Best Cute Dog Halloween Costumes
Halloween – It’s the one day of the year when we can transform ourselves into whomever we want. And while we’re at it, why not get our dogs in on all the fun? There are so many cute dog Halloween costumes out there, so it was tough to narrow it down to just 12. But we hope you like our picks… perhaps they will give you some ideas on what your dog will be for Halloween this year!
Who’s the most popular mouse on the planet? Mickey, of course! Take the opportunity this Halloween to take a trip down memory lane with this classic and well-loved character from your childhood. Even today’s children will recognize the iconic mouse as he continues to grace television screens today.
The costume is easy to put on, featuring a step-in hoodie with attached arms. You will love the details with Mickey’s signature red shorts and white gloves. Made from 100% polyester, this Mickey & Friends Pet Costume is soft, comfortable, and machine-washable (because we all know that dogs aren’t necessarily good at staying clean).
Sizes range from small to XXX-Large, meaning that there is an option for most dogs. But be careful! You may have all the neighborhood kids on the street asking Mickey Mouse for his autograph!
UPS Delivery Driver
While some pooches will bark their heads off at the very sight of the mailman, most hold a special place in their heart for UPS drivers. And it probably doesn’t have anything to do with those treats the delivery guys and gals sneak to your pooch, of course. There are even social media accounts fully dedicated to sharing the furry friends that the UPS delivery drivers meet on their daily runs (and we love seeing all those happy wagging tails and smiling faces).
So, as an homage to their favorite delivery person, this Halloween your pet can wear a dog-sized replica of the UPS uniform, complete with a package that needs to be delivered. The shirt and the cap are a fit for small breed dogs. To transform your pet into a canine courier, order this California Costumes UPS Delivery Dog Costume ASAP!
But be careful – if your dog ends up partnering up with the UPS Delivery team in your area, you may discover a bunch of surprise deliveries coming your way. Who ordered that box of dog treats anyway?

Things to Consider When Choosing a Dog Costume
While we love all of the costumes on this list, there are a few factors you may want to consider when choosing the best outfit for your dog. First and foremost, take a moment to factor in your dog’s comfort level. Do you have a pup that is happy to rock any clothing confidently – that’s great, but it’s not always the case. If your dog is unsure about wearing something on his head, for example, he would be happiest in a costume like Superman that doesn’t include a headpiece.
Another factor to think about is your plans for the spooky season. Are you dressing your dog up to attend a family Halloween gathering or just to take photos? Will your dog be wearing the costume for an extended time? Does he need to be able to move in the costume? All these questions are important. After all, you want to be sure that your pup is going to be comfortable showing off his new costume.
Finally, don’t forget your dog’s unique personality. Some dogs are high-energy, ready to take off with the “zoomies” at a moment’s notice. Other dogs are chewers, quick to eat anything they can put in their mouths including pieces of their Halloween costume, if possible. Pay attention to those little details – especially if your dog is going to be wearing this evening for more than just a few Instagram-worthy pictures.
