Halloween Costume Ideas for Pets

Halloween is the most spooktacular time of the year! Everyone is dressed in their most creative costumes to celebrate the night, so why not dress up your four-legged best friend to join in on the festivities? Here are a few of our favorite Halloween costume ideas for your dogs & cats this year:

For Dogs

Teddy Bear

What can possibly be cuter than a puppy dressed up as a Teddy Bear? Petco’s Teddy Bear Illusion Costume is a comfortable way to get your dog in the Halloween spirit.

Sports Fan

Support your favorite team with a pet jersey! Chewy has all your sports needs to dress up your dog in your favorite football, baseball or basketball team this Halloween! It’s perfect to have on hand during the season too.


Another great dog costume option is a banana! It’s funny, but also incredibly cute to wear all night long.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle

Have your dog ready to fight crime as a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle! If you have a child that loves the movies and books, this is a perfect option!


Why not dress up your friendly dog as a ferocious creature? Lions are cute and popular costumes during Halloween! They’re incredibly easy to dress up your larger dog and look especially cute on blonde or golden colored dogs!

For Cats

Princess Leia

May the force be with you! The Princess Leia buns are perfect to dress up the cat that doesn’t like to be dressed up. Simply place them around her face, and she’s ready to get spooked all night long!


Add a little magic this Halloween with your cat in a unicorn costume! The rainbow mane and sparkly horn are sure to make your cat the cutest at the party.


Dress up your pet as your favorite food. From cheeseburgers to tacos, there are plenty of options for both cats and dogs!


The witch hat from Target is another great option for the cat that hates costumes. Give her a spooky look with ease!
