Puppy Pride Flag / Dog Pride Flag
This is the design I used to make the Puppy Pride Flags and Puppy Pride
Decals used by the Tampa Leather Club, the Tampa Bay Leather Sir & Leather boy
Contest, the Saint Petersburg Pride Parade, the Tampa Bay Leather n Fetish Pride
Event and it is the official Puppy Pride flag of International Puppy.
The Puppy Pride Flag is similar to the 7 stripe design created by Jeff Hull (Grungepup
Jeff) but has the same number of Black, Blue and White Stripes as the Leather
Pride Flag created by Tony DeBlase that is a symbol for the leather community,
which encompass those who are into leather, Levi's, SM, BD, uniform, cowboys,
rubber, and other fetishes. The Stripes are set on a 30 degree diagonal
reminiscent of the boy flag designed by Keith P. to indicate a new
direction. The White Stripe is wider than the other stripes to represent the
broadness of the puppy community. The blood Red Bone in the center of the flag
indicates the unconditional, non-judgmental heart of the puppy.
I am releasing this design to public domain so it can be used royalty free for
private or commercial use. Feel free to copy and use it.

Puppy Play 101
What is a human puppy / dog?
Flip aka The Flip-n-Puppy
Jaeger Pup T
A puppy or dog is a human pet. It can be a male or female who
identifies closely with real biological
pups/dogs and lets go their
human inhibitions and stress to embrace their animal instinct. They
live in the moment, their entire existence revolves around getting a
pat on the head, being told they are a good puppy, exploring
anything and everything that looks interesting or fun, even if it's
sniffing someone in public. A pup/dog may take on the persona of a
biological canine to varying degrees from being on all fours chasing
balls and barking instead of talking to only taking on the
personality of a pup/dog but retaining their human abilities.
many it's just a type of role playing but for others it's a part of
their inner spirit, it's who they are whether in pup gear or not.
How should strangers approach a human puppy / dog?
Most pups/dogs love to be petted but a
stranger should approach a human pup/dog the same way they would
approach a real canine. If the pup/dog has a human with them, you
should ask the human if it's ok to approach or pet the pup/dog. If
the pup/dog is alone and turns away or growls when you approach
them, you should leave them alone. You should never try to grab a
pups/dogs collar or leash and if they are wearing a lock you should
never touch it or the collar as some owners take this as an act of
disrespect to them personally. A pup/dog that wants to be petted
will make it obvious and might move toward you or they may lick or
sniff you when you approach.
- A human pup/dog approaching another
should use some common sense, never just run up and pounce on the
other pup/dog without properly introducing yourself using barks or
whimpers or human language. The other pup/dog might not want to play
or their owner/trainer/handler may not allow them to interact with
What are the differences?
A puppy is younger (no matter what their human age), they are
more playful, mischievous and less obedient.
- A dog is older, less playful, more serious, protective and
- Gear/Furry pups are more into the role play playing aspect. They
love the gear and the acting more than the mindset. When the gear
comes off, they retain little or none of the pup/dog personality.
- Slave dogs/curs are rare, not a pet and not a normal part of the
pup/dog world. They want to be treated lower than a sub-human,
caged, humiliated and disrespected. Many inexperienced Tops and Sirs
mistakenly think this is the normal desire of everyone that
identifies as a pup/dog then attempts to treat any pup/dog they meet
as such and gets upset when the pup/dog ignores, growls or tries to
bite them. A puppy is not a human slave.
What is puppy play?
Puppy play is NOT about bestiality. Human puppy play does not
involve real pups/dogs in sexual activities and it does not mean
someone desires to perform sexual activities with real biological
- Puppy play originally began as a way to humiliate or punish a
boy by making them look and act like a dog but many found they
identified more with being a pet than they did as a boy or slave.
The punishment turned out to be more fun than humiliation. So began
the puppy movement. Today it is growing in leaps and bounds as more
and more people find their true nature as a pet.
- It is different for everyone that takes
on the role of a puppy or a dog. It sometimes involves a
trainer/master/handler/owner where a pup is trained, disciplined or
simply acts like a spoiled pet and sometimes it may only involve
playing with other pups/dogs or playing alone. Some pups completely
relinquish all human characteristics,
becoming a true "pet" while others retain varying degrees of their
- For some it's completely non-sexual, there is no erotic or
sexual interaction at all, simply relying on someone to feed and
reward or discipline them is only an exciting variation of Dominance
and submission (D/s). For others, they are always a human, capable
sexual behavior with other pups or humans. Puppy play has strong
naturally occurring elements of D/s, ownership and control, as well
as other traditional
- Puppy play depends on what the people involved are hoping to
accomplish, it can be nothing more than role-play fun or an escape
from reality using an alternate personality.
What activities are involved in puppy play?
Anything a real puppy/dog might do! It can range from simply
sleeping on a pad on the floor at night, to housetraining, to
chasing a ball or Frisbee to wrestling with a human or other pups to
playing a day in the life of a "pet owner".
- Taking care of a human pup/dog can be as demanding as taking
care of a real pup/dog or as simple as living with a roommate.
Depending on the pup, there may be a lot of training and care
involved. Most people will not want to clean up the floor or the
human pup after it pees or potties but some might want to have to
train them not to. Others may prefer their pet to be more
self-sufficient and clean up after itself as well as help do chores
around the house.
What do human puppies/dogs wear?
At home, most owners/trainers/handlers
demand their pets always be naked other than a collar and sometimes
a hood, tail, mitts, knee pads and maybe socks or shoes for foot
protection since real canines don't usually wear clothes. It's up to
the owner/trainer/handler to determine what, if any clothing is to
- At clubs, bars and friends homes
pups/dogs usually wear as little as possible ranging from totally
naked, to jock strap, to wet suit, to normal street clothes. Use
common sense, you don't want to make people too uncomfortable or
violate dress codes. Most local police require genitals and pubic
hair to be covered as well as at least a 1 inch wide strap in back.
If you can't wear it to a public beach you probably can't wear it to
a public bar.
- At restaurants and other public places,
common sense applies. Normally you can wear a collar and sometimes
some pup gear can be worn, sometimes not, depending on the
What toys/accessories are involved in puppy play?
Collar and leash to take them for a walk.
- Padded knee pads to protect their knees while crawling.
- Padded bondage mitts or socks to restrict thumbs and pad the
- Squeaky toys and balls with rope through them so the pup/dog can
grasp it with their teeth.
- Large dog bowls or shallow dishes such as cake pans shallow and
wide enough to get the pups/dogs face in.
- Cage for punishment or play large enough for the pup/dog stretch
their legs out straight while sitting up.
A large, well padded dog bed for taking
naps or sleeping.
- Restraint devices to train the pup/dog to stay on all fours or
- A muzzle, hood or mask (preferably with ears) to keep the
pup/dog from talking.
- Butt plug tail or belt with a tail attachment.
- Housetraining pads for the floor if needed.
- Treats for rewarding good pups/dogs.
- A rolled up newspaper to correct minor behavior problems.
- Chastity devices if your pup/dog tries to hump things or people.
Be sure to get one that can be left on when urinating.
- Anything else an owner or a pup wants
that helps them get into head space.
What is involved in puppy training?
Hard-core puppy trainers may want to use behavior
modification techniques using the following tools to train their
- Restraints may be used to restrict the pups ability to stand
up or use their hands since pups/dogs are always on all fours
and don't have thumbs. Note: This can be physically debilitating
if taken to extremes or frequent breaks are not allowed.
- Muzzles or hoods may be used to prevent the pup/dog from
speaking since pups/dogs bark and whine, they do not speak, they
use body language or other antics to convey what they want.
Remember to remove it frequently to allow them to drink. Note: If
a human puppy is never allowed to speak or interact as a normal
human being for long periods they may become psychotic and
dangerous to you and themselves.
- Cages or shock collars (around their thighs never around
their neck) may be used if a puppy engages in or responds to
normal human conversations since pups/dogs can only understand
and respond to simple commands, like "sit", "stay", "come",
"heel", "fetch" etc.
Dog bowls may be used to feed pup/dogs. Human faces are too
short for most dog bowls so use a shallow bowl or one large
enough for them to get their entire face in. Being a human
pup/dog requires a lot of energy so keep a lot of water
available to them. The human tongue was not designed to scoop up
water so be sure to keep the bowl full or use a water bottle.
To enhance the eating experience, canned human foods such as
beef stew, corned beef hash or breakfast cereals can be used.
They can be relabeled if desired. Human pups/dogs should never
eat real dog food! It does not have the correct nutritional
content and may give them diarrhea, make them very sick or poison
- Chastity devices may be needed to keep horny pups/dogs from
humping the furniture or peoples legs. Be sure to use a style
that can be left on while the pup/dog urinates.
Being a pup/dog 24/7 is a fantasy. The human body needs to exercise
as a human and communicate regularly as human to remain physically
and mentally healthy. Being on all fours 24/7 would result in joint,
muscle and spinal damage and never having a normal human conversation
could result in a psychotic pup/dog that may be a danger to you and
To be a healthy pup/dog, they have to be a healthy human.

Design based on the Leather Pride Flag created by Tony DeBlase but with
vertical stripes and the red heart replaced by a centered doberman head.
This is one of the oldest if not the oldest Puppy Pride flag designs.
The design symbolism is unknown.

cannot be confirmed. Rumors vary widely from it being public domain to
it being copyrighted but licensed as free to use.

The outer part of the symbol forms an oblong ring that recalls a dog
collar. The collar is black and gray like the color of the hanky code
flags for SM and bondage. The circular aspect of the color is meant to
represent the circle of the puppy play community that binds us together.
Inside is a white dog bone. The bone, of course, represents the unique
nature of puppy play. It's white to symbolize the innocence and purity
of the puppy head space. Finally at the bottom of the symbol is a red
heart that dangles from the collar like a dog tag. The heart represents
the love and bond between puppies and their trainers. The heart is at an
angle to recall the heart from the BDSM Pride Flag and what we have
learned from that community.
The Puppy Play Pride Symbol was created by Mae Puppy (Miss Marie) and
scamp puppy (spacey) because we wanted to find a better way to show our
pride for the puppy play community, to celebrate puppies, and to
celebrate the owner-puppy relationship. We feel this symbol speaks to us
in all of these important ways and we humbly submit it to the greater
puppy play community in hopes that it will speak to you too.
We choose to offer this symbol of pride to the puppy play community
freely with hopes that people will find many creative ways of sharing
and celebrating the joys of puppy play and the puppy training. It is
intended to be pansexual and we hope that it will be accepted by the
many diverse puppies and trainers that can be found in our lifestyle.
We are releasing this symbol into the public domain for everyone to use
in a wide variety of ways. You can use it to create pride pins, patches,
flags, or any thing you can come up with. We hope you'll use it to share
