Dog Christmas Outfits
Whether your dog wants to be an elf, snowman, Santa or just wear an adorable holiday dress, we’ve got them covered!
#1 Earl the Elf
This green and red elf costume comes with attached arms and legs o make your pup look like an actual elf!
Pawsative Ruffview: “Love this product – and so did everyone else! It wasn’t the most comfortable thing for our little Yorkie to wear… but it was Oh so cute!! Definitely recommend for a bunch of Ooooos and Awwwwws!”
#2 Lady the Little Helper
Do you have a feeling that your pup sneaks off in the wee hours to help Santa in his workshop? This is the outfit for him!
Pawsative Ruffview: “Loved it! My daughter had an Elf themed Christmas party and of course we had to dress up our French Bulldog. It fit great around the neck, but was really lose and long in the legs. Every time he walked he would step on the legs.”
You can get this little Helper Costume for $22.55
Why make a gingerbread house when you can make a gingerbread dog?
Pawsative Ruffview: “I have an 18-pound Boston Terrier, and this costume in the Small size fits him great, it’s even a little loose on him so I think it’s the perfect size for a heftier Boston Terrier or French Bulldog. My dog hates wearing costumes but he looks great in this. I’m going to insert some wires into the arms of the costume to help them stick out straighter, but they aren’t all that floppy already. But I’m using this for my holiday card this year so I want it to be perfect :)”

Complete with a Santa belt and festive hat, your dog is sure to sneak down the chimney in this outfit.

#5 Snickers the Santa
It’s similar to the costume above, only with stick out arms. This makes him look like a real human Santa!
Pawsative Ruffview: “This was a BIG hit. Lot of OMG going on. Have a 13 lb Pomeranian (Jo-Jo) and the Large size fit great over all his fur. Almost ordered Medium, but that would have been too small. He didn’t mind wearing it at all; in fact, seemed to enjoy it. Took him to all the small shops here in mid-coast Maine and couldn’t get any shopping done with this guy; everyone had to stop to make of him and/or get a picture – lotta laughs. Many people actually thanked me for bringing him around – really cheered up their season. Thanks amazon, really enjoyed this!”

#6 Ella the Elf
Bringing home dead rodents and random sticks, they may not seem like gifts to you, but she built them in her workshop!
Pawsative Ruffview: “Really sweet costume. Headband sits very comfortably on dog’s head and you can tighten it under the neck if you need more stabilization. Soft material and love the cheerful collar. Looking forward to photo ops.”
Get the Dog Elf Costume for $10
#7 Renee the Reindeer
She may not be the one delivering the gifts, but she helps pull Santa along to make it all happen on time!
Pawsative Ruffview: “We buy family pajamas every Christmas for our Christmas cards photo and this year we got some super cool looking reindeer jumpers, complete with hood and antlers. Sadly, the set we got didn’t offer any pet outfits for our chocolate lab (about 75 lbs). Luckily for us, we found this outfit at a great price. We got the XXL size which was a bit small and had a hard time keeping the hood up but it looked great! Our picture came out super once we finally got our dog to at least look in the direction of the camera for the shot! Very happy with the purchase.”

Oh, Christmas dog.
Oh, Christmas dog.
Stop sneaking sips of my eggnog.
Pawsative Ruffview: “I really like this costume for my dog who goes to visit in nursing homes. I like that it does not have a separate hat because we had one before that did and it was a lot of trouble. This one will work well.”

#11 Harvey the Hanukkah Dog
He’s all ready to light up the Menorah!
Pawsative Ruffview: “Based on the fit description I was able to get the right size (M/L) for my Shih Tzus. Well made and worked perfectly on my two pups. My boy wore the yarmulke and my girl wore the tallis for her bark mitzvah. I highly recommend!”
#12 Sally the Sleigh
Santa doesn’t need a sleigh this year. That’s because he has this pup to help! Hoping she can fly over buildings too!
Pawsative Ruffview: “We bought this for my little miniature dachshund and it got many laughs from everyone who saw it. It actually fit pretty well on him which I wasn’t originally expecting since everything fits him strangely due to his lengthy stature. You can see how it fits in the picture provided. The attached Santa held on through him running all around with it. It all attaches via velcro and seems to hold pretty tight. If you want a fun, holiday-fueled outfit for your pet that is sure to get your family and friends laughing during the festivities, this is a sure bet on getting that.”
#13 Buddy the Belted Santa Christmas Dog Costume
This differs from other Santa costumes because the hat is attached as a hood, making it easy to put on and off. It also features an adorable belt so he’ll look as much like Saint Nick as possible!

Pawsative Ruffview: “Oh my snood! This thing is ridiculously adorable! My little reindeer is the cutest. Just got 3 more. So much fun! They are very well made.

#20 Light-up Christmas Dog Sweater
Great for the holiday and for late-night dog walking, this comfy sweater can power lights for 48 hours before the batteries need to be replaced.
Pawsative Ruffview: “This product exceeded my expectations. The shirt itself was well constructed and the light feature changed colors and flashed at different rates, which was very eye-catching. Plus, it came with plenty of extra batteries, which was a nice bonus. My dog is a bit of a ham and my family made such a fuss over him in this shirt that he didn’t want to take it off. He wore it for the majority of two days and the batteries lasted. Beyond satisfied with this item!”

#23 Red Reindeer Ugly Christmas Sweater for Dog
This ugly holiday sweater comes in 7 other colors and you know it’s high-quality because it has about 1,500 reviews.
Pawsative Ruffview: “It’s sooooo cute!!!! Love it, used the photos for my Christmas card this year!!! I actually ordered a men’s small for the sweater because I didn’t see women’s in the one that I wanted, and it worked out great. I ordered the 14” length for my dog, also fit pretty well. It can be hard to find things that fit the lil guy, he is a beagle but a mix, his legs are long and skinny and he’s only 22 lbs. Just measure your dog’s back like they say and make your best guess. I think my dog’s back measure was actually longer than 14” but I went down in size because of previous dog clothes ordering experience (he is not a normal size.) Anyway, I’m very happy with it!! Happy Holidays!!!”
