I know what you’re thinking…The Best Dog Halloween Costumes? In the middle of February? It’s not even close to Halloween!
This is true, but I’ve been hording several dog costume images over the past couple years that I’ve been itching to get up on this site.
If you’ve been reading my blog then you saw that Stetson was a Bumble Bee for Halloween. I also wore my Bumble Bee outfit on Halloween making us a swarm of bees. While I must admit, Stetson was an adorable bumble bee it pales in comparison to the originality of these costumes.
So here we are with the 6 Best Dog Costumes circulating on the internet. You can click on the pictures for a larger image (some are already at maximum resolution).
Number 6 – Spider Pug
Spider Pug…Spider Pug…Does whatever a Spider Pug can do…Have you seen the The Simpsons Movie yet? For some reason I’m drawn to Spider Pug. I know…it’s not too original…and you might say “I’ve seen better”, but for some reason the right color coupled with perfect length spider legs makes me love this costume.
Number 5 – The Golden Lion
He could be Azlan from The Chronicles of Narnia…or he could be the Cowardly Lion from The Wizard of Oz. If you take a closer look he is part of our guide dogs of america group. You can see one of our guide dog puppy jackets on the left side of the picture. Bonus points for being a guide dog in training. Inspired by this costume we took a shot at building our own lion mane dog costume for Derby.
Number 4 – Mini Knight And His Loyal Steed
This little guy reminds me of King Arthur, Excalibur, and the knights of the round table. I wish I could get my father’s cairn terrier into a similar costume, but unfortunately I don’t think the knight would survive the day.
Number 3 – Fluffy The Three-Headed Dog
If you’ve seen or read the first Harry Potter Book then you know all about Fluffy the Three-Headed Dog. Or maybe you’ve seen the Harry Potter Movies. Anyways, I’m sure the little boy in the picture got plenty of attention with his three-headed dog.
Number 2 – The Dog Legend Of Sleepy Hollow
How can this one be number 2. What a brilliant costume! It should be number 1. The Headless Horseman rides again…brings back memories of the recent Tim Burton movie The Legend of Sleepy Hollow with Johnny Depp as the odd Ichabod Crane and Christopher Walken as the Headless Horseman. The headless horseman dog costume is definitely one of our favorites and I even see they have the costume listed on Amazon.com (affiliate link) for purchase (however, not nearly as cool as the one in hits picture).
Number 1 – Snoopy! Watch Out For The Gator!
I don’t really know if his name is Snoopy, but he is a Beagle. Why did I choose this one as the number 1 dog costume? It’s original, it’s humorous, it’s great!!! and it makes me laugh…An adorable Beagle getting eaten by an alligator. This alligator dog costume would have gone great with Derby’s lion costume. They do have some Alligator Infant/Toddler Costume (affiliate link)
listed on Amazon, but I bet you could use your imagination and somehow make a similar dog alligator costume.
I hope you enjoyed the list. If you have any great dog costume photos please send them to me and I’ll try to post them on my next “Top List“. What do you think? Are these great costumes? Have you seen better?
