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.

When you first bring home a new puppy, you’ll have so many firsts to look forward to. Some milestones — the first accident, for example — aren’t quite as cute as the others, so that’s why you’ll want to start training with your pup as soon as possible. Understanding puppy training stages will help you break down all your goals into realistic steps, making you and your new best friend more likely to succeed.
Remember, training your pup is just one important aspect of their well-being. Ensure you’re taking care of their diet, health, and happiness, too. Good luck and keep reading to learn about a puppy training schedule.

Here's your ideal puppy training schedule for puppies 8 weeks of age and younger
It’s important to establish a routine as soon as you bring your puppy home. Not only will this ensure that you and your pup have every need met, but it also will let your new dog become more familiar with their environment. As dog trainer Ken McCann said in his YouTube video guide for puppy training, “You’ll be setting them up for success,” especially in potty training. Make sure to supervise while they're outside, too.
Here's another idea: Luring your new pup to you with a delicious treat is a great first step toward bonding and training. At this point, they're working purely on instinct, but they're learning the reward value of treats as well as a praise word — something like “yes” or “good” to let them know they're doing well. Make sure to use this word as you continue training!
This also gets your pup used to working for a treat, which builds motivation and confidence. Negative reinforcement won’t teach anything but a feeling of unease at this age, so it’s a good idea to focus on rewards instead (and always). Now that they know that following you gets that reward, they'll soon be ready to move on to the next stage.

Dogs like to sleep in so many places: in your bed, in their own bed, on a sunny spot on the floor, and in their dog crate, to name a few. But that's not the only thing a crate is helpful for. It can keep your canine friend out of mischief and give you peace of mind when you're out of the house. A dog crate should ideally be a place of security and comfort for your pup (and it can be even better if you personalize it for their own unique needs). Of course, this raises the question of where to put a dog crate.

Have you been Googling something like, "Where to put dog crate?" We've got you covered! Always remember that a dog crate is supposed to create a safe space for your pet, while also assisting in their training, so the way you utilize that space in your home is essential for both of you.
