Those are the words every dog has been waiting to hear. And what could be better than enjoying a dog friendly baseball game with your best friend? With the smell of hotdogs and popcorn, and people throwing balls – it’s basically a dog’s dream come true!
Whether you’re catching a home game or following your favorite team on the road, below you’ll find Major League Baseball’s schedule of dog friendly baseball games for 2019.
Take Your Dog to the Ballpark
Major and minor league ballparks across the country add more “Bark in the Park” and “Dog Days” to their schedules each year. For these special events, the stadiums usually reserve a separate section of the stands for people and their pets. Attending a dog friendly baseball game is a fantastic opportunity to make memories with your pup, but you’re also helping your community. A portion of the ticket sales usually benefits local shelters and rescues, so it’s a win-win!
Each team sets its own requirements for proof of vaccinations, weight limits, waivers, and what’s included in the ticket price. Therefore it’s important to visit the website or call the ticket office to confirm the details before purchasing your tickets.
Is your pup ready to woof, woof, woof for his favorite team? Make your plans now, because these tickets sell out fast. Or give your pooch a real treat and plan a pet friendly road trip to a bunch of dog friendly baseball games!
In addition to the games listed above, the Arizona Diamondbacks offer “Dog Days of Summer” ticket packages for five home games starting at $180. Admission includes a semi-private space on the dog friendly patio for four humans and one dog, all-you-can-eat hot dogs, soda, water, popcorn, peanuts, chips, and access to the outdoor/indoor (air conditioned) dog park.
The San Diego Padres also offer an elevated backyard-inspired setting that is dog friendly for all their home games. Priced starting at $114, the “Barkyard Package” includes admission to a semi-private, dog-friendly viewing area in left-center field for up to four people and two dogs.
Remember, many minor league baseball teams have similar “Bark at the Park” promotions, so be sure to check them out!
