One of my favorite times of the year is Halloween – I simply love the spookiness, amazing costumes and oh yes of course, the candy.
While I love to see parents and children out and about in their costumes, trick or treating, what makes me laugh even more is the great array of dog Halloween costumes which are now available. Whether your pooch is staying at home to guard your ‘castle’ against ghosts, ghouls and things that go bump in the night – or whether he is heading out on the candy trail with your little ones, make sure he is dressed appropriately.
While it can be a lot of fun to create your own handmade Halloween costume for your dog, some of us simply don’t have the time, much less the creative skills. However, even if that’s the case don’t let your dog miss out as there are now some really cool costumes you can buy – and ones which won’t break the bank either.
Here’s my round-up of some of the best cute Halloween Costumes for Dogs – all of which can be ordered online, ready for your dog’s big Halloween night.
DC Comics™ Halloween Batman Dog Costume
If your dog has the ears for it, does it get any cuter than this DC Comics™ Halloween Batman Dog Costume? Available in six sizes and machine washable this costume is perfect for your pooch to pose for a great photo.
Just as an aside when I was little I had a dachshund called Midge who used to go absolutely crazy with delight if you sang the original TV show Batman music to him. Don’t ask me why, it was just his thing 🙂
No Halloween would be complete without a pumpkin or three – and now your dog can even get in on the act with this Thrills & Chills™ Halloween Pumpkin Dog Costume.
This is the perfect costume for those dogs who may have, ahem, a little middle age spread shall we say. Flattering from every angle and what canine isn’t suited by that classic combination of orange and green!
Do your kids love playing Pokémon, well Fido need not miss out on the fun with this Rubies Halloween Pikachu Dog Costume. Not only will the colour help him stand out from the crowd but the stylish hood means he can go incognito if he has any ‘tricking’ to do.
It comes in four sizes so is suitable for a wide range of dogs.
I’m not sure how much this Thrills & Chills™ Halloween Caterpillar Dog Costume has to do with the spooky season but I had to include it simply because it is so cute.
If the soft colors don’t have you ready to buy I think the pom-pom antennae just might! It comes in small, medium and large so no dog is safe from this costume.
Thrills & Chills™ Halloween Hot Dog Costume
Well it simply had to be done, didn’t it? What better disguise for your dog than a bun and some mustard to top the lot off with this Thrills & Chills™ Halloween Hot Dog Costume.
If your pup is intent on grabbing as many (dog safe) treats as he can this year, then this costume will ensure he is well and truly undercover!
Whatever you both wear, have a very Happy Halloween with your pup. Just two quick things to remember – don’t let your pooch get his paws on any candy this Halloween, as chocolate can be deadly for dogs! Plus all Halloween costumes should always be kept away from naked flames.
