PetSmart, Inc. and the Arizona Diamondbacks have teamed up to create the first-ever season-long, dog-friendly ballpark with a dedicated new PetSmart Patio, PetSmart Park and the Dog Days of Summer program, where dog-loving fans can bring their dogs to all 13 Sunday D-backs home games in the 2016 season.
Pet parents can enjoy America’s favorite pastime with their best friends at Chase Field with exclusive seating, a grassy play area nearby, and the PetSmart adoption spot that will feature adoptable dogs ready to find their forever homes among the D-backs’ fan base. The first Dog Days of Summer Sunday home game was April 10.
The PetSmart Patio is located along the main concourse behind the left-center field wall. The patio area features a family-friendly atmosphere with multi-tiered seating that is perfect for groups of humans and canines of various sizes. Pets can enjoy concessions such as dog-friendly ice cream with toppings like kibble and other pet treats. As part of the Dog Days of Summer ticket package, pet parents will also receive a PetSmart “Doggie Bag,” complete with free items from PetSmart.
Directly behind the PetSmart Patio will be the PetSmart Park—an outdoor and indoor (air conditioned) dog park so even in the heat of the summer dogs can run around and play.
Dog Days of Summer ticket packages are available now for $160 and include a semi-private space with all the necessities for four people and one dog. Each table comes with access to All-You-Can-Eat hot dogs, soda, water, popcorn, peanuts, and chips.
Proof of up-to-date rabies vaccination records will need to be provided. For more information and to purchase tickets for Dog Days of Summer, call 602-462-4600 or visit http://arizona.diamondbacks.mlb.com and click on the Dog Days of Summer box.
In addition to the new semi-private seating area for pet parents and their pooches, PetSmart will continue to sponsor the annual Bark at the Park game day special events, in conjunction with Central Garden & Pet, the parent of AvoDerm Natural Pet Foods and Nylabone.
At each of the Bark at the Park games, in addition to taking in the excitement of Major League Baseball, fans and their dogs can join in a pre-game parade around the field and enjoy a PetSmart-hosted activities center including dog-friendly ice cream samples, photo ops, Pet Expression dog-friendly painted stencils featuring the logos of the teams playing that day, giveaways and discount coupons.
The Bark at the Park 2016 season launched on May 1 when the Diamondbacks hosted the Colorado Rockies at Chase Field in Phoenix. Other Bark at the Park game dates include: May 14 and 20; June 5 and 21; July 9 and 22; Aug. 9, 16 and 28; and Sept. 13 and 21. These are separate events from the Dog Days of Summer promotion. Seating is alone the baseline and in the bleachers; tickets range from $40-$56 for one owner and one dog.
