Tips for including your dog in your wedding

How to include your furry family member

Including your furry family member in your special day can be a great way to honor them and show them how much they mean to you. Here are a few tips to make sure your four-legged friend is included in the celebration:

  1. Choose a designated handler: Make sure to pick someone to be the designated handler for your pup on the day of your wedding. This person should be familiar with your dog and can ensure that they’re comfortable and safe throughout the festivities. Check to see if there are businesses that offer this in your area – there probably is!
  2. Prepare your pup: If your pup isn’t used to being around large crowds, you may want to take some time to get them acclimated. Take them to a busy park or even have a rehearsal of sorts. This will help them become comfortable with the environment and the people they’ll be around. Do they need some additional training when it comes to crucial commands like “sit” and “stay” as well? Make sure to brush up on these too!
  3. Have a backup plan: If your pup just isn’t feeling it, it’s ok to put their comfort and safety first. Make sure to have a backup plan in place in case your pup isn’t up for the task. This can be a crate inside, or someone to take them back to the hotel room.
  4. Treats, treats, treats: Having some tasty treats on hand can be a great way to keep your pup happy during the wedding. This will also come in handy when it comes to the photos.

I hope these tips make having your pup a part of your big day a breeze!
