Most Popular Pet Accessories by Type

As a follow up to my previous blog, I had a series of questions as to the popularity of different types of pet accessories. Most of the questions centered around US sports teams and what were the top choices among owners for various accessories among pet owners. This post presents lists of some of the more common items that are used to adorn people’s pets with team spirit.

Collars

A collar is perhaps the most common piece of ‘clothing’ that would adorn any dog or cat (or other type of four legged pet). Numerous types of collars are available including one for any pro sports team in the US. College sports teams are also quite popular, but for the purposes of this post, we are going to be focused on professional sports teams (NFL, MLB, NHL, and NBA).

With that in mind, here are the most ordered team collars for 2018:

Chicago Cubs Collar

1. Seattle Seahawks

2. Chicago Cubs

3. Denver Broncos

4. Dallas Cowboys

5. New England Patriots

6. Green Bay Packers

7. Pittsburgh Steelers

8. Chicago Bears

9. Boston Red Sox

10. New York Yankees

Collar Tags

There are times when apparently pet owners do not choose to go for the full collar, but would rather simply place a Collar Tag on the existing collar to demonstrate their team allegiance. With that said, here are the most popular collar tags for 2018:

Pittsburgh STeelers Collar Tag

1. Seattle Seahawks

2. Pittsburgh Steelers

3. Dallas Cowboys

4. Green Bay Packers

5. New England Patriots

6. Denver Broncos

7. New Orleans Saints

8. Chicago Bears

9. San Francisco 49ers

10. Oakland Raiders

Bandannas

Rather than a collar or collar tag, a bandanna is a much easier way to go. It can be easily taken on and off and therefore quickly altered for the various sports seasons of the year. Bandannas are also easily washable and can last for several seasons. Here are the top 10 team affiliated pet bandannas for 2018:

New England Patriots Bandana

1. New England Patriots

2. Seattle Seahawks

3. Pittsburgh Steelers

4. Dallas Cowboys

5. Denver Broncos

6. Green Bay Packers

7. New York Giants

8. San Francisco 49ers

9. San Francisco Giants

10. New York Yankees

 

Jerseys

Then again, when dressing up a pet, why not just go for the gusto and put them in a jersey of your favorite team. This is another very popular (although slightly more expensive) way to have your pet display your team affiliation.

Seattle Seahawks Jersey

1. Seattle Seahawks

2. Denver Broncos

3. New England Patriots

4. Dallas Cowboys

5. Philadelphia Eagles

6. Green Bay Packers

7. Pittsburgh Steelers

8. Chicago Cubs

9. San Francisco 49ers

10. Carolina Panthers

 

So…what does this all mean

It is clear from the lists above that pet owners who choose to adorn their four-legged friends in regalia reflecting their sports affiliations strongly favor National Football League items. While it also seems that pet owners in Seattle, New England, Pittsburgh, and Dallas appear to be the most fanatical, anyone can find any of the above items for their favorite professional or college sports team. So c’mon all of you college football fans as well as fans of the NHL, NBA or MLB….let’s jump in and start to clothe our pets and show people from other parts of the country (as well as those that root for sports other than the NFL) have team spirit and are willing to embarrass their pets as much as anyone else is!

As we check out other sites, and as we switch between seasons, I will try to publish updates to the lists above to let everyone know the impact they are making on the pet team affiliation. Personally, my pets have several different items and I adorn them as per the appropriate season (both college and professional teams). I don’t think that people would recognize my pets WITHOUT some sort of team parapharnalia on their bodies. I think that pets deserve the same rights as us and our children when it comes to rooting for your favorite team…we just have the advantage of selecting their teams for them!! 🙂

Thanks for reading my blog and please let me know of any amusing stories that you may have of your pets and their sports team adornments. I, as well as everyone else reading this, would love to hear them! GO TEAM!!!
