Delivering your cuteness-overload for the day, here are the dog costumes you need before Halloween hits, along with a little bonus info about some of the furry models themselves.
- Ideal for: Your furry friend who isn’t afraid to flex his puppy muscles
Have you ever come across a funnier dog costume than this? We’d be surprised. We love this costume because it gives you a chance to dress your pup just as you see him — as a superhero. You get home from a long day at work, and there he is, ready to save the day with that wagging tail of his. He deserves this costume, and you know it.

Yep, the little guy sporting the superhero cape is one of the happier dog breeds, and this one in particular is all about class. Just take a look at his bio. “Originally from London, Benny is as classy as they come. He enjoys watching cricket on the couch wrapped in his tartan HomeGoods throw, with whiffs of Early Grey in the air.” Class, class, class.

- Ideal for: Your furry friend who knows she rules the roost
There’s no doubt in our minds that your pup deserves only the best. She’s a princess worthy of her perch, so naturally, she’ll need a tutu to match. As if your oh-so-perfect pup needs any help, this adorable princess skirt will instantly transform her into the girly, royal canine she already is.

4. The talent: Gracie, Australian shepherd

It doesn’t get much cuter than this little Gracie girl here.

5. Banana split
- Ideal for: Your furry friend whose dinner is never enough
Everyone likes a little treat after dinner. Unfortunately, our pups are limited to what they can and cannot have, but this costume is basically the next best thing. One look at a pup dressed as a banana split, and your trick-or-treaters are bound to leave with a smile on their faces.
Next: One more for those with a sweet tooth.
- Ideal for: Your furry friend who has a super sweet side
Chocolate and cherries and cupcakes, oh my! This easy-on, easy-off option is perfect for the pup whose sweet side is hard to resist.
Next: BBQ, anyone?
- Ideal for: Your furry friend who’s always begging for table scraps
There’s nothing like a classic BBQ when you’re hoping to soak up the last of the season’s sunshine. So, the next time you grill out to take in the last of those golden leaves, be sure your dog is dressed appropriately. And what’s more appropriate than a dog dressed as a hamburger? Well, there may be one thing, and it’s coming up next.

8. Hot dog
- Ideal for: Your furry friend who loves clowning around
Every hamburger needs his hot dog counterpart, and if you have two pups at home, these two choices are perfection. Better yet, if you happen to have a dachshund, this hot dog costume is just what you’ve been searching for.

9. The talent: Skye, mini dachshund
- Follow Skye: @blue_eyed_dox
What better dog to model a hot dog costume than a wiener dog? And Skye, the mini-dachshund, fits the role to a tee. According to her bio, “Sky is a Southern gal with a Nashville-meets-Navajo style. With her one blue eye-for-design, she brings out a mix of navy and sapphire through patched pillows and mix pattern rugs.” Oh Skye, we sure do salute your fashion sense and interior design skills.
Next: A costume made for the canine with a wild side
- Ideal for: Your furry friend who has a hidden sassy side
Is your dog’s bark bigger than his bite? If so, this costume’s for him. He may put on an alpha persona, but deep down he loves to cuddle, which means he’ll feel right at home in this fuzzy monster getup.
