The spookiest time of the year is coming up soon! (And I don’t mean the election…) Our pets have done a lot to keep us sane and entertained this year, so make sure you let them celebrate Halloween in style. We’ve collected some of the most pawsome ideas for costumes for your pet. Check out our list below!
Clothing Optional: Always be sure your pet enjoys their costume and that it fits well. Costumes can be uncomfortable, difficult to move in, or downright scary for some pets so be certain that your pet gets as much enjoyment out of their costume as you do!
We are suckers for the classics. This hot dog costume looks good enough to eat! For some extra fun, try dressing yourself up as ketchup or mustard, or put a creepy spin on it as the hot dog vendor!
“Judge me by my size, do you?” Did you binge watch the Mandalorian? Does your pet love Star Wars as much as you? Then this Yoda costume will be right up your alley.
3. A Fearless Duo
4. UPS Dog
We all know and love @upsdogs (and if you don’t, you should check them out for adorable pups and heartwarming stories). This Halloween let your pup dress up as their favorite Man or Woman in Brown. They could even carry some Milkbones to hand out to friends!
“Holy Halloween, Batcat!” Just turn on the Bat Signal and the cutest batcat will arrive to save the day!
6. Ghostbuster Dog
I ain’t afraid of no ghosts! In this costume your pup will be ready to take on Gozer or the Staypuff Marshmallow Man in style!
7. Ursula and Ariel
Are you a Disney fan? Do you want to get into the Halloween spirit too? Then this combo Ursula and Ariel costume is perfect for you and your pet! Or try any princess & villain or princess & sidekick combo for some Disney fun this Halloween.
8. Hear me roar!
9. Where’s Waldo?
You might have a hard time finding your pet in this costume, but never fear! Waldo will turn up eventually on all of his adventures.
10. Captain America
Is your dog a su-paw hero? Can she leap tall buildings in a single bound? Does he fight for truth and justice? Then check out this (and many other) super costume to unleash the hero within.
11. Prisoner K9INM8
Maybe that supaw hero caught your pet in the act! He may not be the Joker or Jean Valjean, but if your pet is a mischievous munchkin then consider this costume and let your pup’s personality make a jailbreak.
12. Penny Wise
If you and your pet are into terrifying thrillers, then this Penny Wise costume is perfect for your pooch. But make sure IT doesn’t scare the neighbors!
And if you are over Halloween and can’t wait for Christmas, this walkable tree costume is definitely for you!
This list is by no means complete. Use your imagination or check out Chewy.com for plenty of great ideas.
And don’t forget to keep your pets safe this Halloween! Keep candy, wrappers, and decorations away from your pets so that they do not ingest them. Be sure that their costumes do not limit movement, hearing, and sight or impede their ability to breathe, bark, eat/drink, or go potty. Watch the front door to prevent potential escape by stressed or overwhelmed pets. Check their ID tag and/or microchip so that you can recover your pet if they do escape. Consider putting your pet in a quiet space away from the front door with their bed and some favorite toys to help them stay happy and calm this Halloween.
