I could think of about a million reasons to get a dog, but when it’s time for Halloween, I can always add a few more to the list. From trick-or-treating with your furry friend, to making them some fall-themed goodies (yes, fall-themed dog treats really exist), it’s seriously a great time of year to have a four-legged friend.
But the best part? Costumes! Obviously.
While your pooch might not think so, dressing them up for the holiday is pretty much the cutest thing to ever happen. Ever. And what if your costume matches your dog? Well, then, you’ve totally won Halloween.
Here’s a roundup of the best owner-dog costumes we found on the internet. They’re in no particular order of awesomeness because how could one possibly choose a favorite? Enjoy!
1. Daenerys And Her Dragon
If you’re a fan of “Game of Thrones” and just so happen to also have a dog, welcome to the best costume ever. You can copy this Daenerys and dragon costume by heading to a thrift store for some used/distressed clothing for yourself, then either buy or make some dragon wings for your furry friend.
2. Wayne And Garth From “Wayne’s World”
So easy and yet so impressive! If you can get your dog to keep glasses and a wig on for longer than three seconds, you’ve not only won Halloween, but you’ve pretty much also won pet ownership.
3. Hotdog And Vendor
Hotdogs are probably a favorite of most dogs, and if they’re yours too, this costume is perfect. You can find instructions here, but it all looks pretty simple to make.
If your kid is going as the vendor and your pup is the hotdog, it sounds like the perfect time for those adult-size ketchup and mustard costumes! And you can find the hotdog costume for your dog on Amazon.
4. Circus Act
Dogs are known for some pretty impressive tricks, so why not make them the star of the show?! Simply put a lion’s mane on them, get a ring leader costume for you or your kids, and you’re done!
5. Spaghetti And Meatballs
Not only is this hilarious, it’s practical if you’re heading to a parade or party with lots of people and other dogs. This way, you can carry your pooch around but it’ll just look like part of the costume! It’s also super easy; the spaghetti is just a bunch of noodle-colored yarn.
6. Han Solo And Chewbacca
“Star Wars” fans: This one’s for you! Chewbacca can be cute in his own right, but this doggie Chewbacca is by far the cutest one we’ve ever seen.
7. E.T. And Elliot (And The Moon!)
You could skip the moon part if you want and this costume would still be epic. So easy, too! Just need a red-hooded sweatshirt and a bike with a basket—as long as your dog will stay in said basket!
8. Bowser And Chomp
Video game-lovers and anyone who grew up in the ’80s and ’90s are sure to love this one! So nostalgic and awesome!
9. Harry Potter And Fluffy, The Three-Headed Dog
Harry Potter fans can’t go wrong with this one! The Harry Potter costume can be purchased and if you’re handy with a sewing machine, you can make the dog costume with some stuffed animals to match the color of your pup.
10. Batman And Robin
Dogs make the perfect sidekick, just like Robin! This costume’s fairly easy to put together, too, as both costumes can be purchased without having to make them yourself. And it works for kids and adults!
11. Sushi And Soy Sauce
Your dog probably won’t even mind this one, as all it takes is a little fabric to make the perfect soy sauce costume. The human costume is easy too—it looks like the salmon portion is just a pillow!
