We all have a teenage goth girl inside of us clawing to get out — with nails painted midnight hues and silver rings glinting from all 10 fingers. Or maybe that was just me, circa 1999. I did not have a dog of my own back then, but had I, he would have been a fitting sidekick, with accessories to match the mood. With Halloween around the corner, here are some favorites for your darling dog in beautiful black.

1. Sleepypod Air by Sleepypod

The Sleepypod Air is high on our wish lists for holiday travel. Its smart, compressible design allows it to fit under most airplane seats without compromising your dog’s comfort.

$159.99; sleepypod.com/air

2. Spike the Spider by Jax & bones

We couldn’t have a Halloween roundup without one creepy, crawly thing. Jax & Bones makes some of the finest rope toys for heavy chewers out there, and Spike, the company’s special toy for the season, doubles as doggie dental floss.

$15; jaxandbones.com

3. The Odin by Up Dog Toys

Meet the puzzle feeder toy of the moment. With its geometric lines, the Odin is one part dog toy and two parts objet d’art. One Odin is fun, but when you lock several together, your pup has quite the challenge.

$23; updogtoys.com

4. Cameo bed from P.L.A.Y.

Make your dog’s afternoon nap a formal affair with one of our favorite designs from P.L.A.Y., featuring a dapper canine cameo at the center.

5. Eight pet bowl by DripModule

If your pet’s chow-down area is the last holdout in your otherwise-modern home, treat yourself to an upgrade with the Eight, which features a lovely strip of exposed hardwood perched on hairpin legs.

$150; dripmodule.com
