If your dog likes to pal around with Kingly types, then they may want to dress up as a Knight.

DIY types could create a masterpiece with their sewing machines for sure. I’ve even seen them knitted. If you aren’t crafty, take the easy street and buy a costume online.

2. Hipster Musician

Of course, your dog’s first album was probably better.

Horror fans! It doesn’t get scarier than dressing your dog like Georgie from It.

If you live in a wet climate, you may already have a yellow raincoat for your pup. Then all you need is a balloon and a creepy sewer!

Count Pugula is adorable. A black cape with the right collar is all you really need.

Luckily, your Pug probably just wants some yummy treats instead of your blood!

How cute is this handsome pooch?

If you’re handy with a sewing machine, you could hit a thrift store and alter a toddler suit. If you are busy with work, you could also just buy a costume.

This costume is terrifying. You don’t even need the claw. Any time I see a red and khaki green striped sweater I instantly think Freddy Krueger.

You can probably find a small sweater in a thrift store to alter. The hat is optional depending on your pooch.

A Few Things To Keep In Mind With Pug Costumes

Just remember that dogs do not dress up in the wild. They don’t celebrate holidays. A lot of dogs seem perfectly content dressing up and partying with their humans. Some appear utterly miserable.

Please don’t force your Pug to do anything they don’t want to do! If your pup doesn’t like wearing costumes, don’t force it. A simple bow-tie will make any Pug adorable with little to no discomfort.

Costumes should never limit mobility or vision. Be careful to avoid anything that wraps around the neck.

Avoid any costume that:

  • covers the face or impairs vision
  • could make your dog too hot
  • makes it difficult for your dog to walk or limits mobility
  • makes your pooch appear unhappy

Be safe and have a Happy Halloween!
