Bark in the Park
There are Dodger Dogs and then there are Dodger dogs. For the first time in Dodger Stadium history, both are part of the experience. On Saturday, Aug. 21, the Dodgers will hold their inaugural Bark in the Park at Dodger Stadium, presented by Dick Van Patten’s Natural Balance Pet Foods, Inc. Fans that purchase a special event ticket in the All-You-Can-Eat Right Field Pavilion are invited to bring their dogs to the park and help cheer on their home team as the Dodgers host the Cincinnati Reds at 7:10 p.m.
Part of the festivities includes a pregame “Pup Rally” in Parking Lot G between the Left and Right Field Pavillions. Each pup and their owners will check in at this location and receive a goodie bag. Fans can participate in contests and watch a rally featuring skateboarding dog Tillman. After the “Pup Rally” fans will parade around the warning track of the field with their dogs.
The Dodgers will donate a portion of the proceeds to the Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals, Los Angeles.
Basically, Dodger fans can bring their Dodger dogs to the game and eat some Dodger Dogs in the pavilion, while watching some other dog lovers.
Andre Ethier has a dog named Lil Wayne. Jonathan Broxton has six dogs. Russell Martin has a boxer. And Joe Torre has a pair of dogs of his own.
All dog owners must bring a copy of a current rabies vaccination document from a licensed veterinarian and all dogs must wear an ID tag to the game and be accompanied by someone 18 years or older.
