Our picks for doggie Halloween costumes for this year

Reading Time: 3 minutes

It’s almost that time. Well, okay, it’s still over two months away. But we still think it might be worth getting a headstart on your Halloween costume shopping for your dog this year. That’s especially true if you’re ordering online since delivery times have been delayed so much lately.

Even if traditional plans for pet parades and many other in-person events may be cancelled this year, we suspect there will likely be online pet Halloween costume contests and, of course, it’s always just fun to have a photo session with your pet in costume and show them off via social media.

And, don’t worry! We haven’t forgotten about the kitties! Stay tuned for an upcoming post of our Halloween costume picks for cats!

But, for now, we’ll start with the dogs. We checked out different retailers to see what they were offering and here’s some of our favorites:

1) This spider costume from Camlinbo made us smile. We also like how simple it is — you don’t have to worry about a lot of moving parts, such as hats and other accessories. Yet, it’s still definitely an attention-getter.

The price is $15.99 and it comes in medium, large and X-large.

2) Of course, if your dog is a little bit more of a butterfly than a spider, this Monarch costume from Rubie’s Pet Costume might be what you’re looking for. Again, we love the simplicity yet eye-catching and adorable combination.

This one comes in small, medium, large and X-large. Prices vary depending on size.

3) Most dogs are sweet to start with, but your pup could be a mega sweetie in this cookies and milk costume.

And, if your dog isn’t big on hats, the cookie part alone will probably work just fine.

Prices vary depending on size. The costume is available in small, medium and large.

4) Another one that we think will bring smiles to many is this Rubie’s Puppy Latte costume.

It’s available in small, medium, large and x-large. Prices vary by size.

Sharks seem to be very popular this year as costumes for pets. We especially like this Frisco Shark Attack Dog Costume because it looks both well-made and comfy for the dog.

It’s available for $16.99 in X-small, small, medium, large, X-large, and XX-large.
