With 13% of dog- or cat-owning households purchasing apparel or fashion accessories for their pets, a variety of retailers have taken steps to cash in on the trend. These days, you can find dog and cat Halloween costumes at a wide range of retailers including PetSmart, Petco, Target, Walmart, Party City, and Amazon, to name a few.
However, some pet owners prefer a more DIY approach and design their own unique costumes. Photos of pets dressed as Doctor Who, a dragon, giant squid, giraffe, stegosaurus, and a scuba diver can be found on Mashable’s slideshow of 25 Crazy Pet Costumes That Put Yours to Shame.
Dogs and cats aren’t the only pets wearing costumes this Halloween. Guinea pigs and rabbits are also getting in on the action.
Plus, many towns and cities host annual Halloween puppy parades and costume contests — a fun chance to show off your furry friend and be inspired by other people’s pets.
