In consideration of Detroit Tigers, Inc. ("Club") allowing me to bring my dog into Comerica Park ("Ballpark") on May 3, August 31, and/or September 27, 2022 to participate in Bark in the Park ("Event"), I, on behalf of myself and/or my child, hereby agree to the following:
1. Participation. I acknowledge and agree that I will, upon entering and continuously thereafter, inspect the area where I will be permitted to watch the game with my dog and determine that it is safe and suitable for my dog's participation in the Event and further agree that if, at any time, I feel anything to be unsafe, including the threat from other dogs participating in the Event, I will immediately advise a Club Representative or Stadium Security of such unsafe condition(s) and will leave the area. I further warrant and represent that my dog has received its annual vaccinations, including rabies, is in good health and is able to tolerate the presence of crowds and other dogs and does not normally demonstrate dangerous or aggressive behavior towards persons or other dogs, and will be kept on a leash at all times while at the Ballpark. For reasons of safety and convenience, I agree to abide by all rules, instructions and directions given in connection with the Event, including, without limitation, to promptly leave the Ballpark with my dog if asked to do so for any reason whatsoever. I understand that every human and every dog needs their own ticket to attend. All dogs must wear an identification tag to the game and be accompanied by someone 18 years of age or older.
