When it comes to dressing your dog up for Halloween, it’s important to lay a few ground rules. First of all, if your dog hates it, don’t do it. Furthermore, it doesn’t need to be overly complicated — being able to get a costume on and off as needed ensures a happy pooch. Finally, you should be going for cute, not scary — that Cujo costume is likely too real for anyone to appreciate it. With all this in mind, we compiled a handful of hilarious Halloween costumes for your dog to suit up in on October 31. If you bring them along with you, don’t play tricks and do bring the treats.
