All dog owners are invited to bring their well-behaved dogs into the stadium for free with the purchase of a regularly priced ticket for themselves. Dogs are free if they sit on a person's lap during the game but if they require more space, a child priced seat may be purchased. Hundreds of canines have been in attendance at each of the first four Bark at the Park events in Trenton.
There will be a "Canine Cash Scramble" on the field after the game. The Canine Cash Scramble will give one lucky fan and their dog the opportunity to go out on the field for a chance to win $10,000. The contest will involve the dog attempting to choose the "Lucky Ball" out of one hundred numbered tennis balls that will be spread out on the infield grass.
Fans interested in participating in the Canine Cash Scramble must go to Dogs and Cats Rule in Newtown, PA or Pennington, NJ to register for the event. No purchase is necessary to enter the contest. Registration for the event will end on April 12.
Another feature of "Bark at the Park" will be a Pet Products Display on the main concourse throughout the game. There will be displays from at least ten different dog product vendors for fans to browse.
In addition, Subaru and the ASPCA (American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals), will have displays outside the stadium to coincide with their "Dog Tested. Dog Approved." campaign and committment to animal welfare.
Leashes are required on the dogs at all times and the Thunder reserve the right to remove a dog from the stadium if it is not well behaved. Season Ticket holders will be allowed to stay in their seats if they wish to bring their dog. Also, a grassed area will be roped off outside of the first base gates for dogs to do their business.
