Hi Everyone!

Dug the Dog here, and I am so excited to share my first official blog post with you. It’s time for pumpkins, trick-or-treat, and best of all, Halloween costumes! I’m so excited to pick out my costume this year, and I’ve been doing a lot of web-schnauzing in my free time. So I decided to compile a list of my 5 favorite boy and girl dog costumes to help you find the perfect look for your best friend this Halloween. Enjoy!

Top 5 Boy Costumes

1.Chucky Doll

Looks like this is a favorite for all of the scary movie fans!

2. Lion

Lions and tigers, and bears – Oh My!  This one will be sure to get some double takes when trick-or-treating!

3. Cowboy Rider

My friend Coco the Cockatoo gets a kick out of this costume. He thinks I should go with this one so he can dress like the cowboy. Haha Coco, very funny!

4. Spider

Everybody has to love a spider right?

5. UPS/Postman

Finally, one delivery-person we won’t bark at! I could not decide which one was cuter, so I added both ????


Now it’s the girls’ turn and boy, there are some very spiffy costumes that are going to make it a tough decision. Without further ado, here are my favorite girl dog Halloween costumes this year:

Top 5 Girl Costumes

1. Pretty as a Peacock

Let her strut her stuff! Your pooch will be the prettiest one around in this costume!

2. Supergirl

It’s a bird! It’s a plane! It’s…super-cute! All we can say to this is puppy power!!

3. Beautiful Bride

My friend Kit the Cat chose this one as her favorite. She says she would love to wear a wedding dress because she is still too young to really get married. What better time than Halloween to dress the part!!

4. 50’s Hop

Put the poodle in Poodle Skirt! Get ready to put on your dancing shoes with this costume. Put a dollar in the jukebox and let’s get the Halloween party started.

5. Octopus

How cute is this octopus costume!?

Which ones were your favorites? We can’t wait to hit the Halloween parties and go trick or treating. I have some amazing costumes to choose between, but before I go, I want to remind you of tips and tricks to selecting the purrfect costume:

  • Remember to always read reviews on products and make sure to also read the manufacturing labels.
  • Some costumes may contain small pieces or parts that can fall off. Our humans know it is just a piece of the costume, but to us we might think it’s a toy and chew it or even worse swallow it.
  • Make sure to follow all sizing charts. Some costumes differ in sizing and most of the time the costume you want to purchase will have a guide to measure us for a purrfect fit.
  • Try to also keep in mind the weather on Halloween. If you live in a hotter, more humid climate, you may want to go with a costume that is made with a lighter material so you don’t get too hot. Same for the colder climates. You don’t want to get too cold so make sure you pick a warmer costume that will keep you nice and cozy.
  • Finally, and most importantly, have a fun and safe Halloween.

We would love to see your Halloween costumes! Send us pictures! Happy Halloween from all of us here at Your Visiting Veterinarian.
