Hitch and Pooch is a professional event services company who coordinate everything to bring your dog into your big day.

We know your pets are beloved members of your family, so why not have all your family members present on your special day?

Whether you want your dog to play a key part in your service, or simply want them at the venue to be involved in the pictures Hitch and Pooch can help you. 

Having your pet attend your wedding doesn’t come without its complications. There are specific logistics to consider and when you’ve got your other half and all your guests to entertain and your big day to enjoy, the stress of also keeping tabs on your pooch can be too much and detract from your special day. The responsibility on selected guests managing this can also cause unnecessary stress for them and hiccups too.

Hitch and Pooch’s dedicated and qualified, professional coordinators are on hand to ensure your day goes without a hitch and that the focus is entirely on you getting hitched and having your day to remember while your pooch is included and taken good care of throughout. We’ll handle all the legwork so you can enjoy your once in a lifetime moments with piece of mind knowing your pooch is happy and under control. The last thing we want is your pooch running riot in all the excitement and digging into the wedding cake before the official cake cutting has taken place!

We will work closely with you to understand the role you wish your dog to play in your big day and coordinate your pup’s appearance accordingly. An element of training can be done however it is important to be realistic and to work within your dog’s capabilities – if a large crowd of people may be overwhelming or cause anxiety for your dog, perhaps ring bearing isn’t the best idea and we should stick to the family photos to avoid stage fright at such a critical moment!

We will:

  • Attend a pre-wedding meeting to discuss your plans for the day, meet your dog and even go for a dog walk
  • Collect your dog on the day
  • Transport your pet to your designated groomers for a spruce up (if desired)
  • Put on your pet’s designated bow tie, flowers or wedding attire so he looks the part
  • Safely transport your pet in style to the ceremony, reception and for photos
  • Assist with including your pet in photographs and specific roles in the ceremony
  • Feed, walk and play with your pet before and after the ceremony and during your wedding breakfast or reception
  • Return your dog home, to family or kennels at the end of the day

Price: £350. Additional dogs are charged at £25 each.

Mileage is charged at 45p per mile outside Hertfordshire, Buckinghamshire, Bedfordshire and North London.

All our coordinators are fully insured, highly experienced handlers and carers as well as canine first aid trained for extra piece of mind on your special day.

So if your big day and family photographs wouldn’t be complete without your furry companion, get in touch today to discuss your personal requirements as we’d be delighted to help make those wedding day memories even more special for you.

We also LOVE surprises so if you’re looking to surprise your other half or take your Best Man duties to the next level with a surprise pet appearance on the big day then we can help coordinate this too and we promise we can keep a secret!
