5 Matching Pet and Owner Halloween Costume Ideas

If you have a pet (mostly for cats and dogs) then Halloween can be extra fun for everyone! There are many different ways you can incorporate a pet into a Halloween party or event. Last year my friend brought their dog to my party with a faux sheep skin over it and it was “a wolf in sheep’s clothing”. Fun and inventive! What’s even better is having a matching pet and owner costume! Here are 5 great ideas for you to consider.

Ash Ketchum and Pikachu

Join in on all the Pokemon Go fun by dressing up man’s best friend in this adorable Pikachu costume. Sizes include extra small through extra-large. Because this costume runs small, you may want to order a larger size. Snap it on and you are ready for an adventure!

Ash is always ready to do battle, and you will be too in this cool Halloween Ash costume. Sizes offered are small through extra-large and include shirt, pants, hat and wrist band. 

Scooby Doo and Shaggy

This Scooby Doo pet costume comes in a range of sizes for small to extra-large pets. Costume comes with a step-in shirt, cape and headpiece. What a perfect idea to parade your own pet as this iconic companion! Your pet can go as Scooby or even as the mystery bus!
 
You can go Halloween partying, just you and your pooch or as a group with the whole Scooby Doo gang–Fred, Daphne, Velma, or Shaggy!
 
Alice in Wonderland and the Cheshire Cat

Who says dogs can’t be cats? This Cheshire Cat pet costume comes in extra small to extra-large and is lightweight. It has adjustable Velcro closures around the neck and tummy to provide comfort and staying-power for the whole night.
 
Don’t be late this Halloween! This Alice in Wonderland costume comes with a hair ribbon and a blue dress with attached apron. It comes in a range of size from small through extra-large.

Yoda and Luke Skywalker

This one has to be my overall favorite pet and owner costume! Imagine your very own pet as the master of wisdom! This pet costume is machine washable. And comes in sizes from small to extra-large so every dog can have their day. Costume consists of a shirt with attached plush arms and hat with large foam ears.
 
And to receive Yoda’s guidance and wisdom, a great Luke Skywalker costume. Costume contains tunic, pants with attached boot tops and belt. Or you could pick from several Star Wars characters to accompany your pet’s costume. Going as a family or a group? Include the whole Star Wars gang—Princess Leia, Han Solo, Jedi knights, Stormtroopers and the dreaded Darth Vader.

Hot Dog and Condiment Bottle
 
Let your dog dress up as a dog…in a bun! This costume comes in a variety of sizes from extra small to XXXL. It’s a one-piece bodysuit that attaches easily with an adjustable Velcro strap. Why recreate the wheel? When you own a dog, the concept is easy, just tweak it a bit –to bun length!
 
Can we get some mustard on that? Be the perfect complimentary condiment to your dog for all your Halloween festivities with this one size fits most mustard bottle costume.

 
 

Awesome 2013 Dog And Cat Halloween Costumes

 

On Halloween, it’s not just men, women and children dressing up as their favorite characters – it’s pets, too! Now some pets hate wearing costumes. They’ll sit there after you put it on them pouting in a corner of the room until it’s removed.

Others love the attention and go about their business happily playing, no matter what they look like! The most important thing is that the costume you choose is safe and comfortable for your pet.

Whether you’re getting a costume for a dog, cat, or even a bird, it needs to meet both of those requirements before you make your animal friend put it on for awhile.

There are some amazing dog costumes – probably because man’s best friend is more amenable to wearing one than a cat or a bird is. Check out the various Animal Planet dinosaur costumes that turn Fido into T-Rex or a Triceratops for the day.

You can also find superhero costumes for your dog, sharks, and a really cute one where it looks like a miniature cowboy is riding on the back of your four-legged friend.

Cats are harder to buy for, but not impossible. Some pet owners put one accessory on their cat which is a great simple costume This could be a crown hat to show who really rules the roost. Others get full body costumes, like the one that turns your cat into a dog – but be forewarned that may not go over well with your cat.

You might see costumes sold online for birds, too. Just be careful because this can be frightening for some birds and they might break a wing or become frantic trying to remove the costume. Better to give them some fun “setting” accessories and PhotoShop an outfit onto them if you wish!

Halloween costumes this year are already starting to sell. There’s no such thing as “too soon” to buy what you need – because you may wake up one day ready to buy and be told, “Sorry, we’re out!”

Sport Dog Costumes

football player dog costumeThere is a huge selection of sports dog costumes and with all the great ideas out there, it can be a hard choice deciding which one you want to get because so many of them are just awesome! If you have a sports team that you just love and root for, then you can usually find a licensed product from that team for your dog’s Halloween costume.

For example, you can easily get licensed NFL costumes of your favorite team with the jersey numbers on the back of the costume. These costumes will have the same team colors that the players wear. You can also get cheerleading costumes for your dog that are mini replicas of the cheerleading uniforms that are worn by your favorite team’s cheerleaders.

If you like football but don’t want to dish out the extra money for an official team costume for your dog then you can get a generic but awesome football costume for your dog.  I like this one the best from the football costumes for pets that I found online!

I think the cheerleader costumes are pretty incredible too.  Even if you have a male dog, the cheerleading costumes for Halloween still look really funny and your friends will appreciate the look!

But if you don’t want to go with any of the licensed products, you still have plenty of other options. You can get football player costumes for your dog that have the jersey shirt with the number on the back and also have uniform pants. These come in different colors and many different sizes too!. A football helmet that ties on and has holes for the dog’s ears is also included.

Basketball uniforms as costumes is also another option. These costumes are varied and can include the stuffed arms holding a ball so that it appears your dog is on his legs actually holding the ball. The costume is a shirt and pants with the dog’s legs fitting through the legs of the pants. But you can also get the costumes that are basketball jerseys and come with matching booties for your pet.

Whether you go with football or basketball, there are also cheerleading costumes that can go along with either of the sports dog costumes. These are all different styles and colors and are easy Velcro closures either under the neck or the stomach. Some of the more unique cheerleading costumes are the ones that have multi-colored pom-pom booties.

basketball costume for dogsBesides football and basketball costumes, there’s another ball costume that looks great on dogs and that’s the baseball costume. With the jersey vest and matching hat, your pet will look like he’s ready to step up to the plate and hit a home run.

There aren’t many options for baseball dog Halloween costumes unfortunately.  The best one that is on Amazon really is a fun costume for even a big or small dog though!  If you don’t want a baseball costume, there are plenty of other sports costumes for dogs to choose from.

Some pet owners prefer to dress their dogs up in costumes that show their love of a certain sport without using a jersey jumpsuit costume. For those owners, there are sports costumes that are football costumes that are simply a football or a basketball or a soccer ball.  In my opinion these look best on smaller dogs!
