No big deal, go for it, but think it through!

First off, ask yourself some questions:

  • How well trained is your pup?
  • Will he or she be easily distracted by people, ribbons flying in the wind, or flower petals on the floor?
  • If you want your pup to be a part of your ceremony, can you trust the dog to not relieve him or herself or bark during the ceremony or say on the aisle way? Would it be a devastating or just a funny story if it did?
If you want your pup to be a part of your ceremony or wedding day, but cannot trust or rely on him or her to be quiet and on que, then you may want to rethink including your dog, unless you are open to some spontaneous barking or possible disasters. Or look at ways that include your dog, but keeps him or her away from the wedding day spotlight. Areas you can incorporate your canine bud in your wedding:

Things to Consider for your Canine Ring Pillow

Canine Ring Pillow Tricks and Considerations

Canine Ring Pillow

Though most couples tend to designate cute human relatives to fill the role of “ring bearer”, some believe that the only young face they need in the wedding party is covered in fur. A canine ring pillow allows you to designate that most honorable of wedding party tasks to the friend you can always count on – your dog. The difference between a normal ring box or pillow and a canine ring pillow is the fastening mechanism. While young children have to hold a normal ring pillow, a canine ring pillow either fastens to a dog’s collar or has a long enough ribbon that your dog won’t have to hold on to anything.   Pooches of any size can enjoy the convenience of a canine ring pillow; just make sure they’re sized correctly. Take the measurements of a canine ring pillow and try to visualize how it will look attached to your dog on your wedding day.

You may think that you can keep track of your dog before and after he walks down the aisle, but the last thing you want is your canine ring pillow wrecking havoc through the pews!
