Who says humans are the only ones that can wear Halloween costumes? Dressing up the family dog on Halloween has become as much as an October 31st tradition as pumpkin carving and cramming as much candy into a pillowcase as possible (Yes, a pillow case makes the best candy bag. Fight us). Whether you want to buy a dog Halloween costume just for your furry friend, or if you want to force them into a dog Halloween costume that matches the whole family, to include your furry friend in the family costume or just want them in a costume for five-minutes for a fun photo, there are costumes aplenty. The best small and large dog Halloween costumes are silly and memorable while being comfortable-ish. After all, stuffing a 50-pound dog into a large dog Halloween costume that’s a hot dog or a 25-pound dog into a small dog Halloween costume that’s a little box of french fries isn’t easy — for them or you.
Whether you’re looking for your big dog or your small dog, there are a number of great dog Halloween costumes worth buying — even if it’s just for the family photo.
