Don't leave your dog behind this Halloween- dress them up and include them in the night's festivities. Our dog costume guide will give you options for small and large breed dogs as well as some of the most popular pet costume choices for 2013. In order to really inspire you, we will start off with an adorable slow motion montage video of dogs in costumes!
The slow motion makes the dogs 10X more adorable.
Small Breed Dog costumes
Small breed dogs have many options. If you are living in a colder region and want to bring your dog out trick or treating, something form fitting that covers their body is a good option. Our dinosaur or shark pet costumes are great choices if you want to keep your pooch covered and ready to join in the festivities. One of our NFL pet costumes is another possibility for keeping your pup warm Halloween night. On the opposite end, there are less cumbersome choices, like our pet bat costume that will allow your pup full range of motion (if they are the type to fret when you dress them up).
Large Breed Dog costumes
Unlike your typical lap dog, many large breed dogs have never been dressed up by their owners. Larger dogs might put up a fuss over a costume that feels too confining so we recommend costumes that tie around the neck but don't have to go over the whole body. Our Superman or Batman dog costumes are nice choices for bigger dogs. A loose-fitting dog NFL jersey costume can work well too (and, again, can add a little extra warmth) and can be used throughout the rest of the football season as well!
Pop Culture Dog Costume Ideas
Having your pet join in the trick or treating fun can make for great memories. If the family is going out as a themed group, have your dog dress accordingly! There are many options in our pet costumes category that fit right in with some of our most popular group themes like Star Wars, Ghostbusters, or Despicible Me Minions. Or if you were planning to go out solo on Halloween, you could always dress your dog up as Waldo for a funny couples costume idea.
In the end, it is best to pick a costume for your pet based on their personality. Make sure they will feel comfortable in the outfit you choose for them so that they can have just as much fun as you this Halloween! Do you like to dress your pet in costumes?

Ah, sweet Halloween memories.
