Record set for most dogs in a costume parade at a San Diego Padres Game

Sunday, July 31st, 2011

PETCO(TM) and the San Diego Padres are excited to announce they have set a Guinness World Record(R) for most dogs in a pet costume parade. Guinness World Record officials were at PETCO Park’s annual “Dog Days of Summer” event, along with 337 history-making dogs, to verify that the world record was set. The annual infield costume parade was lead by Tillman, the world famous skateboarding dog, as dogs paraded around showing off their Padres spirit. The record setting took place during the Wednesday, July 27, 2011 7:05 pm game as the San Diego Padres took on the Arizona Diamondbacks.

“It has been an amazing record attempt and I’m happy to say it was successful,” said Freddie Hoff, adjudicator for Guinness World Records. “The 337 dogs in the costume parade was way above the set amount and on behalf of Guinness World Records, I’d like to say congratulations.”

“At PETCO we are passionate about having dogs active in all aspects of our life and thanks to our partnership with the San Diego Padres, this includes inviting hundreds of dogs out to the ballpark every year,” says Greg Seremetis, Vice President of Marketing for PETCO. “We were happy to sponsor tickets for two pet parents per dog in hopes of getting the community rallied behind the Guinness World Record attempt and we are thankful to all who participated.”

Dogs also had the opportunity to participate in a pre-game “tail” gate party and prior to the on-field pet parade prizes were awarded to the costumed dogs in a variety of categories. In the spirit of PETCO’s commitment to “Think Adoption First,” a local PETCO adoption partner was in attendance to educate the public on the importance of pet adoption and help find pets a loving home.
