Americans will spend approx. $310-350 million on pet costumes for Halloween annually, far less than they plan to spend on Halloween costumes for themselves and their children.

Most popular pet costume will be a pumpkin (10.7%), with devils (8.1%) and hot dogs (6.0%) following closely behind. Ironically, some pet owners also plan to dress their pet up like a cat (3.7%) or a dog (2.0%).
