It's never too early (or too late) to start planning out your Halloween costumes. Not only are there often multiple parties that you need a different outfit for, but it can be hard finding an affordable, funny and creative costume that is unique without being too difficult to pull off. And if you're planning on DIY-ing something yourself or trying to create a look that includes your pet, your significant other, your best friend or a large group of people it can be even more stressful. While this list of costume ideas can't solve all of your Halloween needs, it can help pup lovers out there find the best matching Halloween costumes for dogs and owners.
Yes, that's right — 25 homemade and store-bought costume ideas for you and your furry friend that are both cute and pup-friendly. Of course, we kept dog safety in mind as well, considering the American Veterinary Medical Association advises dog Halloween costumes to not interfere with your pup's hearing, breathing, sight or mouth. That in mind, whether you're looking for something super low-lift and cheap, something pop culture-related or something that's just plain adorable, there's a costume for you and your pup on this list.
Not only is this a great trio costume, but a lot of it can be made from things you already have at home, like a kid's t-shirt. Who doesn't love a good homemade costume?
