Wedding Wednesday Proposals

So as many of you already know we love dogs in weddings. What about the whole proposal that leads to the wedding? That’s pretty important and likely to be the story you tell your grandkids for years to come. A marriage proposal is important and is usually done in a very personal, creative and unique way.

Many furry friends are couples first baby, therefore, including him or her in the proposal is a very cute gesture! Below are some tips & ideas for having a puppy proposal.

{Ring Around The Collar}

This is a very classic proposal with the doggy having the engagement ring attached to his/her collar. Make it extra special by having your dog wear a bow, floral collar or a bow tie for that extra dapper look.

TIP: for added security (depending on your dog) you can put the ring inside a ring box. Timing is important so do a few test runs with your dog and make sure he/she comes over when called for their part.

{Message In A Bottle}

Ok not necessarily a message IN a bottle but a written proposal that utilizes your pup. You can get a dog tag made that simply says “will you marry me” or have a little sign around your dogs neck that pops the big question for you!

{Balancing Act}

This requires skill on behalf of your dog. Practice, practice, practice. We also recommend using a box with this one. Tell your fiancé to be, “Hey look at Rover’s new trick!” And have your dog patiently waiting with the ring box balanced on their nose!

{Custom Clothing}

Have a shirt or hoodie made for your dog that does the proposing for you. It will surely catch anyone’s attention and after reading the message be prepared for tears.

Don’t have a dog to use for your upcoming proposal? Not to worry! Ask a friend. Chino is also available and has a bow tie and even a tux. He prefers upfront payment in bully sticks. Once you have proposed we can help have your dog in the engagement photos or wedding check this out weddings 

Fur Friday Patios & Dogs

With the sun FINALLY shining, patios will be opening all over and some will even welcome your four-legged friend. Below are some tips for pet etiquette while at outdoor patios.

  • Make sure to pack a few essentials for your dogs such as a travel bowl and some snacks to avoid giving him/her food off your plate
  • Bring a non-flexi leash that you can tether to your chair to ensure your dog cannot run off
  • Ensure with the hostess that your dog is in fact allowed on the patio premises (some by laws allow dogs on the other side of the fenced area of a patio to ensure that they are away from food items)
  • Ask to be seated in a shady area so that your pooch does not overheat
  • Before sitting make sure there is not food on the ground where your dog will sit, purses, bags or other items they  may get into
  • Prior to leaving make sure to return any bowls that may have been provided to you, check if your dog may have gone to the bathroom while you were not looking and be sure to thank your waitress

Enjoy the summer with your dog and make the most of it!
