10 Dog Halloween Costume Ideas for Basset Hounds

Introduction

Your Basset Hound is going to want to sniff out treats this Halloween and when they use their keen sense of smell, it may lead them from door to door in the neighborhood...your pup is a natural trick or treater! That means that they definitely need a costume and luckily, there are plenty of amazing, creative ways you can dress your Basset Hound. Now, when your dog sniffs their way to your neighbor's door and lets out their trademark bark, everyone will know they are just trick or treating! Maybe they will come home with a bag full of bones...
  • Snorkeler

    If your Basset Hound ready to chase some fish? They will be once they have their snorkel costume on complete with goggles to view the beautiful blue ocean! Rather than going for a deep sea dive, your furry snorkeler would probably prefer a new fish toy this Halloween!

  • Fireman

    Sound the alarm and pull out the hose - this firepup is ready to put out any fires on Halloween. Not only will your Basset Hound look the part (those tired eyes certainly look like they have been fighting fires for hours) but they will love all the attention that firemen get - they are heroes after all! A fireman's hat and jacket prepare your dog for action.

  • Cow

    Is that a dog? A cow? A cow-dog? Halloween is all about pretending to be something you are not and your Basset Hound is definitely not a cow but they sure make a cute one! This is your dog's chance to really go incognito and see if they can make their bark sound more like a moo!

  • Aviator

    2
    Your Basset Hound was born to fly except they happen to have legs, not wings and probably can't exactly control an airplane....but hey, on Halloween, you can be anything you want! Your Basset Hound will rock this aviator costume and have people wishing pilots were always so cute.

  • Pumpkin

    The most perfect pumpkin in all the land is also your dog! No need to go to the pumpkin patch this year when you already have a pumpkin at home - your Basset Hound! Let your dog sit on the front step along with the other pumpkins and see if trick or treaters notice. It will be a trick and a treat!

  • Veterinarian

    Your dog will surely be able to understand all of their patient's needs as they speak the same language - dog. A dog who can help other dogs is a fantastic idea for a Halloween costume. This is also one white-coated veterinarian your Basset Hound won't be afraid of!

  • Cheerleader

    0
    Your Basset Hound's classic bark is definitely loud enough to be on a cheering squad so let your pup dress the part! A cheerleader costume is easy to put together (a nice hair bow and a pompom toy for your dog to carry around!) and will certainly add some pep to Halloween.

  • Football Player

    0
    Hike that ball to your football star Basset Hound but don't expect them to make a pass - your pup will likely keep the ball all to themselves and try to make a run for the end zone! A bulky little Basset Hound football player is a total touchdown on Halloween - they are sure to win the game (and the entire holiday!).

  • Nurse

    0
    If anyone needs medical attention, your Basset Hound will be able to care for them with licks and tail wags! It is a nurse's job to keep patients happy and that is exactly how you will feel when you see your dog with their cap and stethoscope.

  • Zorro

    0
    The mask of Zorro is also perfect as the mask of a Basset Hound. Grab your dog a stick to act as their sword and they will be ready to take on anything that comes their way! Or, they will be ready to hide behind the mask and take a nap!
