11 Dogs in Costumes Who Prove They’re the True Treats of Halloween Parades

View gallery

Every year, millions of Americans flock to Halloween stores in search of the perfect Halloween costume. But if dressing up for Halloween isn’t your thing, there’s still a reason to enjoy the holiday: the annual Halloween dog parades.

Just like us, our furry friends strut their stuff in adorable dog Halloween costumes, and frankly, they put ours to shame. If you are one of those people who really gets into the Halloween spirit, you’ll know the painstaking effort that goes into finding (or making) the perfect Halloween costume. Now, imagine you’re doing that in miniature for a squirmy body with four legs. Not so easy, right?

And just because our pups can’t pick out a costume themselves doesn’t mean you should put them in any old thing — you have to find something that matches their personality. If Max is feisty, you can’t dress him up as a teddy bear; he’s got to be a dinosaur or a lion. And sweet princess Bella would look better as a cupcake than as a shark. We applaud all the dog moms and dads who go above and beyond with their pets’ Halloween costumes. Keep scrolling to see some pups in costumes that are “pawsitively” adorable.
