1. Rubie’s Toy Story Woody pet costume

Who doesn’t love Toy Story? Moviegoers young and old cherish memories of Woody, Andy, and the rest of the gang. Available in sizes small through XXX-large, this adorable, officially licensed Woody costume is sure to impress. It’s made from 100% polyester, so it’s soft and wearable for pups of all sizes. Purchasing a pet costume from an unknown, untested brand can be daunting, but you don’t have to worry about that with Rubie’s. This family-owned brand has been around since 1950, so you can trust their designs to last. Best of all, the handy sizing chart makes choosing the right size for your pet a breeze. 

2. The Child pet costume by Rubie’s Star Wars: The Mandalorian

It wouldn’t be a Halloween pet costume list without something Star Wars related. If you love Baby Yoda as much as we do (yes, we know his real name is Grogu), this precious costume makes the perfect Halloween attire for your pooch. The costume features a robe decorated with a faux-fur collar, a headpiece, and plushie hands clutching a stuffed toy frog. The Child costume was manufactured in the United States using man-made materials. Getting your pet in costume can be a hassle, but this one goes on easily thanks to its self-stick closure.

3. RosyLife lion mane wig

While it’s not an officially licensed costume, this lion’s mane wig gives us major The Lion King vibes. Made from a blend of faux fur and polyester, this wig is designed to fit most cats and small dog breeds with a neck circumference measuring 10–12 inches. Affordably priced and easy for pets to wear, this wig offers a quick solution for last-minute Halloween costumes. If you’ve ever struggled to dress your pet for Halloween, you’ll love how easy it is to slip the wig on. You don’t need to worry about this costume getting dirty, either. Wash it off with warm water and a gentle soap, leave it to air-dry, and it will look as good as new.

4. Gimilife Disney Stitch pet costume

It’s easy to find a plethora of Halloween costumes for small dog breeds, but large breeds are often left out in the cold. This Stitch costume — inspired by Disney’s beloved Lilo and Stitch — comes in sizes small through XXXX-large. The costume features Stitch’s head, ears, and tail, and the soft leg holes won’t restrict your dog’s movements while they’re showing off their cute new look. Putting the costume on is fairly easy, too. It attaches with a sticky strap that makes dressing and undressing your pet for a night of trick-or-treating a relatively quick process. 

5. Disney Tinker Bell pet costume

Although the sizes are limited to medium and large, we’re fans of fairies and Peter Pan, so we couldn’t leave this adorable costume off our list. This authentic Disney Store costume comes with an adorable dress, fairy wings, and a wig. If you think of your dog as the most beautiful fairy of them all, this is the perfect costume for Halloween. The glimmering organza dress catches the light, while gold sequins on the wings add a magical, sparkling touch to the look. Sticky fasteners make the costume easy to get on and off, meaning you won’t need Tinker Bell’s magic to help you dress your pup for the party. 

6. WistenFla funny cat pirate costume

OK, so this isn’t quite the look Captain Jack Sparrow was going for, but this costume suits Captain Hook just fine. This pirate cat costume is ideal if your cat is full of personality and enjoys dressing up for Halloween. Made of soft, breathable polyester, this costume is sure to impress. Attached arms, complete with the ubiquitous pirate’s hook, and a jaunty pirate’s cap top off the look. It’s available in sizes small and medium, perfect for cats, small dogs, and medium-sized breeds.

While not all the costumes that make up our list are officially licensed, all of them are Disney-inspired. From fairies to aliens, you’re bound to find the perfect costume for your fur baby somewhere in our top picks. Be sure to give your pet time to adjust to wearing her costume and never leave her unattended while she’s dressed for the evening. Lastly, if your pet hates wearing clothes, it’s best not to force the issue. Halloween-inspired toys — or maybe a fun, new collar — are perfect alternatives.

There are so many reasons why dogs are known for being man’s best friend. Our pups love us unconditionally -- even when we aren't being our best selves. No matter what's going on, your four-legged friend will be happy to see you. Bad day at the office? Does your boss think your work performance is lackluster? Your dog respectfully disagrees. They’ll wag their tail when they see you walk through the door and shower you with kisses. They’re loyal and loving until the end.
One of the best things about dogs is that they're just as diverse as people are. Small, large, energetic, lazy... there's a dog for anyone out there. Some people fall head over heels for larger dogs, like Labrador retrievers, because they make for great swimming, hiking, and running partners. Large breeds are also often great snuggle buddies — even if they feel like a ton of bricks in our laps and take up the entire bed. What’s more, some of the most loyal dog breeds are large ones.
If you're leaning toward adding a big dog to your home, consider these eight breeds when searching for a true-blue forever friend.

Generally, puppies require abundant sleep — some will snooze up to 20 hours per day. Every pup is different, though and as they get older, the number of sleep hours decreases. By about 16 weeks of age, most dog breeds will be able to sleep through the night.

Sleep is an essential element of human and canine development. As anyone who has had a new puppy can tell you, it can be tough at first to get them into a good sleeping routine. Still, you'll want to make sure you and your new dog are rested and fit for all that life has to offer you. Here is everything you need to know about when your new puppy should be sleeping through the night and the answer to the question, "Do puppies sleep a lot?"
