It’s almost time for the best holiday of the year: howl-o-ween! Are you looking for costume ideas for your dog? Well, you’ve come to the right place. We’ve come up with the best Halloween costumes for dogs by breed.
Note: if your dog isn’t on the list, don’t worry. We’re just having fun, and these costumes will work across breed lines! Read on for the best dog Halloween costumes by dog breed.
Labrador Retriever: Wonder Woman (or another superhero)
Labs are the most popular dogs in America, and they frequently work in heroic roles like therapy or search-and-rescue. So, it only makes sense to dress them up as superheroes for Halloween! Wonder Woman was one of the biggest movie hits in 2017, but whichever superhero costume you choose for your dog, they’re sure to make a heroic splash this Halloween.
German Shepherd: Butterfly
German Shepherds are beautiful, loving dogs, but let’s be honest: some people still find them intimidating. This Halloween, show the world how friendly and social your GSD can be. A simple pair of wings can turn your German Shepherd into a beautiful butterfly!
Golden Retriever: Lion
This easy costume highlights your golden’s beautiful coat and brave disposition. Simply brush out that gorgeous golden fur and slip this lion mane around their neck for a simple, comfortable, stunning Halloween costume!
Bulldog: Bull Dog
What can we say, we’re a little literal here at Rover HQ. We just love the joke of a bulldog wearing bull horns!
A lot of people dress their pugs as Yoda or a similarly strange-looking characters for Halloween. But we want to celebrate the beauty of these comical little dogs. Dress your goofy pug as a ballerina costume for dogs and watch them prance!

Your Frenchie is already conveniently football-shaped and sized, so why not put them in the costume? Football player costumes are popular for dogs, but we like the idea of dressing your dog as the ball itself!
From Jack Russells to Westies, terrier breeds are busy little bees! You’ll love watching your dog buzz around in this cute striped costume.
There’s no denying the natural resemblance between Yorkies and Wookies. Highlight it for Halloween with this cute Chewbacca costume for dogs!
Border Collie: Albert Einstein
Celebrate your smartypants Border Collie by dressing them as one of the smartest people to ever exist. This cute Al-bark Einstein costume comes complete with a wacky wig so your BC can match the famous scientist’s coif.
Boxer: Boxer (of course)
We can’t help ourselves: we love dogs dressed as their own breed names! Imagine how cute your boxer’s wiggy butt will look in a pair of silky boxing shorts. You can gather supplies yourself, but all you really need are some boxer gloves that fit on the paws.
