Top 10 Halloween Costumes For Dachshunds

  • 1. Colorful Caterpillar Costume

The colorful caterpillar costume is perfect for Dachshunds!  It is extra long, so it will cover your doxie’s back and it’s easy to put on.  As you can see, my dachshund, Eko, looks adorable and vibrant in his new costume this year.  You can find a similar colorful caterpillar costume on Amazon.

Halloween Safety Tips For Your Dog

Secure Your Dog:

Whether your dog is dressed up in a Halloween costume or not, make sure your dog has their ID tag and collar on or has a microchip. If your dog gets spooked, they may run away.  At least this way, they can be easily identified and safely returned to you.

Keep your dog secured and away from the door when you are handing out candy to trick or treaters.

Halloween Toxins:

Food:  If your dog accidentally eats decorative Indian corn or a moldy pumpkin, they could get a nasty stomach ache. Watch them carefully.

Flowers: Mums are a gorgeous flower many of us like to display around the house in the fall.  Don’t let your dog eat any mums, according to ASPCA, mums are toxic to dogs, cats, and horses.

Candy:  Dogs can easily sniff out pieces of candy if they are within reach. Keep all candy away from your pup.

Symptoms of chocolate poisoning: vomiting, diarrhea, rapid breathing, increased heart rate, and seizures.  Take your pup to the vet immediately if they consume any Halloween treats.


Halloween Decorations:

Halloween decorations can be hazardous to your dog.  Keep electrical cords, cobwebs, and spooky dangling décor up high enough and secured so your dog can’t reach them.

Glow Sticks: Keep glow sticks away from dogs.  Luckily, most glow stick liquid is non-toxic, but can still make your dog very sick.

Unfamiliar Faces in Costume:

Halloween costumes make familiar people look very different to your dog.  Be aware that your new spooky look may frighten them.

When we had a Halloween party, my dog, Bastian, didn’t recognize us and went right into a seizure.  I felt horrible!  We now keep him in a secure and quiet area during Halloween events.
