German Shepherd Dog Costume Ideas

*Typical costume size: Large, Extra Large for some individuals.

Costume fit challenges and advantages:

  • Deep chest and long body. Some costumes large enough to accomodate a deep-chested dog will be too big around the neck for your Shepherd. Don't go by neck measurement in choosing a costume or you'll probably end up with one that's too small.
  • Hats - typical, erect German Shepherd ears are a challenge to some hat styles. Avoid hoods and wide hats, look for something that can fit between the ears. On the plus side, it's pretty easy to keep a hat on a Shepherd if the hat's strings have a loop at the top for the ears.

Some GSD's may be less than thrilled at the idea of dressing up in a fancy, fru-fru costume. If that's the case with yours, may we suggest something simple like a hat, bandanna or one of the Dog Riders costumes? (Which is basically just a harness with a figure attached to it).

Is your dog more willing to play the costume game? Even if he's just a household pet he probably dreams the same heroic dreams as his career-dog counterparts, working law enforcement and search and rescue.
