Pet Wedding - Lead Me Down the Aisle Wedding Day Dog Chaperone

How does it work?

Every day more and more  couples who are getting married want to include their pets in their big day, especially their canine friends. Wedding couples face the dilemma of how to have a stress free pet safe wedding, and who can they ask, who's good enough to look after their dog, but not good enough to be asked to their wedding!!  Then there's what to do with their pets if they are staying at a hotel on their wedding eve, or when they go on honeymoon, not to mention all the transport logistics and planning of getting their fur balls to the venues and back home again  – that’s why they book us to take care of it all and we are building a professional team of approved Wedding Day Dog Chaperones covering many areas, so we wondered if you’d like to join our team too and get paid for doing something you love?

Wedding Day Dog Chaperone is a great alternative for Wedding couples who want a stress free pet safe wedding and make sure they have the best care for their dog,  who  cannot ask family or friends to look after their dog on their big day or put them into dog day care or overnight kennels. It also provides them with the reassurances that not only are their beloved pets being cared for, but they will be able to enjoy their big day and honeymoon with total have peace of mind.
