20+ Best Pet Halloween Costumes Of 2017

Fall is almost here, so it’s high time to get ready for the spookiest time of the year: Halloween! Get those decorations out, stock up on candy, and start obsessing over what Halloween costume screams your name this year. Most importantly, don’t forget about your furry friend! While you should always do what’s best for your pet, which may mean not dressing them up at all if they do not take well to having clothes put on them, it can be super fun to dress your cat or dog (or hamster) up for Halloween, as well!


We recommend getting a costume early in the season, so that your pet can practice wearing it before attending those Halloween pet parades, or for the big day spooks and spirits itself, October 31st. Don’t expect to put your pet’s costume on the day that they are to wear it and be immediately comfortable in it. Give them plenty of time to get used to the costume!




Find a pet Halloween costume that will have you laughing so hard you’ll start crying, or choose a costume that matches your own Halloween look. Get even more creative by getting your significant other or entire family involved in a group costume idea. Or, do you have multiple pets? Dress them all up with a theme! Whatever your plans are for this Halloween, check out our 20+ best pet Halloween costumes for 2017 below to get your noggin firing with ideas.

Einstein Pet Costume

Is your dog or cat a regular Einstein? Knows how to open doors themselves, always gets their leash when they want to go outside? Dress them up as Einstein himself for Halloween! My dog is always outsmarting me to get what he wants, so I’m thinking this may very well be the perfect costume for him!

Star Wars Chewbacca Pet Costume

Star Wars costumes are always a popular choice for Halloween, no matter how young, old, or furry. With Star Wars: The Force Awakens released in 2015, and Star Wars: The Last Jedi set to be released this coming December 15, 2017, Star Wars is sure to continue as a popular theme this Halloween.



Chewbacca is our personal favorite choice for a pet Halloween Star Wars costume because the popular Wookie is a little reminiscent of a (very, very) huge dog. In fact, Chewy was directly inspired by George Lucas’ Alaskan Malamute, Indiana! And, have you ever seen a Griffon Bruxellois? It’s basically a real-life Chewy.

Star Wars Bantha Pet Costume

There are so many good options for some Star Wars fun for Halloween, so we have to list one more Star Wars favorite for pets: Bantha! In case you don’t recognize the creature from the Star Wars universe, Banthas are large, elephant-sized animals with long furry tails that are native to the planet of Tatoonie. Most importantly, they make for a super cute Halloween costume for your cat or dog!

Dressing your furry friend up as a Star Wars character, whether Chewbacca, Bantha, BB-8, or Yoda, is a great way to pick a matching costume. Dress up as Luke Skywalker, a Storm Trooper, or Darth Vader to get a totally cute pet + human look.

Lion Mane Wig Pet Costume

Teddy Bear Halloween Costume

If you’ve ever seen Munchkin the Shih Tzu in her teddy bear costume, you know just how cute a dog in a Halloween costume can be. The little Shih Tzu took the Internet by storm back in October 2014, when her owner created a Halloween costume for her out of a teddy bear. It literally looked like there was a little bear walking around!



If you’re not the arts and crafts DIY type, no worries – you can now buy your very own teddy bear pet costume so your dog can look just as cute as Munchkin this Halloween.

Bunny Rabbit Ears Pet Costume

Cats and dogs love chasing bunnies. They’re little furry creatures that they just have to get their paws on (to snuggle with them, of course). So, the irony is strong in dressing up your dog or cat is a bunny rabbit for Halloween. Keep it simple and super cute with a bunny ears hat like the one below. Best yet, you get to use them over again in March when Easter arrives!
