The 13 Best Dog Costumes on Amazon, According to Hyperenthusiastic Reviewers

By

Here at the Strategist, we like to think of ourselves as crazy (in the good way) about the stuff we buy, but as much as we’d like to, we can’t try everything. Which is why we have People’s Choice, in which we find the best-reviewed (that’s four-to-five-star reviews and lots of ‘em) products and single out the most convincing. Since it’s almost Halloween, we’ve chosen the best dog costumes on Amazon, according to the people — and for your convenience, we’ve rounded up all the best things for Halloween here. (Note that reviews have been edited for length and clarity.)

Best Wonder Woman Dog Halloween Costume

4.6 stars, 326 reviews

“I got this costume for Penny, my 40-pound pit bull, to wear while we were trick-or-treating on Halloween. It was so cute! The dress doesn’t have ‘sleeves’ and the fabric ends right at the middle of her belly, so Penny was able to comfortably wear it without feeling like she was overwhelmed. I put it on her a few times before Halloween, and she was playing with her toys, walking around the house, and lounging in her bed like nothing was any different. She also tolerated the headband very well, but I think it’s because the headband is just a flat piece of fabric and elastic — nothing floppy or wobbly to make her feel like something is there that shouldn’t be. Pit bulls are broad-chested dogs, so the top Velcro pieces kept pulling apart, but it really wasn’t a huge deal. Overall, I’d say this outfit is very easy for a dog to wear, and it’s super cute!”

Best Stegosaurus Dog Halloween Costume

4.2 stars, 196 reviews

“This is honestly the cutest Halloween costume for a dog I have ever seen. I can’t stop laughing every time I put it on my Rufus. The head isn’t even a fuss. Once you attach it, it stays put! Since the body of the outfit and the head are separate pieces, you don’t have to worry about how to attach a leash, either!”

Best Pope Dog Halloween Costume

4.6 stars, 192 reviews

“I bought this for my six-pound Pomeranian who is quite a diva. For her first Halloween, she wore a coconut bra and hula skirt from a Build-a-Bear store, because I did not want a typical dog costume. Needless to say, she won first prize that year in the pet Halloween costume contest. I haven’t been able to find just the right costume that would do justice until now. This was perfect for her, her personality makes her pull it off even more. She lets me put on outfits and her facial expressions are priceless, she thinks she is royalty, and this outfit of the Pope was perfect. It was delivered quickly from the seller and in time for Halloween and a Christmas picture.”

Best Pirate Dog Halloween Costume

4 stars, 204 reviews

“This is AMAZING! We have a dachshund (wiener dog) and he fits perfectly in a small. If you need a good laugh and want a great costume for your dog, this is a must-buy. Wife and I laughed hysterically for about 30 minutes. I always wondered if the pictures do it justice, but this is spot-on. Fits nicely over our dog, and he didn’t seem to mind it much as it’s soft and elastic around his feet. I got this at a discount, but I would highly recommend this. Best dog costume we’ve bought.”

Best Robin Dog Halloween Costume

4.1 stars, 183 reviews

“I think it’s safe to say that I probably have way too much time on my hands if I’m searching for and buying things like this on Amazon. This costume is absolutely ridiculous and from the moment I saw it, I knew that I had to have it immediately. My 1-year-old son will be Batman for Halloween, so after seeing this we decided our two Boston terriers would be dressed up as Robin and the Joker. They are going to be the triple threat at Halloween costume contests this year, and the other kids had better watch out … My only slight complaint is that I purchased a large for my 35-pound Boston terrier and it does not fit around his body all that well; the Velcro tabs just barely touch each other, so we are going to have to come up with another solution to keep it closed. Fortunately, the cape covers this, so it’s not a big deal. The sizing is a bit off, so keep that in mind; it might be a better idea to go up a size and make necessary modifications to fit your dog.”

Best Peacock Dog Halloween Costume

4.3 stars, 133 reviews

“I entered a pooch parade, and signed up for their costume contest. First of all, I LOVE peacocks! I bought some long peacock feathers and attached them to the back. My boy Irie was the talk of the town! He got stopped everywhere for photos, and was even awarded a medal from a Fiesta Princess because her theme was peacocks. This was a great-quality costume, and I look forward to purchasing more of the Animal Planet series.”

Best Butterfly Dog Halloween Costume

4.2 stars, 152 reviews

“This is wonderful and incredibly cute. The wings are a good size, big enough to be ridiculous, but not so big that they get in the way. Stay on the arms really well. The bonnet is great, too. Stays on better than most costumes. It does cover the ear completely, so if you have a dog that gets weird about that then be warned, but if your dog doesn’t care, then you’ll love it. It looks absolutely hysterical and is way better quality than you’d expect.”

Best Lion-Mane Dog Halloween Costume

4.5 stars, 383 reviews

“Sent this to my ‘grand-dog’ Daisy Buttons and she looks adorable. Her coloring is caramel, so she matches a lion, furwise! The wig is super easy to put on and is nice and fluffy. Daisy didn’t run away when my daughter put it on her head (Daisy’s) the second time, so we know she was proud of her new look. I would definitely recommend the product and received it very fast and in great condition.”

Best Lobster Dog Halloween Costume

4.1 stars, 121 reviews

“I got the costume for my 14-month-old English chocolate Lab and got it a little big to be on the safe side and it fit perfectly. It was a great hit during trick-or-treat night and at the costume contest at the local pet store. Was very cute and looks exactly how it does in the picture.”

Best Skeleton Dog Halloween Costume

4.2 stars, 220 reviews

“One of the cutest Halloween costumes hands down! Shipping was fast and it was packaged nicely. My boy looked so awesome in his costume and everyone loved it!! He’s an 80-pound pittie and it fit him perfectly! Of course, reading the other reviews was helpful, too. This material is nice and comfy with some stretch, so he was able to act, play, and sleep in this. They can go to the bathroom with no problems with this costume, too. Although he didn’t wear the hat, he was still the cutest-dressed pup!! We even took him trick-or-treating, and everyone who saw him complimented his awesome costume! It did glow, too, I made sure to keep it under the light before we went out. It is so easy to get on and get off and it stayed on him great!! He even took a nap in it like it wasn’t even on. My favorite fur-kid costume!”

Best Tuxedo Dog Halloween Costume

4.8 stars, 304 reviews

“This is AMAZING! Very high-quality, satin-lined, double-knit suit. It is a perfect replica of a human tuxedo, complete with tails. I have a schnoodle that weighs 21 pounds and the large fit him perfectly. It even comes with a handbag to carry it in. It is a snap closure that is hidden by buttons. It stops just below his chest, allowing plenty of room for potty breaks without removing the suit; the tails cover over the back, leaving the hind quarters of Peanut open for No. 2 potty breaks without making a mess. The ties are adjustable with slide-lock enclosures. They secretly hide under the collar of the tux. I highly recommend this product. Mr. Peanut will be wearing it in his mommy’s wedding.”

Best Triceratops Dog Halloween Costume

4.2 stars, 383 reviews

“You have a dog. Your dog’s head is sadly unadorned. What to do? What to do? You put this on your dog. Hilarity and fun for all ensues. The best part? Most dogs are chill with it, yo. You feel me, dawg? (Btw, this small hat fits just as well on a bichon frise as it does on one of those Chihuahua’s that looks like a baby Doberman.)”

Best Santa Claus Dog Halloween Costume

4.2 stars, 152 reviews

“I took my dog out with me in my car while my boyfriend ran errands, and as he looked out the window when we were parked, women were literally screaming with excitement at how cute Muppet looked. Men, too. Photos were taken. My boyfriend even overheard them in the store still talking about the Santa Paws in the parking lot. Big hit, needless to say! He was adorable. It’s hilarious watching them run around. I got an extra large and it was a good fit for my cockapoo.”
