You love your dog. You love Halloween. So yes, of course, you need to get your pooch decked out in a hilarious (some might say ridiculous) costume this October 31. And here’s the best part: you can completely stop stressing about your outfit if your costumed dog will be with you because he or she will instantly be the life of the party! (And the star of all the photos!)
But before you get all caught up in these adorable costumes, think about your dog's specific likes and dislikes. For example, the easiest, and often most affordable costumes, are the hat-style ones — check out the Viking hat! But some dogs may not like having something on their head, which could make that affordable choice a complete waste of money. If you choose a full-body costume, closely read the sizing information: too tight and it will be uncomfortable but too loose and it can be a safety hazard. Look for costumes that are easy to put on and take off — usually it’s the ones that wrap around the dog’s body without having to go over the head. Also, ahem, be aware if the costume will limit your dog’s bodily functions.
We’ve rounded up some of the cutest, most hilarious costumes that are out there. Once you’ve picked the perfect one for your pooch, be sure to order it well in advance so there will be time for your dog to get accustomed to wearing it. Take my advice —treats help!
