A Pad 4 Paws are a Devon-based Dog Chaperoning service and a Doggy Daycare/Dog Walking service that allows your special pet to become part of your wedding day. Your wedding day is one of the most important days of your life, and we understand that your four-legged friend should be there. Owners Sue and Pete offer a dedicated and individual service to each dog. By only taking in a small number of dogs, they can ensure that your dog receives the attention they deserve.
A Pad 4 Paws offer a BESPOKE service which includes your dog being collected and chaperoned throughout your wedding ceremony. They will ensure that your precious pooch is present for photos and will stay with them all day while you enjoy your wedding. Once your puppy is all tired out, they will take them back aPad4Paws (following a successful meet-up). This is where they will spend the night, socialising and playing with other dogs.
They also provide a pet sit after the chaperone for dog-friendly venues. This means that the dog may be staying at the venue, and therefore, they will hand the dog back to the couple/family member at the end of the wedding reception.
We take photos and videos of your dog/s during your day and then send them across to you as a personalised aspect of their day! At no extra charge.
We are looking forward to hearing from you soon!
NB: our 2024 and 2025 diaries are filling up fast so do get in touch soon to avoid disappointment.

Exemplary service! Such a brilliant idea and so glad we found them!
The girls were never too far away for pictures and we were sent a doggy diary of pictures and updates throughout the day. Everyone complimented me on how good the doggy chaperones were and I agree!
Sue was the pinnacle of professionalism from start to finish. Her communication with us from initial booking through until the day was exemplary. She is so friendly and kind and an absolute credit to the industry.
Her price was incredibly reasonable too. I could not recommend her more and I'm so grateful we found her!
A home from home for our pups!
Sue & Pete are absolute stars!
Pete was so accommodating on the day and Archie loved spending time with his new bestie!
Pete was on hand when we needed Archie for photos and everything was seamless and stress free! We felt confident that he had Archie under control, Archie is very strong and can pull somewhat but Pete made it look easy which was really reassuring for me.
They went above and beyond and we are so extremely grateful for the wonderful pictures and videos Pete captured on the day, and was a really lovely surprise to have these sent over the day after our wedding and we loved seeing our day from Archie’s point of view.
I really couldn’t recommend these guys enough! Absolutely amazing!! Thank you so much for everything and bringing our dream of having Archie at our wedding, a reality.
All our love,
Laura, Sam & Archie xx
An amazing bespoke service
It was such a comfort to know that on our special day that our beautiful girl was in such loving & caring hands. Sue & Pete’s love of animals was so evident from the start and every little attention to detail was provided. Even on the day nothing was set in stone and their flexibility to our needs shone through.
Thank you for being there at just the right moment and allowing us to capture such perfect memories of all of us together.
With love from us both & lots of woofs and quite a few licks from Poppy.

Best thing we had for our wedding!
We had a few hurdles to overcome when we got another puppy 9 months before the wedding and there was a risk she would be in season. There was no trouble at all for Sue and Pete to help us, of course they would take our new puppy and they worked out a plan with us in case she did come into season and she couldn't stay with them. I was so grateful for their help and support as I was so worried about what to do.
Both of our dogs could stay with Sue and Pete, we had our meet and greet at their home where Merlin and Morgana got settled and welcomed with open arms.
The day of the wedding... it was perfect to have Merlin and Morgana there, it just made everything that much more special to have our whole family there. I can't thank Sue and Pete enough for making it possible. Merlin and Morgana had the best time with Sue and Pete, and I got regular updates of how they were getting on and even some behind the scenes photos of the dogs on the wedding day.
One in a Million
Perfect in every way!!!!!!
We are so grateful to have come across APad4Paws and highly recommend them to anyone. Our dog Douglas has found a new friend in Sue and we will always remember how smoothly our big day went thanks to her.
Thank you so much!
From the first familiarisation to the excellent communication and venue visit right through to the day itself. They have been. I thing short of brilliant. Luna is a nervous dog but they made her feel so settled and comfortable with them.
Having Luna at our wedding was amazing and only made possible by A Pad 4 Paws, they kept Luna calm when we wanted her in the background but also had her on hand for when we needed her.
Sue was ever so friendly and helped to support us on our big day!
I would recommend A Pad 4 Paws to anyone without hesitation.
A Pad For Paws were amazing!
Sue was a huge part of our day even though she blended into the background and did as much or as little as possible, she was flexible, helpful and just simply wonderful. I would not hesitate to recommend you use them to chaperone your dog. They helped make our day even more special and Nellie absolutely LOVED Sue!
Thank You Sue & Pete!
From the first point of communication, Sue & Pete have been extremely friendly, helpful and understanding. They were able to offer a number of options as to how Barney could be involved in the Wedding and their Service is truly bespoke; everything was tailored to us, with Barney being the main focus. After our initial Zoom Meeting, Barney attended Day Care as a Trial and this went well, Sue & Pete kept up updated with how Barney was settling in and it was so reassuring to hear from them! After this, Sue & Pete kept in touch and we had another Zoom Meeting just before our Wedding to iron out the final details.
We dropped Barney off the day before the Wedding and, again, we received lots of photos and videos to reassure us that he was settling in well. On the day of the Wedding, Sue brought Barney along and we cannot thank her enough for her hard work and professionalism. She made sure that Barney was calm and relaxed at the Venue and nothing was too much trouble for her! Not only did she make sure that Barney was around for all of the photo opportunities, she also snapped lots of photos of us all together and even photos and videos of the Wedding from Barney’s perspective!!! Afterwards, Sue took Barney back to theirs and he stayed for another two nights; this included lots of nice naps on the sofa, play time with the other dogs and some good sniffy walks!
Again, we cannot thank Sue & Pete enough for caring for Barney like he was one of their own dogs and for allowing us to have him with us on our special day; it honestly would not have been possible without them!
Having Peanut at our wedding, simply made our day!
Sue’s chaperone service was just perfect. She collected him the day before at the wedding venue and sent lots of reassuring photos and videos to show us how happy he had settled into the ‘boutique hotel’.
The day of the wedding, she took him to a local groomer she recommended, to have a spritz up for his photos. She stayed with him the whole time at the wedding and made sure he was calm and happy as it was quite overwhelming (for him and us!!).
The photos we have of us with Peanut are something we will treasure forever and feel so thankful to Sue and Pete for making our day even more perfect by offering this excellent service. Don’t think twice about having your dog and your wedding; it’s worth every single penny and more! Thanks again Sue! Amanda, Mica & Peanut xx

We had always wanted our dogs at our wedding - we just didn’t quite know how to go about it! Everybody we had ever trusted to look after our girls would all be dressed up and engrossed in the celebration throughout the day and night. Along came the very lovely Sue and Pete who took in our girls and treated them as their own on the run up to our big day, sending lots of lovely well received photos and videos. Pete accompanied our very excitable cocker spaniel and older black Labrador to the venue on what turned out to be the hottest day of the year so far! He went out of his way to ensure they were kept cool and hydrated and even managed to secure them front row seats at the ceremony - where they behaved impeccably!
We really can’t thank them enough and being able to treasure photos with our two very special guests is something that we will be forever grateful for.
It goes without saying that come Highly recommended!
