Whether your dog’s agility marks him as a pro Quidditch player or the house is a disaster through canine magic gone haywire, dressing your pup as a Harry Potter character shows that your canine can handle any Halloween adventure.

Does your pet wear the halo in your family? Show off your dog’s heavenly side by dressing them up as an angel. The wings will share their sweet demeanor with the Halloween throngs, but if that is just wishful thinking, then a dark angel is a better option.

Martini Cone

If your dog is going through tough times by rocking a “cone of shame” from a recent surgery or doctor visit, you can easily use this to your advantage by transforming the cone into a martini glass. Just add a stick with some painted styrofoam balls for the olives, and your dog will become the neighborhood’s best bartender.
