Listen, if you’re thinking about decking your Dachshund out in a pair of hot dog buns, it’s time to get a little more creative! Our dogs are pretty magical creatures—let’s take the scariest (and most fun!) holiday of the year to conjure up some Halloween costumes even the cat would be proud of. Oh, and don’t forget some monster toys to match!
Before you go any further, you need to know that this Pegasus disguise doubles as a pair of crinkly TOYS. That’s right. After your dog struts her stuff down
Mount Olympus the street outside your house, she can go all Hades on this costume by tearing it to pieces.
You don’t need to be prehistoric to rock it with the dinos. The elaborate headpiece of this costume features a trio of terrifying horns and an awesome, scale-y fabric to turn the heads of all lesser herbivores. If you feel so inclined, pair it with a similarly-colored dog sweater to complete the look.
You have a dog. Your dog has unfortunately never been ridden valiantly into the sunset. What to do? This rider will look like he’s trying to survive those 8 seconds on the bull while your pup waddles from house to house looking for handouts.
Your Thumper need only wag his tail against the floor to create the ultimate illusion that he is, in fact, a bunny. The squeaky carrot toy is one of the most popular items on BarkShop, and your pup won’t have to choose between playing with this and his ears—they’re full of crinkly material and ready to be tossed and chewed too!
Get ready to scare your family by sending your arachnid-clad dog into their rooms unannounced. The long, wiggling legs and fuzz to send chills down the spine of an unassuming human will definitely get a few good scares (and laughs).
There’s nothing that strikes more raw fear into a dog’s heart than a human with a Vaseline-coated thermometer. Your pup is sure to scare the neighbor dogs with nothing more than a set of scrubs and a look of fierce determination.
No better place than the poop deck, am I right? Any pup is prepared to pillage their way to all the best belly rubs with the captain’s hat and a
squeaker squawker-filled sidekick who’s ready for shredding.
Best friend or worst enemy? Dogs in the brown coat will either get some good scares or lots of licks from their best canine friends. And if your UPS guy rings the doorbell? You’d bet your tail a few barks might be in order.
The only appropriate fetch toy for dogs in this getup is chopsticks—no soy sauce needed. This costume comes with both the body and headpiece to adorn your little rice ball, and TBH makes a pretty great pair’s costume with their favorite human take-out box.
There’s a horn-tailed troublemaker in every dog, we’re just making it a little more obvious. Your prince or princess of barkness can wield their squeaky pitchfork with reckless abandon, and then destroy the costume just to flaunt their dark side. Note: while wearing, no dog may be reprimanded for their dirty deeds.
