    The Tigers used to have Bark at the Park when they were terrible and needed to sell tickets. They stopped about five years ago.

    In Michigan most places require companion animals to be licensed. You can't just take your pet anywhere and say it's a service animal. True service animals have been through extensive training programs before becoming licensed.

    That is something I would love to witness!

    Correct. But it is my understanding that the establishment cannot refuse admittance of your companion dog if you refuse to disclose what disability you have that requires you to have a companion dog.

    Apart from sanctioned events where folks can bring their dogs to the park, only "service animals" (as the outside PA at Shea says before every game) are allowed into the park. Whether that means you have to have a clear disability, or if the dogs needs special paperwork or leashed or whatever, who knows.

    As for the Doggie Days, they are highly recommended! Usually only a certain section or sections are used for the dogs and their owners. And when the crowd gets very excited (like a HR), all the dogs bark too. Great fun for dog lovers.

    We went to Doggie Day at Shea in 2006 and loved it.


    All the dogs got to walk around the park on the warning track.




    Royce Ring (remember him?) going to the dogs




    Scruffy, our 4 lb yorkie, on the warning track

    Great time! Get your dogs and check out your local doggie day!

    The rays just had "bark at the park" and I think people loved it.

    The Mets have such an event - "Bark In The Park." This year it's scheduled for September 22 v. Miami.

    The Mets would like to welcome you to Bark In The Park 2 at Citi Field presented by Natural Balance Pet Foods! Support the largest no-kill animal rescue and adoption organization in the world.

    Join the Mets and Natural Balance Pet Foods as we enjoy a ballgame with our dogs.

    Sit together with fellow dog lovers in designated Pepsi Porch seats. The entire profit of the dog ticket and a portion of the human ticket will benefit the North Shore Animal League. Dogs will only be allowed in the Pepsi Porch area at Citi Field.

    Report to the Bullpen Gate by noon with your tickets in hand to participate in the Dog Parade (weather permitting). If you are not participating in the parade, please continue to only enter via the Bullpen Gate. This gate opens at 11:40 a.m.

    I suspect other clubs have similar events.

    I've seen games where fans are encouraged to bring their dogs along. There was one Yankees/A's game awhile back where thousands of dogs showed up. It was surreal.

    Bringing your dog to a MLB game

    While at an A's game earlier this year, I noticed a fan had his dog with him in the ballpark. I later asked one of the guest services personnel about this and was told that you need only declare the pet as a "companion animal" and they are required by law to let the animal in with you. I was told it dates back about 3 years and is a result of the Americans with Disabilities Act in which they cannot request you disclose what disability you have which requires you to have a companion animal.

    What do others know about this?
