Top 7 Best Official NFL Fan Essentials to Get Your Dog Ready For Kicko
The 2017-18 NFL season kicks off tonight. You’ve picked up the beer, the snacks and laid claim to the sofa for your Thursday night viewing pleasure. Forgotten anything? How about sharing a little of the pigskin magic with your trusted furry sidekick who, let’s face it, will be giving up his evening walk for you. It’s time to let your pooch get in on the action and we’ve got just the ticket. Here are our picks for FAN-tastic official NFL fan gear for your pooch.
Every dog worth his chew-toy has a bandana, but not everyone has an official Seahawks pet collar bandana. What makes this one different is that it’s not simply a triangle of fabric that gets twisted and knotted over time; it’s an adjustable nylon collar with full metal buckle closure and a detachable, reflective, logo embroidered, polyester bandana. It never loses its shape and can be washed after each season.
Make the battle for the last nacho chip one of strength over speed with this official Oakland Raiders football themed tug toy. The sturdy nylon toy is equipped with a handle for him, a handle for you and a fun screen print of a football field gridiron across the top. Its compact size of just 5.5” x 12.5” means it packs easily and can come out quickly to settle those tailgate party treat disputes.
C’mon, let your little guy strut his stuff with this official Patriots reflective leash. Made from long-wearing 100% nylon, this 5’ dog lead features a reflective screen print of the Bronco’s logo that demonstrates true fan loyalty during daytime or night-time strolls. A sturdy, lobster-claw clip keeps your little guy safe and secure. Methinks this is the statement piece that every pooch needs.
Okay, not every dog can pull this sort of look off, but for those that can, I say rock it! Made from 100% polyester, this easy care outfit includes a fitted top and flippy little pleated skirt to give it that sassy cheerleader look. The Cowboys logo is screen printed across the back for all to see and because gals of all sizes should get a chance to cheer, it comes in XS to XXL! Go team!
Make your pooch feel extra special with his very own official NFL jersey. I’m not talking your standard off-the-rack team jersey, I’m talking custom! One with his name emblazoned across the back and sized for a perfect fit. These V-neck, polyester shirts have a micro-mesh body for breathability and are high-cut at the underside for continual comfort. Your favorite sports team logo will be included to make it clear to every man, woman and dog, just who your little guy is rooting for.
Let the collar do the talking while you’re walking. This stylin’ 100% nylon dog collar comes in true Bills colors with the team logo woven into the band. A color-coordinated black plastic clip keeps your pooch’s collar secure while a silver metal D-ring provides a sturdy anchor for his lead. An elegant yet discreet statement piece for the pooch of few words.
Doggone it; now you’re going to need to up your game if you want to keep up with logo’d little one! Why not pick up an official Steelers jersey that bears the name of superstar linebacker Von Miller. Whether you’re cheering from the bleachers, your man-cave or sitting shot-gun on the sofa with Rover, nothing sets the tone quicker than a genuine article. The lightweight pique body is made from easy care durable polyester mesh and the detailed, stitched down NFL shield at the front neck delivers authenticity to this super-fan must-have.
