Major League Pets - Major League Baseball Pet Friendly Games

It's exciting to see more "Bark in the Park" and "Dog Days", being added in major and minor league ballparks across the country. For these events, a special section of the stands is usually reserved for people attending their pups. Not only is it a unique opportunity to make a #MajorLeaguePet out of your pup, but a portion of the dog friendly ticket proceeds generally goes to benefit local shelters and rescues.

7 Tips for Taking Your Dog to the Tailgate

  1. Make sure the venue is pet-friendly
  2. Don’t leave dogs outside or locked inside vehicles
  3. Keep human food and alcohol away from dogs
  4. Bring along pet supplies, including food and water
  5. Dress your dog in your favorite team's sportswear
  6. Clean up after your pet
  7. Supervise your dog at all times

When tailgating, the last thing you want to do is to chase after your dog in a huge, noisy crowd. Tailgating often takes place in parking lots and can be a hazardous environment for pets. To keep your dog safe, keep him on a sturdy leash and supervise him at all times, especially around hot, BBQ grills and human food and alcohol.
