My dog Poppy is the literal light of my life, but regardless of my begging and pleading, she refuses to dress up for Halloween. I know, I know—she’s so selfish! That said, I can’t help but wonder if the reason she’s never been into it is because I’ve yet to find The Costume. You know, the one that makes her wag her tail! Luckily, Target’s selection of pet Halloween costumes this year includes tens of pages of options, so I have a feeling I’ll finally be able to win her over.
If you have a small pup like Poppy, a bigger dog or even a kitty cat, Target is your one-stop shop for pet halloween costumes. They have everything from velcro-on hats and wings to full-on costumes that require a little wriggling to get your furry friend all dressed. But trust, the results are worth it! Plus, most of the costumes come in tons of sizes and are mega-affordable. Like, usually under $15 bucks.
A reminder—if your pet is particularly sensitive, please don’t wrangle them into a costume that makes them feel uncomfortable in the name of a cute photo op. That said, if like Poppy, they’d be game for the right look, by all means order multiple options! Target has everything from Jack-O-Lanterns to candy corn sweaters to spaceman suits and lion’s manes. Oh, and don’t even get me started about the food-related costumes. Puppy as hot dog? Cat as cupcake? It’s cuteness overload.
Below, read on for a few of my favorite pet costumes, or hit up the Target site for even more Halloween goodness.

Pumpkin Full Body Dog & Cat Costume
Let’s start with a classic, shall we? This Jack-O-Lantern moment is too cute to pass up.
Wizard of Oz Dorothy Pet Costume
Okay, even non-dog lovers are likely to swoon over this cute costume. Why not make it a familiar affair and dress up the squad like the crew from the Wizard of Oz?
Bat Wings Cat Costume
If you don’t think your kitty will go for a full-on costume, start small with these $5 wings.
Lion Ruff Dog & Cat Headwear
Another tiny-yet-effective accessory to consider is this adorable lion’s mane.
Robot Halloween Dog & Cat Costume
This robot costume also kind of doubles as an astronaut. Either way, it’s a lot of bang for your buck at under $15.
Tiger Dog & Cat Costume
If you’ve got a big dog, I feel like you have no choice but to dress them up as a tiger and go as the Tiger King yourself.
Lobster Frontal Dog & Cat Costume
I’m sorry, but the googly eyes on this lobster costume have me cracking up. It’s ridiculous in the best way!
Cupcake Halloween Pet Costume
Show off how “sweet” your pet is (get it?) with this adorable cupcake costume.
Hot Dog Dog Costume
There’s nothing cuter than a dachshunds dressed as a hot dog!! The more dogs I see in this costume, the merrier!!!
Candy Corn Dog & Cat Sweater
Ugly Christmas sweaters are a thing, so why not Halloween sweaters? I love this candy corn-inspired option.
Pineapple Dog Costume
Last but not least, I’ll leave you with this incredible pineapple getup. Has a cuter hoodie ever existed??
