Halloween costumes aren’t just for kids. This season, you can get your 4-legged friends in on the fun with a dog Halloween costume.
And while some store-bought Halloween costumes can be expensive, we did some extra digging to find cheaper Halloween costumes for dogs that cost $20 and under. Some of our favorites even start at less than $10. And just watch out — prices have been fluctuating like crazy in the final weeks leading up to Halloween. We’re keeping this page fresh as we see deals come and go.
Whether your dog needs something a bit less restrictive (like a simple harness or headband) or he’s on the smaller side, here are some options that won’t spook your wallet. We only looked at our favorite stores for these dog Halloween costumes, like PetSmart and Target. Plus, we snuck in every best money-saving tip we know along the way, like PetSmart saving hacks and shipping secrets.
Make sure to bookmark our Halloween deals page so you don’t miss out on all of the spooktacular savings. Actually, some pet Halloween costume deals are happening early, starting at just $2.50 — check ’em out!
