Dogs deserve the best — they’re extensions of our family, are endlessly entertaining and are so loyal. They also deserve the best when it comes to Halloween costume ideas. There are so many different dog breeds, and each one offers unique costume potential. Think: a Great Dane would make a hysterical Scooby Doo; a Frenchie dressed as French-ie Fries would result in guaranteed LOLs. Get creative this year with your pet Halloween costume! Here are some of our fave Halloween dog costumes.
