Amazing care for our ring bearer !!
Couldn't recommend enough!
She was super flexible and cared for our dogs as if they where her own!
You could tell instantly that our dogs felt safe with Chris, and we didn't have to worry about them for one second as we knew they where in safe hands!
Her communication throughout was amazing and we have been recommending her to all our fellow dog parents!
Thank you Chris you were amazing!
Jess and Tom

If you want your pup at your wedding, we would highly recommend Chris!
Best decision, worth every penny!
Best Decision of our Wedding Day
Worth every penny
The BEST dog chaperone for our dog Ginny on our wedding day
Totally made our day to have Basil there.
The best wedding decision we made!
100% would recommend Chris!
Helped to make our day perfect
We also asked if our dog could meet her before the wedding so our dog would know who she was.
Trish was our doggy chaperone for the wedding day. We met her beforehand and she took our dog, Nala for a walk. She spoke to us and got to know Nala. We left there feeling really confident that Nala would be in good hands on the wedding day! And Nala loved Trish!
Trish made sure we had her number and told us we could message her if we thought of anything else she needed to know. I know we had emails etc but the personal touch was really appreciated.
On the day, Trish was brilliant! She took Nala for a clean walk before the wedding. She also popped into the dressing room so Nala could see us all. She then made sure that Nala was there to meet and greet the guests before the ceremony and during the drinks reception. She also offered to come back for the evening if we wanted so Nala could see the evening guests.
Trish just made sure she was around the guests but in a place that Nala had her own space too. She was brilliant!
In the evening, she went to my brothers pod where Nala would be staying that night. She then dropped the key to my brother at midnight.
I was very happy with the service from Trish and Chris and also was very impressed with the price.
That feeling to know that our dog was happy, with a lovely person and safe was just what we needed on our wedding day and meant we had no worries! We loved having our dog at our wedding day and this was the perfect way to do it! Worth every penny!
Thank you so much!
Pip had been a little unsettled on the morning of the wedding as there were lots of people and, of course, nervous energy, but as soon as Chris arrived she relaxed completely.
Both my husband and I felt so happy knowing that Chris was with her and that she was safe and looked after at every step throughout the day.
Pip was part of our ceremony, in our pictures and able to say hello to all our guests (which she loved!). She could also go back to our room with Chris for some quiet time whenever she needed it.
I‘m so glad we found Chris, she was simply fantastic and made our day even more special!
