Are you insured?

Yes, as a fully insured dog sitting company, we provide comprehensive coverage for our services. This additional insurance offers peace of mind to venues, particularly once they realize our sole focus is on the wellbeing and care of your pet. Our presence means added security and assurance for both the venue and your special day.

So, you marry dogs?

Nope, not our thing. We specialize in helping human couples include their furry friends in the wedding festivities, not in marrying bow-wows with vows! But we do help include them in your ceremony, whether it be strutting their stuff down the aisle, acting as ring bearer, or serving as dog of honor. We’re here to help you every step of the way!

Why hire a professional wedding dog sitter?

Opting for a professional pet sitter, especially through our services, means you won’t have to worry about a thing on your big day, and your pet will enjoy a fun-filled, stress-free experience! Keep in mind that the guests you entrust with your pet are also integral to your wedding celebration. It’s essential for them to be fully present and enjoy the day without stress too. Our expertise in hospitality and events plays a crucial role in ensuring everything runs seamlessly. We coordinate with other vendors, stay adaptable to the ever-changing wedding timelines, and come prepared with a pet ‘goodie bag’ equipped with essentials like poop bags, treats and puppy wipes. By choosing us, you ensure that both you and your pet have a fantastic, worry-free celebration

My Dog is crazy - Is It Even Possible for My Dog to Participate in the Wedding?

We often hear this. Our services are tailored to meet both your needs and those of your pet. Whether it’s just showing up for photos or engaging in a day packed with exercise, we’re confident in crafting an experience that ensures your pet’s happiness and comfort. We offer a complimentary meet & greet session to understand you and your dog better, assessing what would suit their unique needs and personality. We can help you ensure they are included on your special day.

What if They Can't Be in the Ceremony?

Regardless of the circumstances, involving your pet in your wedding day goes beyond just giving them a part in the ceremony! We provide various options, such as having them join just for photos.

You can chat with us around our suggestions for including your pet in your wedding day, even if they don’t have a role in the actual ceremony.

Do you provide transportation?

Yes, we transport your beloved fur babies to wherever they need to go and ensure a comfortable and safe journey for them.

Why experience and reliability matters

Choosing us as your wedding dog sitters ensures safety, professionalism and reliability, as each of our sitters has extensive experience in handling dogs, and they have either been extensively trained for weddings or bring that experience themselves. All our sitters are police-checked and certified professionals, offering the highest standard of care. Unlike using a general dog-sitter or generic platform, where sitters may not have specialized wedding experience, our team is adept in the nuances of weddings and events. While other platforms might seem cost-effective, our seasoned professionals, equipped with event management skills, specialized wedding training and dog handling, ensure your special day runs smoothly without compromising the care and attention your pet deserves.

Can You Help Include Our Pet in Our Engagement Photos?

Definitely! We handle all the details, allowing you and your fiancé to concentrate on enjoying the moment, while your photographer can focus on snapping those perfect pictures!

Where do you offer your services?

We provide services across Australia. Please note that certain locations might incur additional travel expenses.

what if our venue is not pet-friendly?

If your chosen venue initially appears not to be pet-friendly, don’t worry – we’re here to help. Our first step is to engage with the venue to fully understand their specific policy restrictions. Often, the reluctance to allow pets stems from liability concerns. As a an insured pet sitting company, we offer comprehensive coverage that addresses these concerns, which can lead to venues becoming more open to accommodating your pet.

We make it clear to the venue that our sole purpose is to cater to your pet’s needs, providing dedicated care throughout the event. This often encourages venues to reconsider their policies. However, in cases where the venue maintains a strict no-pet policy, we won’t stop there. We’ll collaborate with you to explore alternative ways for your pet to be involved in your special day. This could include having your pet present just for a portion of the event, like the photo session, ensuring they’re still a meaningful part of your celebration.
