For people who truly love Halloween, picking out a great dog costume for their furry family member is just as big of a deal as planning what the humans will wear. Not only does it make a great photo opportunity for Instagram, but it’s a sure way to get all the smiles as your walk through the neighborhood on October 31. As you know, there are so many options for pups small and large (and extra-small and extra-large), but you can’t go wrong with something funny. After all, seeing a pup walking down the street with “arms” is exactly what we need after the year we’ve had. That’s why we’ve runded up the best funny (and obviously cute!!) Halloween costumes for dogs, including TV and movie characters, food options and so much more.
A quick tip: Always measure your dog before ordering a costume — usually around the neck (snug like a collar), around the chest (at the widest part) and down the body (from the base of the neck to the base of the tail). The breed examples given on sizing charts may not match up with your own pup, so grabbing a measuring tape is the best way to ensure a perfect fit. And remember: If your dog is in any way destressed when you put the costume on, skip it. If they cannot easily breathe, walk or go to the bathroom, take it off immediately. Avoid clothing with dangling objects that can be swallowed, do not dye your pet’s fur and never leave your pet unattended in a costume.
