12 Funny Halloween Costumes for Dogs

There’s only one thing better than dog memes – dogs in Halloween costumes!

And since Halloween is almost here, what a better way to get into the festivities than by looking at some cute pooches dressed to impress.

While dressing your dog in a costume is always a lot of fun, just make sure that your dog is safe and never forced to wear something that causes anxiety. We suggest looking for any signs of anxiety or discomfort: pacing, panting excessively, pawing or clawing at the costume, or sitting or lying down and refusing to move.

1. Australian Icon 

Let your pup show their true Aussie colours and dress them up as two mates carrying a case of Carona's. They'll be the life of the party.

Who said that dogs in a cone can't enjoy Halloween? Using their cone as part of the costume is a great way to keep it simple. Our favourite is turning them into a martini glass.
