Major League Baseball season is in full swing, and that means it’s time to get your dog ready to root, root, root for the home team! Get tickets to your local team’s Dog Day Games, the very best games of the entire season.

Where else than at your team’s Dog Day game can you get out to the ballpark and cheer on your team with your furry best friend by your side? You can even enjoy a hot dog together!

At these special events, you and your pup will sit in a designated section just for dogs and take part in fun activities like pre-game parades around the field, costume contests, special treats and more. Even better, most ballparks donate a portion of ticket proceeds to local animal charities.

Get your tickets now since they are often limited in number and go quickly. Know you’ll need the Dog Day tickets, not General Admission tickets so you can have access to the designated section and events; also be certain that your dog is comfortable with noise, crowds, and other dogs so he or she enjoys the day.

Below are listings to date for all Major League Baseball teams – you’ll typically see the games listed within the 2018 Promotional Schedule at your team’s official website. Minor League teams often have Dog Day Games also so check for those or even initiate your own event with a club or company team.

The Scoop:


If your dog wants to skip the game this year, but still show his or her allegiance to your favorite team, find officially licensed gear for your dog for all of the teams – caps, bandana, collars and leashes, id tags, and more.

Woof Reporter Larry (photographed enjoying a bully stick) gives four paws up to the World Series Champs, the San Francisco Giants, and gets plenty of compliments on his Giants collar and leash when he’s out and about around the city!
