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 long back. 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.
2. Little Rainbow Costume
The little rainbow was our costume of choice for Eko when he was a small puppy. This super cute costume can fit a small dachshund perfectly. We found this dog costume at Target. Here is a similar one on Amazon: Rainbow Small Dog Costume. He is our little Rainbow Puppy.
3. Witch Dog Costume
Reno, my miniature dachshund, is sporting a black witch’s hat and jester collar. This costume was pretty easy to put on my dog. He didn’t mind sitting for a cute picture either. I found a similar costume on Amazon for you to check out.
4. King’s Crown and Robe Dog Costume
A Royal King’s Costume is so appropriate for our doxies, since they believe they rule over everyone. Amazon has a crown and royal shirt available, very similar to this design.
There are plenty of Fall Festivals and Activities for you and your dog to enjoy together this year. An Oktoberfest is full of fun events that usually include dog costume contests and doggie parades. It gives you a fun opportunity to show off your cute dachshund all dressed up for the special occasion.
Hint: Check out Costume #10 for your next Oktoberfest gathering.
6. Butterfly Costume
If your doxie desires a little less frill for their Halloween costume this year, try the Monarch Butterfly Wings Dog Costume. It is one piece, held in place by soft elastic straps. Really simple and very cute.
8. Pilgrim Dog Costume
This Pilgrim costume is a 2 for 1 deal! Your dachshund can wear this Pilgrim outfit to your next Halloween Party and be a handsome host at your future Thanksgiving Feast. The Pilgrim Boy Dog Costume includes hat and jacket with attached belt.
9. Shark Dog Costume
As you can tell from the picture, Reno was Not Thrilled about this Shark Dog Costume. I thought it was hilarious and adorable. He actually refused to move while wearing it. I found a more comfortable looking shark costume for dogs on Amazon.
Bonus Costume: Hot Dog Costume
Of course, there is the traditional hot dog costume for your dachshund. Always a winner wiener dog outfit!
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 his ID tag on his collar or has a microchip. If your dog gets spooked by kids in their costumes, he may run away. At least this way, he can be easily identified to be safely returned to you.
Keep your dog secured or away from the door when you are giving out candy to little trick or treaters.
Don’t leave your dog outside in the yard on Halloween. Some trick or treaters could tease or injure your dog on Halloween night.
Toxic To Dogs:
Candy: Dogs will easily sniff out pieces of candy if they are within reach. They will eat it…wrapper and all! Halloween candy is very toxic for your dog. Keep it stored way up high.
Here are the 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.
Food: If your dog accidentally eats decorative Indian corn or moldy Halloween pumpkins, they could get a nasty stomach ache.
Flowers: Mums are a gorgeous flower many of us display around the house in the fall season. Don’t let your dog eat mums, according to ASPCA, mums are toxic to dogs, cats, and horses.

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. Your dog could chew on those “fun looking” cords and get electrocuted.
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.
