20 Halloween Dog Costumes That Are All The Rage


Looking to Dress Your Doggie Up?

Dressing your dog up for Halloween or any special event has become the trendy thing to do for more festive fun.   We thought you would enjoy seeing our list of Hot, Top Picks for transforming your pet this year.   Check out our must-have list of homemade and store-bought dog costume winners!

Let's dive into our creative outfits that you can put together on a dime first.


If you have a solid black dog, don't miss this opportunity to make a Skeleton Dog Costume!   All you need is some non-toxic white paint.   Crayola makes a kid's paint that is just perfect for this.    Simply paint the "bones" on your dog.    It will wash right off with a little water.

Note:  Pay special attention to keep away from their eyes.

Paint your dog like a skeleton for the perfect halloween costume.



Has your dog had surgery?   Did the vet send home this funny looking "lamp-shade" thing that went around their head to inhibit gnawing?   If so, you have the perfect beginnings to turn your dog into a delicious Martini Dog Costume!    You could make the olives on a stick using any sized rubber balls.   A little green and red paint should do the trick.

Who doesn't just love Hershey Kisses?    Now your pup can be one too.  Grab some tin foil and form around your dog's head and body.   Use a broken large rubber band to make a chin strap for the headpiece.   For the "kisses" tag, you could use white paper or parchment paper cut into a long thin strip.  Write "KISSES" on the tag with a dark marker.

Help your pup show their American pride by painting some stars and stripes on their fur for a Flag Dog Costume.    Pet Hangout's Critter Fur Color comes in many colors and is perfect for creating this look.

Have a tee-tiny doggie?  Cute a hole in a bath scrubber and fit around your dog's body.   How cute is this?

Have a larger doggie?    Grab an old dress shirt and tie and fit on your dog to become the world's first business dog!

An old-school costume that is always in style!   Grab a sheet and cut 3 holes - 2 for eyes and 1 for the snout.  Loosely secure the sheet around your dog's body by tying sheet in a knot.   To add extra fun, write Halloween terms like "BOO" or "Trick Or Treat" on the sides!   You now have a Ghostly Dog Costume!

Make a tag like TY babies wear and turn your pup into an extra large sized TY Baby!   Too, too cute!
