Of course you would LOVE to dress your favorite floof up in an elaborate Halloween costume. (Frighteningly-cute photo shoot alert!) But not every pet is cool with wearing a full-on Halloween getup, and if they don’t want to be a taco cat or Superdog, then so be it. No need to miss out on all the fun, though. Pet Halloween accessories, like collars, leashes and bandanas, are a simple way to ease your pet into the spooky spirit, and they make for some pretty howl-worthy pics, if we do say so.
Halloween Pet Collars and Leashes
Looking for an ultra-easy way to lean into the season that your pet will have zero reason to resist? We’ve got you. Simply swap your pet’s everyday collar or leash with a Halloween-themed one. There’s a seasonal design to suit every four-legged trick-or-treater, from classic pumpkin prints to trendy pop culture characters.
Halloween Pet Bandanas
Easy to put on and take off, a Halloween-themed bandana dresses your pet up without the hassle of having to put them in an actual dress. They’ll add a pop of color and personality, and most pets happily sport them without fuss. Tie it loosely around their neck (leaving about two fingers of space between the bandana and your pet’s neck) and secure with a tight knot. It makes a simple, chic statement at any Halloween party.
Headpieces and Hats
Headpieces and hats are some of our favorite pet Halloween accessories because they pack a lot of punch in a little package. From comical (how about a bread headpiece for your cat loaf?) to classic (nothing says Halloween like a witch’s hat), this easy-on, easy-off pet Halloween accessory will instantly transform your fur-friend and set them up for a skele-fun photo opp.
Halloween Pet T-shirts
If your pets tolerate lightweight clothing, an on-theme tee can make quite the statement—literally. With phrases like “Mommy’s Little Monster” and “Let’s Get Spooky” your pet will be the talk of the block on your daily walks. Look for on-trend glow-in-the-dark elements or a flip sequin feature, where the sequins show one design when laying one way and another design when flipped the other way.
Halloween Pet Sweaters
Live in a colder climate? Try a pet sweater on for size. Halloween sweaters provide added warmth and coverage but may be better received by fussy pets than an intricate pet Halloween costume. Styles run the gamut from dapper, Halloween-ified Fair Isle designs to fa-boo-lous color blocking.
