Matching costumes can be a controversial topic when it comes to human couples, but matching dog and owner Halloween costumes? There’s no cuter way to show off your bond (just take a cue from Rover‘s master of matching human/dog costumes).
Before you dress up for the holiday, take your dog’s tolerance for clothes and costumes into consideration. Perhaps your pup would prefer a simple Halloween collar or bandana—no big deal, you can make that work.
Or maybe he or she would prefer to be left alone in quiet solitude for the day; that’s OK, too. After all, with all the unpredictability of the day—including strange costumes, unfamiliar visitors, and the constant ringing of the doorbell—Halloween can be stressful for dogs.
But if your dog—or cat—is comfortable in clothing, you’re going to want to try one of these matching dog and owner costumes. From timeless classics to current pop culture trends, we’ve rounded up a few of our favorite ideas.
