This is a great online store with just too many pet costumes to include. So let’s focus on the classic Halloween costumes for dogs. Frankenpup Halloween Dog Costume is always one of my all-time faves and it really looks great on the smoosh-face dogs like Pugs, Boston Terriers and French Bulldogs. Comes in sizes XS to Large. (Starts at $16.97) There are several ghost costumes, but I give paws up to Rubies Big Dog Glow in the Dark Skeleton Dog Costume as it’s for the bigger dogs, which don’t always get a lot of costume choice. Comes in XXL and XXXL. (Starts at $27.97). Another traditional favorite is the bat costume. Your dog can wing his way into Halloween fun with this relatively easy to wear set of wings. The Zack and Zoey Bat Glow Wing Dog Harness Costume comes in sizes S-XL. (Starts at $25.97). The company includes a sizing guide with instructions on how to measure your dog so you get the right size.
This online store out of Los Angeles has some pretty unique Halloween dog costumes. I really love the Ronald McDonald Halloween Costume in sizes S-XL ($68). Another unique and cute small dog costume is the Boxing Halloween Costume, available in M-XL ($68). And a third fun and easy-to-wear costume is the Cute Cow Halloween Dog Costume, available in sizes XS-XL. Just a reminder these are small dog costumes, so the XL is for a dog around 24 pounds and under.
If you and your dog like your Halloween accessories a little more tasteful than booful, you will love the bandanas and bowties from The Foggy Doggy. First up is the Pumpkin Patch Dog Bandana, which reverses to a charcoal gingham. Or, go a little more batty with the Going Batty Dog Bandana, also reversible to an orange star pattern. Both come in sizes S-L. ($26). For those that prefer a fall theme to a spooky one, choose between the Pumpkin Spice Flannel Dog Bandana (same sizes and price as other bandanas) or the orange Satsuma Dog Bow Tie, which comes in Small or Large at $19.
For those of us who love to shop at Target, there is a whole section online of dog costumes, way more than you’ll find in the brick and mortar store. Some unique faves of mine are the Retro Camper Dog and Cat Costume (Sizes XS-XXL for $13), the Candy Corn Dog and Cat Sweater for those dogs that prefer something a little more simple (XS-XXL at $13) and the Lobster Frontal Dog and Cat Costume (XS-XL at $10).
If you are a sci-fi fan like me, then beam your doggie up in a Star Trek: Original Series Spock Dog Costume. Available in size M for $28.95. They’ve also got some hilarious Trekkie Halloween sweatshirts for humans.
Yes, even the AKC has costumes for sale in its online store, and I really like its Halloween dog accessories. First place goes to the Ghostbuster Dog Bow Tie for those dogs who are not big on costumes, but still love the attention a dapper bow tie will bring. Available in S-L for $7. Another easy-to-wear accessory is the Witch Hat, suitable for all dogs for $10.12. But if you want to talk costumes and are a bit of foodie just like your dog, the Taco ($15.76, suitable for all dogs), Pizza Slice ($19.42, suitable for all dogs) or Hot Dog Costumes ($18.89, suitable for all dogs) might be the most pawlicious pick for you both.
I hope you found something fun for you and your dog in Dogster’s 2021 Dog Halloween Costume List. If you found one you think is pumpkin perfect and should be on the list, email us at [email protected] and we will include it.
