Your pet might not love the experience of being dressed up, but the pictures will be adorable. Halloween costumes for dogs are generally varied, but you’ll ultimately have to decide whether you prioritize your pet’s comfort or the theme of your get-up. Recent developments in pet costume technology include outfits that make them look like they have the ability to carry items (like a package if they’re going to be a UPS driver) or like a different animal entirely (which can be done simply by adding a lions mane that goes around their head). Most Halloween costumes for dogs are inexpensive – coming in at less than $20. And there’s nothing wrong with going with an old classic, like a hot dog outfit, as it will feel like a normal sweater to your dog.
