When it comes to little dogs, it's often easy to dress them up in winter sweaters, sports team jerseys, and rain gear. There are plenty of costumes out there for the small dogs in your life this Halloween. Some costumes are a little more of a commitment, but all are absolutely adorable.

1- Teen Titans, GO

A mask? A cape? Who needs anything else for Halloween? This Teen Titans, GO costume is adorable and perfect for that trick-or-treating walk through the neighborhood.

2- Puppy Latte

Starbucks already created the Puppuccino for dogs to enjoy. I’ll take a tall puppy latte, please.

3- Minions

They’re small and cute, and stole the show in "Despicable Me," just like your dog will do this Halloween.

4- Pikachu

Be careful with this costume, with all the Pokémon Go players out there people actually might try to chase your little "pocket monster"!

5- Ewok

Ewoks were little bundles of fur in "Star Wars," much like your dog this Halloween.

6- Skunk

Real skunks are cute, but smell bad; this skunk costume is cute and doesn’t smell bad, at all.

7- Bumblebee

The best part of this bumblebee costume? No worries about stinging!

8- Cowboy Costume

Every cowboy needs his partner in crime; just look at this cute costume.

9- Spider Costume

The costume that proves not all spiders are creepy and crawly. Or even scary.

The classic Halloween costume, made even better because it’s for your dog!!
