As the spooky season creeps around the corner, one question haunts most people’s minds: What will I be doing for Halloween? Once you’ve decided on your costume, make sure you don’t forget your favorite furry companion.
From pumpkins to minions, your pet can be just about anything you want them to be.

Whether your dog is as picky as me or more adaptable like my cousin’s cat, here is a list of the best Halloween costumes for all kinds of pets.
First, let’s take a look at classic Halloween costumes for your pet.

If you’re a fan of “puppy” culture (sorry, you had to), then these costumes are for you.

This is my favorite outfit. This Light-Up Zero Dog Costume repeats Jack Skellington’s dog in The Nightmare Before Christmas. This costume includes a lightweight ghost head with a hood that has a bright orange nose.

These colorful candy dog pajamas make the perfect breathable outfit for your pet. The pajamas feature a cute candy design along the outside with a center patch that says “Eye Candy”. Candy pajamas are sure to make your dog the eye candy for all the other Halloween animals.

When in doubt, a festive Halloween shirt will solve all of your costume dilemmas. There are many choices for Halloween shirts, you can make your pet come back to you Favorite Halloween movie Or just go with a basic Halloween pumpkin or ghost design.
If all other costumes fail, a Halloween neckerchief to put around your pet’s neck is always a good choice for reference. My personal favorite is the ‘Boo’ bandana which still lends a spooky touch to an essential accessory.
