About Us

It all started in the fall of 2006. Our mascot, Maceo, was attempting to find a quality dog collar to show his fan support for his favorite team, the Chicago Bears. And, being the completely spoiled pooch that he is, thought that it would also be nice if he could cheer on his beloved Cubbies as well during baseball season! At that time, he found it hard to find such athletic gear for dogs like him. After much begging, sitting, panting, shaking, and rolling over, Maceo convinced his owners to build AthleticPets.com. AthleticPets.com opened it's doors in January of 2007.....and the rest is history. We are a small, family-run business based out of the northwest suburbs of Chicago and are dedicated to 100% customer satisfaction. We go out of our way each day to make sure you are happy with your purchase and that the process is as quick and seamless as possible. In addition, being dog owners ourselves, we understand the need for quality in the gear we buy for our beloved pets!

We currently carry officially licensed sports products for NFL, MLB, NCAA, NHL, NBA and NASCAR teams. Our current inventory includes collars, leashes, jerseys, T-Shirts, ID tags, toys, bowls, sweaters, blankets and harnesses. Check back often as we are always adding new teams and products. If you are looking for a specific team or item, please let us know and we'll look into getting it for you. It is our goal to offer our products at a good price with exceptional service and fast, low-cost shipping. All of the products listed on our site are in stock and ready to ship!

At this time, for those of you who want to know, we do not wholesale our products to other retailers. We sell strictly to the pet public!!
