Posted by Elizabeth Garcia

Whether you’re looking forward to spending your summer attending sporting events, street festivals, summer camp, or relaxing on the nearest dog-friendly patio with a drink in hand, we’ve got a full line-up of everything you and Fido need on your June calendar.

Make sure Fido sports his team colors when he’s perched in the stands for Bark in the Park with the Brooklyn Cyclones. The night begins with a pre-game pup parade around the baseball field before the first pitch when the New York Mets’ affiliate team takes on the Greenville Drive. Cheer on the Cyclones from the main seating bowl in sections 22 and 24, where both two- and four-legged fans have a clear view of the action. Each ticket allows entry for you and your dog, and canine fans receive a chew toy replica of the Mets’ Home Run Big Apple to take home.

Bark in the Park with the Brooklyn Cyclones will be held June 6 at Maimonides Park on the Coney Island Boardwalk. Stop for a pregame frozen treat at Coney’s Cones, just a short walk from the park. Post-game, this quaint apartment in Brooklyn’s trendy residential Prospect Lefferts Gardens neighborhood offers your canine companion a fenced yard.

If a perfect afternoon includes your favorite canine alongside you and a glass of wine, mark your calendar for the Woof, Wag & Wine event. Throughout the month of June, Debonne Vineyards, Cask 307 and Grand River Cellars Winery & Restaurant are inviting you and Fido to their dog-friendly patios for a delicious food and wine pairing. Human guests will be served an appetizer and wine samples, while dogs will be greeted with a treat and bandana at each location. Your ticket is valid for one visit to each business and includes a $10 donation to Lake Humane Society & Adoption Center.

Woof, Wag & Wine takes place from June 1 to June 30. Once you’ve sipped, sniffed and swished your way through this self-guided winery tour, make Yellow Dog Retreat your final resting stop. This property has a spacious deck and grass-covered yard, and is situated less than 10 minutes from each winery on the tour.

Bark on Biddle is a three-day summer festival packed with fun-filled activities for Fido. Visitors will find the streets lined with vendors selling doggy fashion, unique toys and homemade dog treats. Once you’re armed with bagfuls of goodies for your four-legged family, head straight to The Beer Garden to quench your thirst before escorting the youngest member of your pack to the Puppy Foam Party. Then make a splash by entering your athletic pup in a dock jumping competition and let him unleash his speed on the Lucky Dogs Lure Course.

Bark on Biddle will be held June 2, 3 & 4. Once the weekend activities come to a close, head into nearby Dearborn and let Fido stretch out in a dog-friendly room at Extended Stay America Detroit Dearborn.

Canine Camp Getaway

If you thought summer camp was only for children, think again! Canine Camp Getaway is Fido’s very own four-day mini vacation for dogs of all sizes, ages and abilities. Six to eight activities take place every hour throughout the day and include agility, hiking, swimming, dock diving, and a lure course. For a hobby you can both try, unwind at a doga (dog yoga) class, learn “Barks & Crafts”, and you can both unleash your hidden talents at the canine freestyle dance! Human campers can also partake in a canine CPR session or attend classes educating pet owners on topics such as pet nutrition.

Canine Camp Getaway will be held June 9-13. Those looking to extend Fido’s summer vacation in Gettysburg after camp is over can book Battlefield Bed & Breakfast Inn, which offers treats, bowls, towels, waste bags and a blanket for pups at check-in. There are also a fenced dog run and 30 acres of walking trails on the property.

You and Fido are invited to attend the Annual Pints For Paws Homebrewing and Craft Beer Festival in support of the SPCA of Anne Arundel County. Over 40 home brewers and local craft breweries will be offering samples of their signature beers to sip in the company of your loyal companion. While quenching your thirst as you move from one brewer to the next, don’t forget to shop for your trusted drinking partner at the canine-related vendors on site. There will also be live bands, food trucks and a silent auction. Each attendee receives a commemorative pint glass to take home.

The Annual Pints For Paws Homebrewing and Craft Beer Festival will be June 10. Rest and relaxation await at Graduate Annapolis, a dog-friendly hotel offering Fido treats at check-in and an outdoor dog park on the second floor.

Bring your canine companion to Pooch Paw-Ty in celebration of National Dog Party Day. This three-hour event is packed with family-friendly activities, including visits with the Pierce County Sheriff K9 Team, America’s Next Top Dog costume contest, and live training by All Ears Petcare. As you make your way between activities, pick up a complementary puppuccino for Fido, stop for pet photos, and enter the "ruffle drawing" for a chance to win prizes!

Pooch Paw-Ty takes place on June 21. After a fun-filled afternoon, retreat to the pet-friendly Holiday Inn Express Hotel & Suites Puyallup. Once Fido is well rested, head to Habitat Dog Park at Meridian Habitat Park & Community Center to meet the four-legged locals.
