Whether you’re catching a home game or planning to follow your favorite team on the road, taking your dog to the ball park is an experience you’ll always remember. Below you’ll find Major League Baseball’s schedule of dog friendly baseball games for 2023.

Taking Your Dog To The Ballpark

Each year major and minor league ballparks across the country host dozens of dog friendly baseball games. During these special events, the stadiums usually reserve a section of the stands for people with pets, and a portion of the ticket sales generally benefits local shelters and rescues.

So, attending a dog friendly baseball game is a fantastic opportunity to make memories with your pup AND help your community. It’s a win-win!

Each team has its own requirements for proof of vaccinations, weight limits, waivers, and what’s included in the ticket price. Be sure to visit their website or call the ticket office to confirm the details before purchasing your tickets.

Is your pup ready to woof, woof, woof  for the home team? Make your plans now, because tickets to dog friendly baseball games sell out fast! Or give your pooch a real treat and plan a pet friendly road trip, visiting a ball park at every stop!
