Dawg Days of Summer At Miller Park
It seems like summer has just arrived in Milwaukee, after a long winter and short (wait, did it even happen?) spring, those “Dog Days of Summer” are definitely right around the corner. The “Dawg Days of Summer,” however, have started at Miller Park. From now through June 11, the Brewers are inviting fans to bring in photos of their dogs dressed in Brewers gear to the Brewers Team Store by Majestic at Miller Park.
Over the past couple of years it seems that more and more people are wearing Brewers gear in and around town. The team is hot right now and so is Brewers gear. At the same time, you also see more and more people dressing up their dogs in team gear. This Brewers contest will combine the two of those elements in which fans will put up their pooches for some great Brewers prizes.
“We have seen the demand for dog products rise in the last year,” said Jill Aronoff, Brewers Senior Director Merchandise Branding. “The vendors are offering a better selection now as well. Sales have been up so far this year and the best-selling items are the leashes, ball/rope toys and the Brewers pet jersey.”
A large display board will be set up at the Brewers Team Store by Majestic and will show off all the submitted photos of dogs in Brewers gear. A panel of judges selected by the Brewers will select five of their favorite pictures on Saturday, June 11. On Sunday, June 12 as the Brewers take on the St. Louis Cardinals the five photos will be shown on the new Miller Park scoreboard and will be judged via fan applause.
The winning dog will be able to come to Miller Park on Friday, June 24 for an on field appearance prior to the Brewers game vs. the Minnesota Twins. That day also happens to be National Take Your Dog To Work Day. The winning dog’s owner will also receive a $250 shopping spree to the Brewers Team Store by Majestic; four tickets to the June 24 game and a collection of Brewers dog gear. Additionally, all pet products will be 10% off that day at Miller Park.
The first 100 fans who bring their photo to the Brewers Team Store by Majestic (the contest started today and as of 3 p.m. today there were only a couple up there, so there is still time to act!) will receive a coupon for $5 off their next purchase at the store. The top four runners-up in the promotion will receive a $50 shopping credit in the Brewers Team Store by Majestic, a Brewers leash set, and a Brewers rope toy.
Please keep in mind that the only way you can enter the contest is to drop off your pet photo at the Brewers Team Store by Majestic at Miller Park. You can drop off your photo through June 11, so you have plenty of time. If it is easier for you to get to Miller Park while the team is on the road, you can stop by while the team is on the current seven-game road trip that ends Monday, June 6.
If you are coming to a game during the Mets series, June 7- 9 or the first two games of the Cardinals series, June 10 – 11, you can drop off your photo at that time. Store hours are Monday – Friday, 10 a.m. – 7 p.m.; Saturday, 10 a.m. – 6 p.m.; and Sunday, 11 a.m. – 4 p.m. The store is also open until one hour following Brewers home games. To contact the store, please call 414-902-4750.
A large selection of Brewers gear for both people and pets is available at the Brewers Team Store by Majestic. I have snapped a couple of shots of select items for sale. Leashes, t-shirts, bandanas, chew toys, dog bowls and ID badges are among the items available for your pups. John and Cait wish the best of luck to all the Brewers fans and their four-legged friends.
