This is super big news. Well, for me at least. I’ve been a HUGE Arizona Diamondbacks fan since I was 13 years old. I watch every game of every season. I’ve been to playoff games, too many spring training games and have waited long hours for player autographs. Two years ago, Matt and I took Wynston to “Bark in the Park,” a dog friendly baseball game at the D-back’s Chase Field. The proceeds benefited the AAWL and we had a designated area to sit during the game. It was amazing. I just wished that I could take Wynston to a game whenever I want – and that dream just came true.
PetSmart corporate is based out of AZ. We’re also a very dog friendly state. So put those two together and what do you get? A dog-friendly MLB ballpark!
Dog-friendly Chase Field
- The Arizona Diamondbacks and PetSmart are partnering up to make the first ballpark that welcomes dogs all season long, starting with the 2016 season.
- The PetSmart Patio will be along the main concourse behind the left-center field wall. There will be multi-tiered seating for families and dogs of all kinds, so your whole family can be comfortable.
- There will be an air-conditioned dog park so you can take your dog for some fun and exercise during the game!
Dog Days of Summer
This is a baseball loving, dog mom’s dream. The Diamondbacks are going to offer a special ticket package where pets can enjoy special doggy ice cream with kibble toppings and other snacks! The package also comes with a bag full of PetSmart swag!
“We are excited to create a unique dog-friendly area of our ballpark and can think of no better way than to partner with Phoenix-based PetSmart,” Diamondbacks president and CEO, Derrick Hall said in a media release.”

Needless to say, I am beyond excited about this. I told Matt that he won’t be seeing me much this summer because I’ll mostly be at Chase Field with Wynston! This is going to be amazing! The first dog-friendly ballpark in the country?! YES PLEASE!
