It was a day full of running, playing, splashing …and safety! Airvet and our incredible Chief Veterinary Officer Dr. Jeff Werber arrived at DOG PPL – a brand new members-only dog social club in Santa Monica, California to smiling dogs everywhere. We set out on a mission to inform and advise new members about an unfortunate leptospirosis and canine parainfluenza outbreak that has recently spread across California and Los Angeles, and to administer free vaccinations to all four-legged members.
Happy pups after receiving their vaccines
DOG PPL describes itself as “Los Angeles’ first canine social club,” and let us tell you, it was a social affair for everyone – dogs and people alike! The members club recently opened to great acclaim as a dog park that puts safety first. They have trained “Rufferees” on duty during all peak hours to manage the play between dogs and help clean missed deposits. They keep an eye on all four-legged friends, and are never afraid to step in when play gets a little ruff! There are also plans to open a café, bar, and lounge – so dog moms and dog dads can relax and enjoy while their kids are playing.

It’s this emphasis on safety that makes DOG PPL a great match with Airvet and our mission to keep our BFFs healthy and happy for years to come! Dr. Werber spent his Sunday administering free vaccines to prevent leptospirosis and canine parainfluenza and spread the word about the recent outbreak in the local area. Dogs of all ages, breeds, and sizes took their shots like a champ and went right back to playing on the grass, in the doggy pool, and around the custom fire hydrant that shoots a fine mist of water to keep them cool! The Airvet team was there speaking to owners about safety and the benefits (and convenience!) of telemedicine for dogs and how keeping pets healthy starts with knowledge, preparedness, and prevention.
