Halloween is right around the corner which means it’s time to start planning out this year’s killer costume combination! Of course, while your own costume is important you’ve got to make sure your furry friend is looking just as stylish on All Hallows’ Eve. Perhaps a matching costume is in the cards? Anything is possible if you put your mind to it and we’re here to help.
If you’re at a loss for what to dress up your pets as then you’ve come to the right place as we’ve got fun and affordable costume ideas for you from all the top brands.
While you can do your best to get any of your pets in the spooky spirit, we’re going to stick to dogs and cats this time around as those are where the easiest and readily available pet costumes usually reside. Feel free to dress up your hamster or rabbits if you want though! Don’t let us stop you from flexing your creativity.
A quick tip: Be sure to measure your dog before purchasing any costume. Because dog costumes are not manufactured the same, your dog can be a medium in one costume and an extra-large in another.

Whether you’re looking to dress your dog up as your favorite fictional character, or one of your favorite foods, the options are basically endless. If you’re still on the hunt for a costume for your furry friend, then these are the best Halloween costumes you and your pup will love.

Best Cat Costumes:
A good costume for your cat is a lot trickier to find than it is for a dog. Now that’s not for lack of options, it’s just that depending on the disposition of your cat the best costume might be none at all unfortunately. But if your feline friend is willing to wear something, even for just a few pictures, there are plenty of fun options that you can go with. You’re guaranteed to love it even if they’d rather be off taking a nap somewhere.
