Take Your Dog Out to the Ballgame

Head to the ballpark with your pup for one of Major League Baseball's many dog-friendly games.

Many Major and Minor League baseball teams hold special “dog-friendly” games where well-behaved, leashed pups are invited into the stadium, usually with a portion of the proceeds of ticket sales donated to a local humane society.

This season, the Arizona Diamondbacks are taking dog-friendly ballparks to a whole new level with the PetSmart Patio, a permanent facility at Chase Field, where you can enjoy the game with your dog in one of 30 doggie suites. There’s even an indoor-outdoor dog park!

Dogs are welcome at all 13 home games, and the Arizona Humane Society showcases adoptable dogs in The Adopt Spot by PetSmart, MLB’s first season-long adoption program. Tickets must be purchased in advance. Find more information at the Arizona Diamondbacks website.
