This year, Target is offering up a rainbow costume for pets as part of its Hyde & EEK! Boutique. This costume is perfect for pups who don’t feel comfortable with anything on their heads or on their feet. It’s also very fitting, as dogs and rainbows are both capable of brightening your day.

If you’re looking for a topical costume, this may be the one. While this costume comes with a wig, you can always leave it out if your dog isn’t fond of it. Even without the hair, people will have no problem identifying your pup’s costume of choice.

Dog Piano Mover
Granted, this may be one of the strangest dog costumes out there this year. But it’s still hilarious, and it’s light enough for your dog to be comfortable. Doesn’t every dog wish they had a built-in buddy? Prices vary by size.

A few years back, Demi Lovato — a fan of the reality show —dressed her dog Buddy as The Bachelor. All it took? A tuxedo and — if you want to stage a photo shoot — some flower petals. You can create the same look for your pup. Bonus: Dogs can wear it again if they get invited to any fall or winter weddings.
Shop Now: Dog Tux (Amazon, $12.99)
Ghost Dog Sweater
Yes, a sweater counts as a costume — especially if your dog doesn’t wear them all that often. This is a good look for dogs who won’t tolerate much at all. It shows they’re still being festive, but in a way that’s more comfortable for them.

There’s a good chance that your pup doesn’t wear pajamas to bed. That’s why a pair of dog-friendly PJs make the perfect costume. Since Halloween is in October, this comfy costume will give dogs a little extra warmth if they go trick-or-treating around the neighborhood.
Shop Now: JoJo Siwa Pajama Jumpsuit (Target, $16.99)
If your dog is also a great watchdog, you might as well give her the official title of “security guard” this Halloween. This costume is more or less just a shirt. So if your dog is OK with the occasional sweater, this should be one of the best costume successes yet.
Shop Now: Security Guard Shirt (Amazon, $9.99+)
Who doesn’t love tacos? This costume doesn’t include a hood, which is often troublesome for some pups. This costume is also easy for your dog to wear on walks, which means you’ll have little trouble when it comes to going outside. Your dog’s legs will also be free, as this closes up near the neck.
Shop Now: Taco Costume (Petco, $15.39+)
The one issue with this costume? It’ll be way too tempting to dress your dog in it on a daily basis. There’s something about seeing your dog dress as a business executive that makes going into work not that bad. Prices vary by size.
Shop Now: Business Executive Costume (Amazon, $17.82+)
This is a costume that’s actually just a bandana. But if you have a dog who freaks out at the sight of a Halloween costume, this will be an easier solution to make your pup both seasonally appropriate and happy.
Shop Now: Skeleton Bandana (Walmart, $8.22)
What’s this costume? Well — tough to say. Target refers to it as “Flamingo Rider,” which is definitely accurate. It may not be to scale, but that doesn’t mean it’s not adorable. If you (or your dog) are a fan of flamingos, this may be a great costume selection this year.
Shop Now: Flamingo Rider (Target, $9.99)
Dogs might not even realize they’re wearing this costume. This sailor bib is enough to resemble a full costume, and your very good boy or girl will look stunning in it. Even better, it’s handmade with snaps instead of Velcro to help ensure it won’t fall off.
Shop Now: Sailor Cape (Etsy, $28.99)
For the past few years, Target has sold a pizza costume — both for adults and children. And every year, I think about getting it. Still, I’m empty handed. Let your dog take over the honor of being pizza, which is the most beloved dinner option of all. While Kostumed has a ton of wonderful options, pizza is great for dogs who don’t do hoods or headpieces.
