11 Ingenious Dog & Owner Halloween Costume Ideas

11 Ingenious Dog & Owner Halloween Costume Ideas

Updated on October 19th, 2019

Do you love to match your costume with your dog at Halloween? Here are ten clever dog & owner Halloween costume ideas to make your family stand out this Holiday season.

I love seeing family photos on Instagram and Facebook of couple dressed up for Halloween and their dog matching them too.

Of course, not every dog enjoys wearing costumes, so if your dog doesn’t then don’t force them too.

However, if your dog starts wagging his tail at the sight of his latest outfit then dressing him up for Halloween is something to consider!

Don’t forget, your dog’s happiness is what’s important, especially when there are lots of things he might be scared of this Halloween.

Here are ten ingenious family costume ideas for you and your dog.

Trick or treat dog at Halloween

Dog and owner Halloween costume ideas

You could be ultra-creative this year and make your own doggie Halloween costume on one of these themes, but in case (like me!) you aren’t that handy with a needle and thread, there are Amazon links below each costume to go ahead and buy them.

Lion and lion tamer

Did someone say ‘RAWRRRRRR’?

Put the chills into your neighbors by dressing your dog up as a lion with a big furry main.

This works especially well if you have a large pale-coloured dog such as a labrador, retriever or bullmastiff as they really given off the ‘lion’ vibe once you add the main!

These costumes would also be fabulous for a Greatest Showmen themed Halloween party.

Dinosaurs

Everybody loves dinosaurs, right?

This little dinosaur onesie for dogs is super-adorable.

If your dog is okay with wearing a dog coat in the winter, they should be alright with this costume as it’s fairly similar.

However, the adult dinosaur costumes may be a bit scary for your dog, especially as they need to inflate which might be noisy.

If you get these costumes, it might be a good idea to get your dog used to them before Halloween. Slowly introduce him to the costumes, and the inflator, until he is comfortable being around them and the noise.

Cowboys & cowgirls

Yeeeee-haaaaaaaaaa!!

Take your pooch to the Wild West this Halloween with this fabulous cowboy costume.

This is a good costume for dogs because it’s really just a dog coat with a little cowboy on top, so most dogs should be happy to wear this if they are used to wearing dog coats.

For your family costumes, if you don’t want to go for the full costume then you could just purchase a couple of cowboy hats and wear them with some jeans and checked shirts.
