There will be cool water, pools, shady spots, misting machines and ice cream on hand, the direct sun and heat can be a deadly combination for dogs. Dogs cool themselves down by panting and are not nearly as efficient as us humans. Please keep the comfort and safety of your dog in the forefront of your mind when planning out this fun day at the park.
Is your dog right for the ballpark?
Yes, if your dog:
. Is old enough to be around other dogs and people (at least 4 months of age)
. Is up-to-date on all vaccinations
. Is in relatively good health and can walk up and down several flights of stairs
. Does well on-leash and is not overly aggressive toward other dogs
. Is friendly toward humans and not excessively fearful
. Is a Rivets fan!
Probably not, if your dog:
. Is still too young to mix with a big crowd (under 4 months of age)
. Is a senior dog that would have trouble navigating stairs and being outside for an extended period of time
. Has aggressive tendencies towards other dogs or humans while on-leash (or off)
. Is exhibiting any signs of illness close to the day of the game (i.e. cough, nasal discharge, lethargy, diarrhea, etc.)
. These symptoms can be signs of potentially infectious illnesses and it would probably be best for your dog as well as the other dogs in attendance, if they did not attend.
Older dogs, dogs with short muzzles and/or dogs in general that are quickly prone to heat exhaustion should consider not attending this event or possibly plan on not staying for the entire game.
