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…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

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

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

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

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 (affiliate link) for purchase (however, not nearly as cool as the one in hits picture).

Number 1 – Snoopy! Watch Out For The Gator!

Dog Eaten By A 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?

  1. lol @hairstyle (:
    oawhhhh ccute dogs. dressing them up is fine as long as its not too uncomfortable for a long time. like, they all look pretty light, apart from the knight one, lol, but i doubt they kept that on for long. the headless horseman was awesome! a bridal and reins for a dog 🙂

  2. You know I was going to write an article similar to this one, but I don’t think I could come up with five better costumes then the ones shown here. In terms of creativity these definitely take the cake. My favorite is the dog night-of-the round-table number, that’s just ridiculous-ly funny.
    Anyway, if your looking to gather info on dog costumes, or trying to come up with somedog costume ideas take a look at my website. Thanks

    1. Seriously? You can’t tell just by the photo that the alligator is fake?

      I don’t understand the haters toward these costumes. There are, as in all things, idiots who don’t take into consideration the things that can hurt their dogs. Don’t take on the whole of dog owners who like to include their dogs in their holiday traditions by looking at the idiots.

      Some of these costumes were adorable. Some were odd. ::shrug:: I dressed as a dead soldier in honor of my dad one Halloween. My siblings and parents also dressed up along the same theme. The pets did too. There’s nothing wrong with supervised pet fun.

      Go play with your dog and lighten up a bit.

  3. @stepher, I’m a big fan of the alligator costume as well. Unfortunately, I don’t know who designed the alligator costume. If I hear anything about the designer I’ll be sure to let you know.

    By the way, if you do design an original costume I’d love to see pictures and possibly post the pictures to my blog.

    Have a Great Halloween!

  4. The alligator costume is THE BEST COSTUME EVER!!! What an incredible post. Can you tell me where you found the alligator costume? I’ve been looking for an original/fresh costume idea for weeks now and THAT is by far the cooooooolest!

    And for the haters GET A LIFE. Halloween is about fun and some of us like to include our pets in that fun!

    Thanks for a fabu blog!


  5. @April, a Great Dane would look great in that costume. Unfortunately, I do not know the person who designed the headless horseman costume.

    My guess is that it was probably hand crafted as I’ve not seen any costumes like it at the costume store online or offline.

    If I hear any information on who created the costume I’ll be sure and let you know.

  6. I love the headless horseman costume. We have a Great Dane and would love that costume. Did someone make that or was it bought? Please let me know where you bought or we are willing to pay someone to make it for us (I’m not a very crafty person). I appreciate any help!

    April, Chad, and Gunny

  7. I really fail to see anything in these costumes apart from the subtle “My owner is an idiot!!!” scream.
