Halloween Costumes for Pets

Halloween is right around the corner, and we want to make sure you (and your pet!) are ready. If you’re looking for the cutest outfit on the block for Fido or Fluffy, here are some great picks from PetSmart, who has a wide selection and is currently offering up to 40% off their entire Halloween collection. Be sure to order soon—unique, seasonal stock has a way of selling out and not coming back until the next year. If there’s something specific that you love, it may not be there on October 29th.

Classic Halloween Picks


We love that while PetSmart has licensed themes, they also have good old-fashioned Halloween-themed costumes, too. Want your dog to look like it just ate a bunch of candy? They’ve got that. Want to turn them into a classic pumpkin? They’ve got that, too. A cute, orange and black dress that says, “Boo”? You know they’ve got that, too. This entire collection is crazy adorable—be sure to check them all out!

Superhero Costume Picks


Your pet is undeniably a superhero in real life—greeting you when you get home with all the excitement in the world, cuddling with you when you’re sad—there’s no one else that has quite the same unconditional love as a pet. To celebrate that super power, check out these hero-themed costumes ranging from Batman to Superman to Wonder Woman. These outfits are modeled on dogs, but depending on the size of your cat may be able to fit them, too.

Star Wars Picks


Um, who wouldn’t want to dress their dog up as BB-8? Or Princess Leia? Or Chewy? Even Darth Vader? As if your pet weren’t adorable enough, now they can help you celebrate your inner geek in such a fun way. Want to do this one up a little bit more? Make it a family affair, with children dressing up as their favorite characters, and adults, too. There’s only one question left to ask: will your family join the light side, the dark side or choose to bring balance to the Force?

It’s Not All for the Cats and Dogs


We certainly never would have thought of it, but PetSmart did: Halloween costumes for guinea pigs! Adorable bees, bewitching witches and the classic pumpkin are some of the options in this line. We’re hearting on it so much we’re thinking about going out and buying a guinea pig just for the occasion. Maybe not the most frugal thing ever. But maybe completely worth it.

For the Fish


While you would most definitely have a hard time dressing your fish up for Halloween, you will have an easy time of decorating their tank. You can keep things a little less creepy and more celebratory with a Day of the Dead skull. Or, you can get super spooky with a haunted house. For the child-inclined tank, there’s a jack-o-lantern, and a cute trick-or-treating monster. While your fish may not care one way or the other, your friends will certainly be impressed by what a thorough decorator you are. Go you.
