Dragons are one of the most iconic fantasy creatures of literature, film, and TV. There’s Drogon, Rhaegal, and Viserion from Game of Thrones, Toothless from How To Train Your Dragon, Smaug from The Hobbit…the list goes on. Because dragons are so iconic, they’ve become some of the most popular Halloween costumes on the market. Thankfully, dragon dog costumes tend to be more “cute and cuddly” than “terrifying and fire-breathing”—so if you want to dress your dog up like a dragon this Halloween, be prepared for a serious dose of holiday-inspired adorableness.
When shopping for a Halloween costume for your dog, the most important consideration is size. Because dog costumes are not all manufactured in the same way, your pet could be a medium in one costume and an extra-large in another. We recommend measuring your dog and using your pet’s measurements and the product size chart as guides to ensure their best fit.
