2024 Bark in the Park Major League Baseball Games

Share with fellow dog lovers!

Spring is just around the corner, and that means that the boys of summer will soon be back on the playing field! Many major league baseball teams host special dog-themed games during the 2024 season, so be sure to “pitch” the idea of attending a Bark in the Park game to your baseball-loving dog!


Arizona Diamondbacks Dog Days of Summer

On April 16, the Diamondbacks will head to the baseball diamond to play the Chicago Cubs in a Bark at the Park game.

Prior to the first pitch, pups and their pet parents can participate in a pre-game parade, and when the game is over sports-loving Spots will go home with a swag bag!

A happening with heart, a portion of the proceeds from each sold ticket will be donated to Joybound.

San Diego Padres at The Barkyard

Baseball buffs and their buddies who bark can watch their favorite team play on April 3rd (against the St. Louis Cardinals), April 30th (against the Cincinnati Reds), July 9th (against the Seattle Mariners) and August 12th (against the Pittsburgh Pirates) during special Bark At The Park games. 

Not only does each dog-friendly event include either special treats or a toy for attending tailwaggers, it also includes a donation to Petco Love for each human ticket purchased. 

While the Padres invite pups to special Bark At The Park games each year, pooches of pet parents who purchase special seating in The Barkyard can watch every game the Padres play at Petco Park. Families with dogs can fill out an online form to get on the waitlist for a coveted opening.

A game that will be a real game changer for dogs and cats in need, a portion of the proceeds from both Dog Days events will benefit the San Francisco SPCA.

Prior to the first pitch, costume-clad pups can promenade on the playing field in a parade!
