Halloween Costumes for Dogs

Halloween costumes for pets are big business. They are an intersect between the seven-billion-dollar Halloween industry and the sixty-billion-dollar pet industry. We love our cats and dogs, and we love to dress them up in costumes, too. While they make cat costumes, it’s easier to get toothpaste back in the tube than to put a Mario Brothers costume on your average feline.

That leaves dogs. Mans simpler, more biddable companion. While our cat protests if her food is the wrong temperature (Nutrish soft food, room temperature. ROOM TEMPERATURE!) our dog will gladly allow you to dress him in the most ridiculous of get-ups.

Pageant queen? He rocks a tiara. Dorothy from the Wizard of Oz? There’s no place like home. He will even go meta and wear a cat costume.

If you are looking to dress up your best friend this Halloween, act fast to get one of these adorable pet costumes shipped in time for Halloween. You probably want a week in advance at least to ensure timely arrival.

A classic sci-fi epic now comes to a galaxy, and a dog house, near you.

Dewback Pet Rider Costume

Star Wars Darth Vader Dog Costume


I don’t know why this is so funny, but it is. My favorite is a lion costume, which would look hilarious on my Pomeranian.

 Whether your dog is Marvel or DC, there’s a super hero costume for it.
I do wish there were more choices for female heroes, but that’s just true for fangirls of every species.
Wonder Woman is first here because Wonder Woman should always be first.

Price: $19.33

No matter what you decide to dress up your dog as for Halloween, have fun with it. Include your dog in your family’s group costume, whether your Halloween theme is Star Wars, Gone with the Wind, Mine Craft, the Wizard of Oz (safe choice as Toto, so consider that lion costume to switch it up.)

And don’t forget to take a picture and share it on social media. I swear I like seeing pictures of your dogs as much as I do seeing your kids. The dogs are less hopped up on sugar!
