Include Your Dog In Your Wedding

Do you want your pup to be part of your big day, but wonder how best to include your dog in your wedding? From engagement announcements, to ring bearer, escorting the flower girl, or as a greeter at the ceremony and reception, your dog can definitely play a part. Take a look at these tips for a tail wagging wedding day:

Hire a trained pet professional to handle your dog to lift the burden off of a family member or other wedding guest, and to ensure the safety and comfort of your pet.

If you haven’t already, train your dog to sit on command, to walk calmly on a lead, and to refrain from jumping on people who approach them. Not only will this make the photo shoots more pleasant, but will keep everyone’s clothing paw print free.

Arrange at least a brief visit with your pup at the wedding location prior to the big day to allow the dog to become comfortable with the sights, smells and sounds. If involved in the ceremony, be sure to do a few test runs at the rehearsal.

Check pet policies with your venue – see if they will accommodate you on your big day. If they don’t allow animals inside, your dog could still be included in an outdoor photo session.

Arrange for a bath or groom prior to the event. You will be looking your best and your dog should too!

Let your photographer know in advance so your pup’s pics can be done first. You want your dog’s part finished quickly so he can rest, get hydrated, have a potty break and relax.

Talk with your wedding planner or florist about having a special collar or outfit made. From a flowered collar, to pearls and a tutu, you can easily plan to compliment your wedding party’s attire for the photos and ceremony.

With the proper preparation and planning, you can have everyone in your family attend your wedding – even those with four legs!
