Everyone’s favorite part about Halloween is dressing up. As kids, we looked forward to the one day in the whole year we got to transform ourselves into anyone or anything that we wanted to be. The costume possibilities are endless. You can be a superhero you look up to. You can be a character from your favorite book or film. You can be an animal, cartoon, a bottle of sriracha, a rock, literally anything. But why must we limit Halloween costumes to human beings? Why not get our dogs into the Halloween spirit too? The best part: you get to choose what your dog will dress up as. And just like how it is for humans, the costume possibilities for our furry friends are also endless.Add styrofoam to a green t-shirt to make a dinosaur costume. The bigger the dog, the more believable the costume!
Your dog is already half way there! He’s got the pet side down, now he just needs to add the ch-ch-ch-chia leaves!
Your dog might have trouble walking in this, but the watching him wobble left to right in it will be worth it.
Even though you can’t live out your wizarding dreams, doesn’t mean your dog can’t! You’re a wizard, Harry.

Who said your lion costume had to be fancy and made out of expensive material? Cut up strips of brown and tan felt to transform your dog into the king of the jungle.

If you catch your dogs day dreaming while looking at the sky at often times, perhaps he dreams of being a pilot. Make his dreams come true with this costume and you can even add in a first aid kit as another costume!
