Fido's Cutest Halloween Outfits

October 15, 2020

Halloween is just around the corner. One adorable trend that we’ve seen on the rise in recent years is people getting their dogs in on the fun of dressing up in costumes. Fido is already adorable in his birthday suit, but he’s extra cute in costume! A San Antonio, TX vet lists some of Man’s Best Friend’s most hilarious choices below. 


Lion 

Part of choosing a good dog costume means working with Fido’s natural coloring. This one is great for pups with light brown or gold fur. Lion costumes typically only require a ‘mane’ mask, so they are also quite comfortable for Fido. Just keep your canine buddy leashed or indoors: you don’t want anyone accidentally mistaking him for a real lion! 


Avocado

Avocados are actually toxic to dogs, so you should definitely avoid feeding Fido any. However, there’s no reason you can’t dress him up as one!


Pirate

Does Fido like digging holes in your yard? A pirate costume could be perfect for him! (Tip: give your pooch a sandbox to bury treasure in.)


Skunk

If you have a black dog, consider using a white substance to ‘paint’ skunk stripes or skeleton bones on his fur. This is both striking and quite comfortable for your furry bff. Just make absolutely sure the substance you use is nontoxic to Fido. If you can’t tell, don’t risk it. Better safe than sorry! 


Cerberus

According to Greek myths, Cerberus was a three-headed dog that guarded the gates of the underworld. Several people have dressed their pups up as this fearsome pooch. The results, as predicted, have been completely adorable.


Hot Dog

Hot dogs aren’t the best thing for dogs to eat, but they’re okay in small amounts. Fido definitely deserves one after wearing this getup!


Tips

Always put your dog’s safety first. If you dress your canine pal up, make sure that his outfit fits well, and is not tight, itchy, or constricting. Anything flammable should also be avoided, along with items that have small parts, like buttons, which could choke your furry friend. Generally, lightweight, breathable options are going to be your best bet. We recommend going through pet stores or pet clothing retailers, as these outfits are typically made with Fido’s comfort and safety in mind.
