  • Thank you so much for sharing your thoughts, Lisa! I completely agree with you – going to these games would be way to much for my boys. I’m sure some people’s dogs have a great time, but Ty and Buster would be overstimulated in that environment. It’s an excellent idea to just go for the pre-game festivities and I hope people will read your comment and remember to make sure their dogs are having fun, too. If they’re not … it’s time to go!

  • Oh my gosh … photos please!!!! Rocco is just the cutest little guy ever. I hope you guys have a great time.

    Great list of baseball teams joining in on this. Thanks Amy. I went to the SF Giants “Dogs Days of Summer” game a few years ago with my dog Sanchez. While I absolutely loved the opportunity pre-game to walk around the ball field and see him on the big screen, I actually left the game after the 3rd inning. The loud sound environment was way too stressful for so many dogs, they couldn’t orient the source of the sound (to tell whether it was safe), and so many human handlers were unaware that their dogs were stressed and needed extra space, especially at this type of high energy, loud volume event. I love it that there are so many events these days that cater to our dogs, I just wish more of them were conscious about how the sound environment effects dog’s nervous systems. To me, second hand sound is just as harmful as second hand smoke. To dogs, it’s even worse. It can effect their nervous system instantly and they have no way of leaving the environment, unless their humans are aware. That being said, I would go back and just do the dog parade again pre-game, as that was before the offensive sounds started and the dogs had a lot of space between them when they walked around the ballpark. If your readers take their dogs to ballgames or other events with loud music playing, I just ask them to really watch their dogs and notice whether they can handle the sound environment. Some can, many can not. Thanks for allowing me to state my point of view.

  • Great list! We went to Atlanta Braves Bark in the Park a few years ago and had a blast! Going to try to take Rocco Havanese to the game in a few weeks!
