16 Funny Dog Costumes That'll Be the Highlight of Halloween
When it comes to Halloween costumes, why should kids get all the fun? Dogs are the ideal candidates for dressing up, mainly because they won't suddenly decide that they really, really need to go trick-or-treating as Spiderman after practically begging to be a pirate this year. Plus, everyone likes to see a good parade of pets in disguise—and this may be why the dog costume section has grown exponentially over the past few years.
No longer are the options either "hot dog" (made expressly for Dachshunds), "devil horns" (always with a bulldog modeling on the package for some odd reason), and then the occasional dog hoodie with a skeleton on it (that just brings to mind an unfortunate visit to the veterinarian's office). Instead, welcome to a whole new world where funny dog costumes exist as an entire category in the Halloween shopping landscape.
From an outfit that basically turns your dog into one of The Golden Girls or horror movie icon Chucky, we've rounded up just a few of our favorite picks. At minimum, you need to get at least one for a photo op, but really, why limit yourself? And remember, if your dog isn't into costumes or having things on their head/body, don't force it! Respect their needs and try a fun bandana or festive collar instead.
