10 Funny, Cute and Spooky Small Dog Halloween Costumes

The spooky season is upon us! While donning your own get-up is great, it’s even better to include your pet in all the Halloween fun. Finding the ideal small dog costume means considering your pet’s preferences, says Kacie Hu, associate global sourcing manager and trend expert at Chewy.

“If your dog enjoys wearing apparel and likes to show off, go big with a full body and headpiece costume,” she says.

Doggo’s not a ham? Then Hu advises going with a simple, lightweight small dog costume, like a dog sweater or shirt, and avoiding the extras.

From funny to scary, we’ve rounded up some of the best small dog Halloween costumes.

Superman

It’s a bird! It’s a plane! It’s your Yorkie cracking up your neighbors when they picture him leaping tall buildings in a single bound. This one definitely earns a place among funny small dog costumes. It boasts wearability, too: The cape, chest piece and belt all have fabric ties, so they’re easy to secure without being too loose or too tight.
