DIY Police Dog Halloween Costume

How to make a super easy Halloween costume for your dog: Police dog! 

My son dressed up as a police officer and my husband as a criminal so I decided to whip up a quick costume for the puppy. He's going as a K-9 Cop! I wanted to have the police dog look without labeling him as an actual police dog. I think it came out pretty well, and took sooooooo little effort on my part. Yay. I've been sick and I wasn't sure that Rocky would have a costume in time this year.

Supplies listed below may include affiliate links to the products.

  • Embroidery machine
  • Felt
  • Stabilizer
  • Dog coat- preferably black/gray
  • Glue gun


All I did is add a label to the anxiety vest I made my other dog a long time ago. If you have a dog coat already, you won't even need to make anything.

Then I used my embroidery machine to embroider a piece of black felt with white lettering. Super simple. I attached using a glue gun.
Create a patch for your vest and glue it on.

Very simple, but doesn't the pup look sharps with our family police costumes?!
