The best pet Halloween costumes for spooky cuteness

Because our furry friends deserve to be included in Halloween too...

Best pet halloween costumes - Take a Break Pets

by Caitlin Casey |

With Halloween right around the corner and pet owners getting ready to eat, drink and be scary, there's no reason our little furry friends can't get involved in all the action too, is there? It's not all just dog leads and hamster cages, you know.

Whether you're having a funky Halloween party or just want to show off to your neighbours that you're the spookiest, you can grab Halloween costumes for your pets, too. From bat wings to witches and even dressing your pet up in a Beetlejuice outfit - trust us, it's worth it - they'll be saying 'happy howl-oween' to everyone they meet.

We've gone all out and found costumes for larger pets - i.e. cats and dogs - or even those smaller friends like guinea pigs, rabbits and rats. Just double-check you've got the sizes right and they'll be looking the part!

What should I dress my pet as for Halloween?

There are all sorts of costumes you can dress your pet up for Halloween. Just like us humans, you can go for the traditional spooky options like witches, spiders, pirates, bats and so on.

It really depends on what's in your budget and whether you're thinking more about the comfort of your pet.

You can, of course, get everything from bandanas, coats, outfits, hats and more, but remember, the more you add, the more uncomfortable it may be for your pet. If you know they're a good sport then you can go all out, but other pets may pull and fuss. It may be best to stick to smaller pieces like collars, harnesses or one-part costumes if you know they'll get irritated.
