Believe it or not, Halloween is right around the corner, and, as any good pet owner knows, you’ve got more than yourself to think about when it comes to costumes! There’s plenty of fun to be had by dressing up your four-legged sidekick, and the best Halloween dog costumes of 2019 offer up a wide variety of choices for your furry friend. 

Dog Costume Ideas 

When it comes to Halloween attire for pups, inspiration can strike anywhere. Your dog can easily be transformed into one of your favorite movie characters, such as Beetlejuice or Ariel, or take up a new profession (did someone call a shaggy doctor?) with a quick holiday wardrobe change. 

Whether you plan to suit your pooch up in an old standby, like a spider or a lion, or you want to opt for something a little more trendy, like Pennywise from It (yes, there’s a dog costume for that!), you’re sure to put a smile on everyone’s face once they see how cute your little Halloween star looks in his or her new getup. 

And, depending on what you choose, you may even be able to don a matching ensemble

Where to Buy Dog Costumes 

This year’s best dog costumes can be found at all of the usual suspects (think Chewy, Petco, and PetSmart), plus a few more unexpected finds — Party City, for instance, has one of the largest and cutest! — selections around.
