Top 10 Ninja Turtle Dog Costumes – Awesome, Dude!

When it comes to Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle dog costumes there are a lot of fun options and styles for dogs of all sizes. From shells that fit like a harness to full costumes, Scout has you covered for Halloween, dog parades, benefits, and more. Our pick for the best costume is the basic shell and mask array. A full headpiece is too much for some dogs and the harness style shell is easy to adjust and get a great fit. This is also a good option for larger dogs or those that are built short and stout like pugs!

Some costumes may be easier for some dogs to wear than others. If you and your dog have been together awhile then you may have noticed that certain things bother them more than others. Some costumes go over the ears which can feel unnatural to many dogs. On the other hand, there are dogs that seem like they are into wearing clothes, especially when they realize all the love and attention it gets them when they are around other people. Costumes can also be part of a revolving wardrobe for your dog that gets cold easily. 

Don’t expect your dog to immediately be into the idea of any costume. If you can do it then get your costume well ahead of the time you want them to wear it so you can give them ample time to get used to it. You don’t want to be in a situation where you have an hour until a fundraiser only to realize there is no way your pooch is going to get into that costume you spent so much time finding and thinking about.

This an officially licensed Leonardo costume that covers a lot of a pooch. The headpiece gives them some extra eyes and the full body suit aspects will help keep a dog warmer.

There are just too many spots where they can get at the costume and damage it. For the calm dog that is used to clothes though, this costume is the real deal and still under $20.

General Tips

As you can see there are a lot of really cool turtle costumes to choose from. If you have a hard time deciding then you might want to get a basic strap-on shell and make different colored masks so your dog can be a different turtle whenever the occasion calls for it. Sizing and the build of your dog should also be major factors to consider. A dog needs to be as comfortable as possible in their costume if you want them to be on good behavior and at ease. Starting with very simple dog clothes and working your way up to a full costume is advisable especially if you are the proud dog parent of a puppy that is still trying to find their way in the world!
