At Halloween, kids aren’t the only ones who get to dress up and enjoy treats. Hundreds of dog lovers get their pets into the act with dog Halloween costumes. The following are the top 10 costumes for dogs this Halloween.
The jailbird outfit with the classic black & white stripes will bring a smile to any dog lover’s face. Make sure you get a funny hat to complete the look.
How cute would your little pooch be with a halo and a pair of silk wings? After all, aren’t they all little angels?
Okay, maybe they’re not all little angels. The bright red color of most devil costume is really eye-catching. Add a red cape or bow tie and a pair of horns and you’ve got the perfect little devil.
Or should that be Superdog? Put him in the red & blue tights with the big “S” on the chest and you’ll have a dog of steel. Top it off with red boots or footies.
5. Bride & Groom
If you’ve got two dogs, bride and groom costumes are a great way to include them both. The groom costume is especially effective with a breed such as the Bulldog, which often looks a little unsettled anyway.
Pirate costumes are popular right now with the Pirates of the Caribbean movies, and your dog can help you complete your outfit. A bandana and an eye patch will give your dog the necessary look, and he can replace the parrot as your trusty sidekick.
If you’re lucky enough to have a dog that will accept a clown nose for more than two seconds, this is the perfect costume for you. Even without the nose, you can get a pretty good looking clown with a crazy wig and some bright, colorful duds.
8. King or Queen
Your dog probably already gets treated like royalty, so why not complete the effect? Velvet robes, crowns and jewel-studded collars will make your pet into a regal figure.
Maybe your dog would like to spend a day in your cat’s shoes? Why not try dressing him up as a different animal even – pigs, cows, bunny rabbits and frogs are just a few of your options.
If your dog is willing to put up with a hat for the night, there are lots of cute flower costumes you can get. Even if they won’t go for the hat, you can get some costumes that have neck pieces made to look like petals or leaves.
Whatever costume you decide on, just make sure you try it on a few times before Halloween night so your dog gets used to it. The last thing you want is having the costume torn up when he’s thrashing around trying to get out of it!
