7 Ways Minnesota Mutts Can Show Their Vikings Pride

Being a Vikings fan can be a bit ruff. But we’re hearty folks, not deterred by a disappointing sports season (or the equally disappointing October blizzard season). Win or lose, at least we have fashion. Dress your doggo in Vikings dog gear so she can raise a paw in support of our Purple People Eaters. Skol!

1. Vikings Reversible Bandana

Petco

Since pupper is so superstitious about home and away games, this reversible bandana will help him show up the right way. It’s the kind of accessory he can wear all season long so everyone knows where he stands…or sits. After all, he can’t have the neighborhood confusing him for a Packers fan.

This bandana is available in S/M and L/XL sizes and is designed to fit all collars.

Get it from Petco for $12.

2. Vikings Puffer Vest

Amazon

You can never be too prepared for changing temps in Minnesota. Keep this puffy vest on hand for those pupkin spice latte runs when the weather takes a turn—Patagonia for you, Vikings for your furbabe.  

Get it on Amazon for $17-55.

3. Vikings Leash and Collar

Petco

Show your purple and gold pride with this leash or collar…or h*ck, why not get both?! Best not to leave any room for doubt about where your good boi’s allegiance stands. 

Get them from Petco for $12 and $10

4. Vikings Hoodie

Amazon

The Twin Cities knows no shortage of hipsters, and I’m pretty sure hoodies are their official uniform, aren’t they? We’ve definitely heard that somewhere. If your four-legged fren isn’t about to be seen in any old jersey, throw on this cute and casual hoodie so her lewk looks effortless.

Get it on Amazon for $19.

5. Vikings Plush Football Toy

Amazon

Nothing says #PregameStrong like running a few plays with your own little Kirk Cousins before you settle in to cheer on the Vikes next Sunday. You’ll get more bang for your buck with this toy because it’ll double as a great way to take out any of your halftime frustration. Tug of war, anyone? Grrrrr.

Get it on Amazon for $13.

6. NFL Premium Dog Jersey

Amazon

Is there a more iconic way to show your purple and gold pride than by throwing on your officially licensed jersey? Nope, didn’t think so. Dog’ll not only look classically furbulous while repping her favorite team, but she’ll also be diplomatic about it by not choosing favorites—a fan of all players and a fan for all seasons. 

Get it on Amazon for $25.

7. Viking Hat with Braids

Amazon

We saved the best for last and your mascot deserves the best! Nothing can keep the Vikes from victory when they have your furry little buddy watching along at home in his helmet and braids. And, you know, one look at this cuteness will keep you smiling all the way through the game, no matter the score. 

Get it on Amazon for $10.
