Your Dog as Another Animal

dog costume ideas for halloweenHow ironic would it be if you dressed your dog as another animal? Gather dog costume ideas by using your dog’s physique and color to match them with an animal from the wild. For instance, if you’ve got a tan golden retriever, throw on a mane, and he’s now a lion! If you’ve got a small gray pomeranian, give her some long ears and poof! She’s a bunny. Animal costumes can be as simple as finding a small head accessory rather than a full-body costume.

Favorite Characters

We’re sure you watch your favorite movies and TV shows at home with your dog. Play into your love of binge-watching by dressing up your canine as your favorite character. Drape a royal blue or black cape on your cute dogs and they can be Superman and Batman! Or, with a few accessories from a costume store, your dog can be one of the Star Wars droids, or even Darth Vader himself!

Dog and Owner Costumes

  • Daenerys Targaryen and her dragon
  • Jockey and his horse
  • Red Riding Hood and the Big Bad Wolf
  • Ariel (the Little Mermaid) and Flounder
  • Shaggy and Scooby Doo

The possibilities are endless!
