The Nationals have set aside a seating area in the Outfield Reserved sections 140-143 for "Pups in the Park" participants. A limited number of tickets will be sold.

Ticket holders will receive an email with directions for entering the park, and a waiver requiring proof of rabies and bordetella vaccinations prior to the game date. The signed waiver must be turned in order for the dog to be admitted to the park.

An important thing to take into consideration before buying tickets is how well your dog will react to crowds, cheering, and especially the fireworks that go off when the Nationals hit a home run or win the game. While enjoying a great baseball game with your best four-legged pal is a treat, comforting a traumatized pooch is not. Also, like older human fans of the Nationals, please take into consideration if you bring an older pup, can they handle a few hours in the sun?

All dogs must have an official dog ticket to enter the ballpark. To buy tickets for "Pups in the Park," go to
