20 Pet Halloween Costume Ideas That Will Make Your Heart Melt From Cuteness

Sure, you spend a ton of time coordinating your own perfect Halloween costume. But, that doesn't mean you should completely forget about making sure that Fido is equally as festive. Luckily, there are plenty of adorable pet Halloween costumes that will immediately transform your four-legged friend into the life of the party — as if they weren't already.

Admittedly, I probably love my dog a little too much. And, I don't really think there is anything that could make him any cuter. But, some of these Halloween costumes? Well, even I have to say that they're pretty darn cute. And I'm not the only one — according to the National Retail Federation, one in 10 pet owners will dress up their animal companions this year. Let the "awww"s roll in.

I know that there are some people out there who are totally against dressing up animals. And, hey, to each their own I guess. But, those same people tend to forget that the same rule applies to me. So, if I want to dress up my mutt as a hamburger or a gangster, then that's my prerogative. Don't be jealous just because my dog is showing you up on Halloween.

So, if you're looking to get your pet into the Halloween spirit, here are 20 pet Halloween costumes that will make your furry friend even cuter. The hard part is picking just one. Maybe that means I just need to get more dogs...
