Halloween Costumes for Pets

Dressing up for Halloween is a tradition that everyone looks forward to. As the holiday approaches, the question What are you going to be for Halloween? begins to ring in the air at home, at school, and even in the workplace. Everyone enjoys dressing up for Halloween and now you can include a costume for your pet dog or cat.

Dressing up a pet dog or cat has become increasingly popular in the last few years. Often, for security purposes, families will have their pet dog with them while trick-or-treating. So, why not dress him up for Halloween also? Dressing up for Halloween can now be for the whole family!

Collars, hats, and capes can be put on your pet dog or cat in a variety of characters. Some of the more popular costumes include Dracula, the devil, and witch apparel. These come complete with capes and headgear. Also popular are the skeleton costumes, which is a full body suit for your pet.

Your pet dog or cat could dress-up as a super-hero. Superman, Batman, Spiderman, and Wonder Woman are among the most popular. Other fun costumes include Star Wars characters, Raggedy Ann, and Zorro.

For those who only want to dress up their pet a little bit and do not want a full costume, there are a variety of head-dresses from which you can choose. There are trick-or-treat bandanas, Santa hats, and even pig-tails. Your pet could be Uncle Sam, or a Christmas elf with just a hat.

With such a variety, you and your pet could have matching or complimentary costumes. Since it is becoming more popular, some local stores will carry Halloween costumes for pets. You can also find pet Halloween costumes on the internet.

Halloween can be a whole new experience when your family and your family pet dress up for Halloween. I guess you could say Halloween has gone to the dogs.
