Detroit Tigers Announce the Return of ‘Bark at the Park’

Take your pooch out to the ballgame! Back by popular demand, the Detroit Tigers bring back “Bark at the Park” on June 27, where dogs are welcome to Comerica Park.

You’ve heard of Bring Your Dog to Work Day, but what about bringing your dog to other venues? Well, although the Detroit Tigers can’t help you if you’re looking to bring your dog to the supermarket, or yoga class, with you, they can help. Want to bring your dog to a sports event? If you live in Detroit and like baseball, you’re in for a treat.

If there’s anything dogs love more than their humans, it’s playing a good game of catch. The Detroit Tigers and dogs (all dogs) have this in common, and in their attempt to celebrate their similarities, the Tigers have invited dogs into their home ballpark. The team announced recently that they will be repeating last year’s successful “Bark at the Park” night. Bark at the Park”allows fans to bring their canine companions to Comerica Park for the Tigers game against the Kansas City Royals on Tuesday, June 27.

The park is offering exclusive Bark at the Park night ticket packages. These include one ticket for one human and one dog each, as well as access to the Bark at the Park Party area, water stations, dog restrooms, and other perks. Your canine companion will be able to socialize with other dogs, because let’s be honest; the best thing about these kind of events is seeing the dogs be delighted in meeting each other.

The Detroit Tigers aren’t the only sports team to offer this kind of event. Houston-based soccer teams the Dynamo and the Dash also hosted a “Dog Days of Summer” event which featured a doggie friendly area and a doggie daycare option for any interested viewers.
