My Favorite Large Dog Christmas Costumes!
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 PetSmart.com. (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.
*I must make special mention of this cute accessory to go with, or wear alone!
4. In case you would rather the female version:
5. My LOL favorite! I think it is smart the antlers are attached on the hood so you do not have to chance your hound trying to take off a separate antler headband.
Happy Christmas shopping season!

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
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!

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. 🙂
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 🙂

I think the one blaming the cat is the best! And I’m glad to see there are more costumes for bigger dogs out there.
Carley Clagg says
Omg, these are so beyond cute! If I had a dog, I’d have so much fun with these outfits. Thanks for sharing!
Alicia Taylor says
I love the one that says the cat did it! We have 5 cats and I blame them for everything, too – so who can blame the dog for trying!
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!
Paige Flamm says
These are all so cute! I wish we had a family pet to dress up!
Sue Tanya McHorgh says
Awww these are so really cute costumes for dogs. I would love to get one for my dog.
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!
Tanvi Rastogi says

Beola Lawal says
Aww, they are super cute, I love them all. My friend is searching for Christmas costume for her big dog, I will be sharing this with her! Thank you for sharing this!
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!
Ellie Plummer says
Omg this is so cute! I love dogs so much so I was so excited when I read the title of this post. Thanks so much for posting this, it is so cute and I love all of the outfits.
Your welcome! There will probably be more to come, and a post about the one I did end up purchasing coming soon!

Aww These are adorable!! I wish my cat was more excited about getting dressed up. He is least bothered!
Candy Rachelle says
These costumes are so cute. I would really love to get one costume for our friendly dog.
Ana Vukosavljevic says
Haha. I’ve never really thought of dressing my dog into costume for Christmas! It’s a fun idea, I must admit. Maybe we should try it this year 😀 The fifth one is my favorite one as well!
