Halloween… our pets’ time to shine, or their worst nightmare? Probably a little bit of both. On the fourth floor we’re strong promoters of everything and anything cute, so we’ve wrangled a few of our furry friends into some costumes, and rounded up some inspiration pics that shouldn’t be missed. Halloween is just a couple of days away – does your pet have a costume yet?
We’re definitely not above matching pet/owner costumes. Think dynamic duos: Calvin and Hobbes, Lone Ranger and Tonto, Scooby and Shaggy, Dorothy and Toto… endless possibilities here. We’re loving this adorable Batman/Robin duo.

Let your pet’s breed or colouring influence their costume. All this little Chewbacca needs is an owner dressed up like Han Solo, and commitment to a grooming plan that starts weeks before October 31st.
Allow your Chihuahua to embrace his heritage by giving him a tiny little sombrero.

Halloween isn’t just for dogs! Imagine how much fun you’d have wrangling your cat into this Harry Potter costume.
|This cat obviously loves being Harry.
If you’re not quite ready to go for the full hat/glasses option with your cat, adding a lion’s mane might be an easier option.
Some pets enjoy dressing up more than others. This little superhero puppy loves the camera!
|Up, up and away!
The key is to pick a costume they can’t wiggle out of, as much as they try. This isn’t cruel – they’ll end up having a great time, we promise.

Sometimes all you need is a little hair accessory. Recommended for the misbehaving dog who just won’t stop struggling.

Just like humans, pets experience solidarity in numbers. A group costume prevents your pup from feeling awkward or out of place.
|A gold star for the pet owner who trained all these dogs to sit and pose.
Don’t let the size of your pet limit your imagination!
