There’s nothing more adorable than a dog walking down the wedding aisle in a tuxedo to witness their human parents tie the knot. In today’s dog-loving culture, more and more pet owners want their pup a part of their magical day. This makes sense, especially if the couple has spent time raising their ‘fur-baby’ together.
According to a 2018 survey conducted by the online retailer Zulily, millennials today seem to believe that adopting a dog is a natural first step in a relationship. In fact, eighty-two percent of millennials are more likely to feel that getting a pet is a good start when preparing to have a family. For couples who are in love and want to share their wedding day with their dog by their side, it’s important to do a little prepping to ensure the day is paw-fection.
Get Ready Together. Bridesmaids and groomsmen get ready for the big day together, so your dog should partake in this exciting experience, too! It’s only normal to experience some wedding day jitters before walking down the aisle. Having your beloved pup close by could be great therapy since pets are known to help reduce anxiety. A simple hug or belly rub is calming for animal lovers. Plus, having your dog get ready with you is a reminder of the love both you and your partner share together.
If you’re planning on dressing your dog up, this would be the perfect time to do so. Bowties and tuxedos for boys, floral collars and tutus for girls. Make sure to have your photographer capture some photos of this priceless moment. Although four-legged attire is important, don’t forget about fresh breath. Loved ones attending the wedding will most certainly want to smooch your pooch. You can get rid of doggie breath with TEEF!; the latest innovation in dog dental care!

Easier than brushing, WAY better than chewing; TEEF! is a low-calorie, mess-free, hassle free, human-grade water additive that cleans your pet’s mouth and freshens their breath every time they drink.

Hire a Doggie Professional. It’s important to remember that before the day begins, have your dog exercised so they are on their best behavior. A long walk or trip to the dog park will probably be too much for you to accomplish yourself. Instead, plan to hire someone to help.

In addition to finding a pet sitter, you may want to hire a groomer from Pawlee that can get your pet looking and smelling their absolute best. Having this extra help before and on your big day will be a huge relief!
