Dog Days

Bring your pooch to the park and have a dog-gone good time for Dog Days of Summer at Principal Park!

The Iowa Cubs will be playing the Omaha Storm Chasers as you and your dog get to enjoy the game with other dogs and dog lovers from seats in our pet-friendly reserved section. Dogs attend free with paid human admission (field box tickets only). Each dog will receive a bandana and the opportunity to be involved in the dog parade on the field before the game begins. Be sure to check out the ARL table near the dog seating section to get your dog their very own Frosty Paws!

This fun event is being presented by Hill's Pet Nutrition, who will be handing out treats to the first 400 dogs, so make sure you stop by their tent, say hello, and check out their table with your pup! Anyone who registered for the game with the ARL will also receive a Hill's collapsible bowl and dog waste bag dispenser.

We have a limited supply of tickets, so get yours while they last.
