The one who has always had the purest of hearts…. The one we can always count on. The one who will defend us to the very end!
Of course we like to dress our dogs as superheroes.
While there are endless funny dog costumes in the world, (ahem), there is something about a dog superhero costume that will never stop being amusing. Maybe because they’re so small, and the suggestion of them as Herculean beings is a brilliant contrast. This type of costume is good for many types of costume parties, not just Hallowe’en!

Batman Costumes For Dogs
There are a surprising amount of different Batman-themed styles just on this one website, so you can pick out whatever kind would suit your pet the most! Do you want rhinestones? A Dark Knight style? Or just a cool Batman cape? Here are just a few of the many options that you and your dog will love.
Bat Girl Dog Costume
I get the vibe this costume may make your dog extra dangerous to cats. Just a friendly warning…
Batman – The Dark Knight Dog Costume
These ones are extra funny when they’re running – like the cape is flying in the wind! This one would be hilarious for a pup who is “guard dog” minded. I can imagine them surveying the trick or treat group, always making sure you haven’t lost anyone in the Hallowe’en fray!
Casual Bat Dog With Hood Costume
This one made me laugh because it seems like the most casual superhero outfit imaginable, almost like a hoodie – Batman training in his cave, chillin’ without much to prove? This could be good for a cuddly pup.

Very Frilly Wonder Woman Dog Costume
What a fun combo of Wonder Woman and Miss World… Not all girl dogs would seem natural in a tutu like this. This is clearly for divas only!
Superman Dog Costume
A belt, a shirt, a cape – boom, you’re Superdog. I think this looks quite chic, actually.
Super Glam Supergirl Dog Costume
Another diva dog costume! Although this one is more dog drag than dog pageant girl… Eleganza!
Marvel Costumes For Dogs
Marvellous! Baxterboo carries not only the most cherished superheroes such as Superman, but they have unpredictable choices too, such as Groot and Thor… Here are a paw full of our current favs.
Captain America Dog Costume
Okay, so far this one appears to be the most effective at creating a real “superhero” style. The texture of the padding evokes the real life costumes a bit! I know I would feel extra safe with this one next to me on All Hallow’s Eve, WwoOoOo…
Optimus Prime Dog Costume
Ok. Let’s be real. This photo is terrible. The hat looks like it was edited on in 2D…. But hey, if you like the idea of doing something funny and silly with your pal, you could have a grand old time dressing them up as one of the The Ultimate Protectors… Optimus Prime!!
Spiderman Dog Costume
Oh. Hey. S’up. What’s that? Yeah I climb walls now too. None of your human food is safe.

Ninja Turtles – Donatello Dog Costume
I would honestly pick this one as the winner of the bunch – it has the most texture & the most details without seeming like it’s complicated to put on. Plus, you can order one for all four of the TMNT if you have dog squad goals!
Buzz Lightyear Dog Costume
Here to blast us off with a strong ending is an oldie, but a goodie. Oh Buzz Lightyear, I hope the new generation of kids watches you and laughs and cries as much as I once did. This costume is a bit more of an original choice than most of the staple superheroes…
