While Halloween seems like it's lightyears away, the fact of the matter is if you're going to coordinate a killer puppy costume for your canine friend, you have to start thinking now. That's just science. And while everyone else might do the same iterations of cowboy-walking-upright year after year, you're on the hunt for something great, unlike anything else, and most importantly, will garner your fuzzy loved one tons and tons of compliments, attention, and head rubs. Here are 28 of the most unique, never-seen-before doggy costumes for 2019.

If your dog is in between sizes (or you just don't want to be bothered measuring chest width, neck girth, paw length, etc. to get proper costume measurements) this is a generous and safe bet. Bonus, there's a hidden toy inside the "shield" that will entertain your pupalup for hours while you guys make the rounds saving the city going from house party to house party.
