My Favorite Christmas Costumes for Large and XL Dogs!

Finally, a post that introduces my faithful pooch hinted about on my Instagram a while ago! Our “Tiger” is a BIG, Golden Retriever/Australian Shepherd/? Mixed Mutt. We adopted him from a rescue when he was under 5 months old. He has very unique coloring, as you can see, and we were not sure when we brought home our little puppy how it would turn out!

Fellow pet-parents of larger breeds, I am sure you can sympathize with my plight to find cute costumes in his size. Usually when I come across a display of doggy-wear, there are loads of cute and humorous outfits and accessories in all the smallest sizes. However, almost never do I find similar in large sizes, or they do not carry as much in stock so they maybe sell-out sooner? Either way, Petsmart has been offering the best selection so far (Target is my second choice), especially when it comes to Christmas clothing for my big buddy. We bought him an “ugly Christmas sweater” two years ago, and he loved it!

He wore it most of the winter. We want to get him a new one, so I checked out my newest affiliate, and found several new outfit ideas! Some of them not only come in Large and XL, but also XXL! Big breed lovers, rejoice! We love our furry giants!

Petsmart usually has decent sales when you can catch them, especially online. If you are interested in these and other holiday related items, you can Save 20% Entire Stock Pet Holiday dog beds, apparel, collars & bowls at (offer ends 11/26/17)

Here are my favorite Large Dog Christmas Costumes for 2017

1. Ugly Christmas Sweater – Wonder if we can find matching ones for my husband and I? 😉


2. Another idea for if you have more than one type of furry friend.


3. A Classic!

*I must make special mention of this cute accessory to go with, or wear alone!

Happy Christmas shopping season!

  1. As of this moment I vote you as my favorite person. We have two husky crosses and a little dauschund. We always find costumes for Lulu, but nothing for our two bigger fur babies. I love the “cat did it” one. That’s so appropriate, our purr babies normally cause all the trouble at home and we have four of them so the doggies are out numbered, LOL

    1. haha, thanks! I actually went into a Petsmart yesterday and all this was on sale, plus other brands I did not post a costume from! I walked out with a cute sweater for him for $17!

  2. OMG! These are so, cute!!! I have really tiny dogs and it so hard to find clothes to fit them so I use doll clothes. If I had a larger dog, I would be getting some of these cute outfits. 🙂

  3. These costumes are so adorable! I sometimes take care of the dog of a friend when they go on holiday and she always comes at my place with beautiful outfits. I’ll suggest to them to buy her a Christmas costume as well 🙂

    1. We used to have a cat back when we first adopted our dog, and I could swear she left him with some of her bad habits!

  4. I’m sooooo glad I came across your blog! This is actually going to be the first christmas I’ve ever spent with a dog in my family !
    Growing up I loved animals but dogs were my favourite! Unfortunately I never had dogs until this year when we adopted a little one (back in february )and my life changed completely!
    And I can’t wait to dress him up for Christmas! I think the little reindeer costume is adorable!

  5. Oh these are so cute and Tiger is just gorgeous! I used to have a goldie who didn’t mind me putting a hat on him before he’d knock it off but I am not sure he’d have let me dress him uop fully! I love the ‘The Cat did it’ outfit!

  6. Wow! this Christmas costumes for dogs are really cute. I will definitely check this out, perfect for gift idea to my friend who is a dog lover.
