Costume Ideas for Toy Breed Dogs

(Pomeranian, Yorkshire Terrier, Chihuahua, Shih-Tzu, Silky Terrier, etc.)

*Typical costume size: Small or X-Small

Costume fit challenges and advantages: Even a size Small can be huge on some of the tinier toy and "teacup" dogs.

Toy dog breeds, especially the little "pocket sized" pups, are a lot of fun to dress up and generally very good natured about all the fuss! Did I mention they're also too darned cute?

Watch for costumes that are too big or too loose as your dog can trip or get tangled in them. If you buy a costume, be prepared to do a little home tailoring if necessary - trimming and sewing or glueing excess fabric to fit.

Aside from sizing issues, these fun loving companions can carry off just about any kind of costume. Storybook themes are especially cute - fairy tale princesses, a frog prince, Cinderella's pumpkin - check out these and some of our other favorites!

*(costume size and fit can vary widely for individual dogs even within the same breed. If you have any questions, we recommend you take advantage of the merchant's live help feature or call their 800 number to ask before making an online purchase)
