“Bark In The Park” At The University Of Miami
It was a gorgeous spring evening and a night for the dogs and Miami Pet Concierge was there to join in on all the fun!
On Saturday, March 24, the University of Miami’s Baseball Program hosted it’s 3rd Annual “Bark at the Park” during the team’s series against NC State at Alex Rodriguez Park at Mark Light Field in Coral Gables, Florida.
The doors opened at 5:30 PM and dogs participating in a doggie parade strutted their wagging tails at 6:16 PM.
Proceeds of the event benefited the Humane Society of Greater Miami. The animal rescue provided water pools for dogs to cool off in, water bowls to quench their thirst, treats, doggie bags, and a selfie station for pet/owner selfies.
In the end, the Canes lost to North Carolina 7 to 6, but that didn’t come without a fight. The Hurricanes were down five at the bottom of the ninth and came back with a vengeance, only for their efforts to be stopped just before it was completed.
Regardless of the outcome of the game, everyone had a great time. Over 100 dogs and pet parents were in the stadium cheering on our team. Young, old, big, small, and tons of tons of happy pups!
How to prepare for the next “Bark in the Park” at the University of Miami?
“Bark in the Park” at the Unversity of Miami is held twice during the baseball season. The following is how you can prepare for the next event.
- All dogs must be escorted by an adult (18+) to the event.
- Only one dog per adult.
- An EVENT WAIVER must be completed by pet owners before being permitted into the event. We suggest printing and completing it prior to the event to help speed up the check-in process.
- All dogs must be on a leash and be wearing their proper city tags.
