Football is in full swing now and a lot of people are shopping for football jersey’s for dog’s. I know my husband is an avid fan and of course, dresses our dog in his team’s jersey. His team differs from mine, so the jersey we have is biased to his team.
Not everyone is a fan, and everyone’s team is different, of course. Even in friends circles, you can have four different teams within a small group of friends. I understand the reasoning behind the jersey’s, so of course it’s cute to see dog’s wearing them.
Shopping For Football Jersey’s for Dog’s.
I’ve seen a lot of online stores advertising football jersey’s for dog’s lately. Even places like Etsy will have all of your teams. Whether your dog remotely cares about football is neither here nor there. Of course the owner is going to dress the dog up in hopes the dog will help their team score.
I could never tell whether the dog wearing the jersey helps with the teams scores, but hey, there’s always next game. Maybe it’s like the sock superstition. In order for your team to do well, your dog has to sport the jersey!
The Material Of The Jersey’s.
Just like with the humans sports jerseys, the dog’s version is made out of the same material. Or so it feels anyway. I will admit, we are a football household, so of course we each root for our own team. While my dog only has my husband’s team’s jersey, I’m okay with it. Besides, my team loses more than they win. Truth!
As for the material, the jersey’s are pretty similar to the human versions. They’re cut similarly, and they feel pretty much the same. What about the cost?
Are Football Jersey’s for Dog’s Expensive?
The cost of these jerseys’s doesn’t seem ridiculous like some football items for humans. I do know that if you get a specific player and their number during the peak of their profession, they can be expensive. As for the dog’s version, they seem pretty close in cost.
On average, they run:
$42 on Bitch New York.
$29.99 on Petco
Around $19.99 on Amazon
And so on.
As for the quality of each jersey from these sites, I’m going to wager that my favorite site, Bitch New York has the quality material that I would be looking for. There have been some clothing items I’ve ordered from Amazon lately that are less than desirable. I often regret getting some clothing from Amazon, so I try to stick with household items only.
As for Petco, I have gotten some quality clothes from them recently. I also like that they have a decent return policy, regardless of whether I bought the items online or in the store.
If you’re anything like me, you value the good return policies, especially when it comes to clothing. What if you change teams? What then?
Changing Football Teams? Taboo?
Okay, don’t get mad because I’m the one to point this out. We all know that avid fans can change teams sometimes. Usually when we’re younger and we don’t know any better. But it has happened. I’ve had the same team since I was 18 and haven’t changed teams, but I’ve seen some that have. Some people follow players versus teams. This might be the smart way to go, though, what do you do when they’re retired? Or seriously injured and they can no longer play?
Since I’ve yet to change teams and I don’t exactly follow players, I suppose that question would best be answered by player followers. In any case, once a certain time period passes, we know retailers don’t take apparel back. So, in the event you change teams, maybe selling on social media is your next best bet.
IF I was a player follower and not a team follower, I would be inclined to special order a jersey for my dog. I do know that some sites will have just random colors. Nothing to do with football per se. I’ve seen pink jersey’s for female dog’s. Black jersey’s for male dog’s. In any event, I would order one specially with my players name on the jersey and their player number.
This would also be proactive in that it doesn’t offend my friends that go for a different team, but rather it’s about the player.
Conclusion on Football Jersey’s for Dogs.
Shopping for football jersey’s for dog’s is fairly easy since there’s so many pet stores that carry them. It’s not only festive and in the spirit, but it might also bring good luck to your team. If you plan on bringing your dog to the game, why not? Besides, dog’s in football jerseys are cute. Who can deny?
If you’re not a football fan, there are baseball jersey’s as well. Maybe your kids play sports and you order an unnumbered jersey in your kids school colors. Once our kids go back to school and participation in sports becomes a thing again, it would be pretty fun to have your dog show support.
My daughter plays volleyball, so even though we’re indoors, the car ride there might get her more in the spirit. Whatever the reason for the jersey, there’s lots out there.
Which team do you root for? Do you dress your dog’s in football jersey’s too? Where did you go shopping for football jersey’s for your dog’s?
