Take in a ball game at “The Barkyard presented by Petco,” six brand new semi-private dog-friendly viewing boxes where four-legged fans can now cheer on the Padres at every home game.

Watching a baseball game with your best pals is always a treat – and if your dog is part of the excitement, even better! For fans who can’t bear to keep their pooch on the bench while the San Diego Padres are playing, the Barkyard has got you covered.

Petco and the San Diego Padres has announced the Barkyard, six semi-private, premium dog-friendly box seats in Petco Park’s left center-field which will be available for every Padres home game. This space used to be a row of the Picnic Terrace group space, but now caters to dog-loving fans. The Barkyard will feature a designated entrance from K Street in the Park, a check-in staffed by a Petco brand ambassador, and a watering station near check-in to keep your dog well hydrated.

The boxes can accommodate a total of four people and two dogs and is especially designed with your dog’s comfort in mind. Each box offers umbrellas to keep your dog cool during those hot days and easy-to-clean artificial turf that doesn’t retain heat in order to keep your pooch’s paws cool.

The Barkyard will also have an in-seat menu by The Patio in Left Field and each canine fan will receive a complimentary homemade treat. Plus, every person in attendance in the bark box will receive a swag bag with goodies such as treats and toys, all complements of Petco.

All four tickets must be purchased together, regardless of the number of attendees (so be sure to have a full house in order to take advantage of the seats). Ticket prices vary by game but start at $100 for each of the Barkyard boxes.

“The Padres are continuously looking for new ways to offer our fans a unique ballpark experience…” said Padres Vice President, Corporate Partnerships Sergio Del Prado. “Given our longstanding partnership with Petco, it’s only natural that Petco Park would become the first Major League Baseball venue to welcome fans together with their dogs in a dedicated space at every home game.”

In order to purchase Barkyard tickets, fans must submit their dog’s information online including vaccination records, license number and other details about their dogs. Tickets for The Barkyard are now available for purchase for Padres home games starting June 13 until the remainder of the 2016 season.
