the brewery’s entire patio will be designated for dogs and their owners. Those looking to forego the exercise are still welcome to show up at the brewery, but best arrive a little late to the party, say 12:30 p.m., since the rest of the pack departs from the daycare at noon.

On-site will be VCHOS, a Salvadorian food truck serving traditional, Central American cuisine with a modern twist.

The first 10 people to arrive at GoFETCH will be awarded a specialty gift bag that includes a $20 GoFETCH gift card, a tennis ball, bandana and a roll of dog waste plastic bags.

Palentine’s Pawtner Walk and Yappy Hour starts at GoFETCH doggy daycare (3434 Atlantic Ave.) and ends at Ambitious Ales (4019 Atlantic Ave). The event runs from 12 p.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 15 and is free to attend, but does not include food and drinks. You can check out their Facebook event page, here.
