What is a wedding day dog attendant?
A wedding day dog attendant or wedding day pet attendant is a pet care professional that is hired to attend to your pet during a special occasion.
How is that different from a pet sitter?
An attendant is different from a pet sitter because we are specifically trained for dog handling at formal events. Pawsh Weddings coordinates your dog’s participation in the event and photographs with your wedding planner and/or photographer prior to the big day. We also know loads of tricks to help your pet with all the challenging bits like staying focused for photos despite distractions, coping with large crowds, and the ultimate challenge… being able to SEE you but not be ON you while you’re both dressed for the occasion.
Will you walk my dog down the aisle?
Of course! We expertly guide your dog down the aisle with treats and encouraging words
Does my dog need special training to be in my wedding?
Not at all! As long as your dog knows their name, “sit”, and how to walk on a leash, they are wedding ready! However, individual training sessions can be added onto your package if your pup would appreciate a refresher course.
How will my dog know what to do during the wedding?
We typically schedule the meet ‘n’ greet to take place during the wedding rehearsal. That gives your pup a chance to get familiar with the venue and to practice their part in the wedding. This is usually more than enough practice for them!
Can my dog still be in my wedding even though they're hyper, anxious, and/or special needs?
You know your dog best! We are happy to make accommodations for dogs of all energy and health levels. Tell us about your dog’s needs and we’ll help create a plan that makes sense for you and your pup! Ask about our training sessions if you feel your pup needs additional practice and/or training before the big day.
What does the attendant wear?
Depending on your event we typically wear black slacks and a dress shirt or formal jumpsuit. We can also color coordinate to your specifications.
Can you pick up my dog from the groomer?
Absolutely! With our Gold and Platinum packages an attendant can pick up your pet from any location! Additional miles can be added on if necessary.
How is my dog kept safe during transportation?
Our vehicles are equipped with safety rated harnesses and seat belts so that your dog is always safe and secure while the vehicle is in motion. Other accommodations are made for dogs with vehicle anxiety and other pets.
Does Pawsh Weddings offer attendant services without transportation?
Yes! Our Silver package offers attendant services without chauffeur services. This is perfect for photo sessions where you plan on bringing your dog with you to the location, but need an extra hand once you get there.
What if I have multiple dogs?
Each dog gets their own attendant, but you don’t have to pay for another full package! Simply refer to the “Add a Dog” price listed under each package.
Are there any breed or size restrictions?
NO! We love dogs of all shapes and sizes.
What pets do you care for?
We believe any pet should be able to attend their pet parent’s wedding! This includes domestic pets like; cats, rats, birds, reptiles, chinchillas, and guinea pigs. Contact us for more details involving exotic pets!
Does Pawsh Weddings offer boarding for after the wedding?
We work with many top notch pet boarding facilities and in-home pet sitting professionals. We are happy to make recommendations based on your pet’s individual needs and personality!
Is there a deposit?
A non-refundable 50% deposit is required to reserve your date and schedule your meet ‘n’ greet.
What if what I need isn't listed in any of the packages?
We offer custom packages tailored to the needs of you and your dog. Send us an email, text, or give us a quick call!
How do I reserve my date?
You can reach us by text, email, or phone. Just tell us a bit about you, your partner, your dog, and your event, sign the contract, pay the deposit, and voila! Your date is locked in and we get to work with your other wedding professionals.
