Your Best Friend At Your BIG Day!

Our Wedding Dog Sitter Service

How do you include your dog in your wedding? If you’re planning a wedding and you are a proud dog owner, we’re sure that you can’t have failed to notice that #dogsatweddings is now an actual ‘thing’!

Barking Mad strongly believe that dogs are a real part of the family and as such, it is only natural that you would want to include your dog in your wedding day. However, picture perfect social media images don’t always tell the full story and having your pet attend your big day can be full of potential problems. We are proud to offer our Furrytail Dog Wedding Chaperone Service to take all the hassle and headaches out of having your hound around on your special day.

Wedding day dog care can be problematic as the friends and family you would usually call upon to help out with your four legged best friend, will often all be attending the wedding themselves. Although you may wish to share a part of the day with your pooch, such as the photographs or perhaps even the ceremony, attending a full wedding day would just be too overwhelming for them.

Our national network of dog sitting professionals will happily step in to care for your pet, allowing you to relax and enjoy your wedding, knowing that your dog is in safe hands. By accompanying your dog on the day itself, we can ensure that we create an experience which you and your guests will love. We will provide fantastic photo opportunities and create treasured memories, whilst also ensuring the happiness and welfare of your dog.

Our service is fully bespoke and flexible and we are happy to discuss your exact requirements. Our wedding package starts from £289, which includes 3 days (and 2 nights) of dog care, transport costs and a professional chaperone service for one dog.

Important dog wedding considerations:

• If you wish to include your pooch, ensure that you book a dog friendly wedding venue or one with an outside area for photographs

• Ensure that all guests will be aware that a dog is attending the wedding, in case of allergies. A lovely idea is to send out a ‘save the date’ card featuring a photo of your dog

• You may wish your dog to simply be a guest of honour at your wedding but if you would like them to play a specific role in the ceremony, think carefully about how this will work. Popular choices are a dog ring bearer or a dog flower girl but ensure that your pet has the right temperament to cope with all the attention

• If you are considering a special dog wedding collar or accessory, make sure that it is safe and comfortable for your dog. Certain flowers or foliage can be poisonous to dogs so it is vital to check

• Let your wedding photographer know that you are planning on bringing your dog to your wedding. This will ensure that they are ready to capture your adorable pet in action and come up with some great fun ideas for wedding photos

• At busy times our pet chaperoning and dog home boarding service is very much in demand. To avoid disappointment we would advise getting in touch as soon as possible. We would love to chat to you about your exciting plans and how we can help you have a real furrytail wedding!

• In the run up to the wedding, we will be happy to receive instructions and updates as you progress towards the day itself and are happy to help in planning our role

• At an agreed time on the day before the wedding, we will collect your dog and chauffeur them to a specially selected host family who will help them relax before preparing for the wedding

• We will ensure that your dog is exercised, brushed and accessorised (if you wish) before attending the wedding venue

• During the wedding we will chaperone and care for your dog, paying full attention to their comfort and needs. Our wedding dog sitters are all fully insured and experienced team members

• After your dog’s role in your wedding is complete, for example after the photographs, we will return them to their holiday home, to relax for the rest of the day, being lovingly cared for with their every need taken care of

They can just stay for one night, whilst you enjoy your reception, or for the full duration of your honeymoon. We will also chauffeur your dog on the return home.
