Be With Your Dog When You Say I Do On Your Wedding Day

Be With Your Dog When You Say I Do On Your Wedding Day

Wedding season is in full swing, and this year you’re going to see more and more furry guests making appearances at ceremonies and receptions. You’ve probably already seen many engagement photos featuring pets – it’s definitely not uncommon these days! With 65% of households owning pets in the U.S., it’s no surprise that recently more couples are opting to include their best friends in their wedding ceremonies. Many people consider their pet to be their best friend or part of the family, so it only makes sense that more brides and grooms are taking part in this big day trend.

If you’re one of the lucky ones getting hitched this year or in the process of planning your wedding, consider inviting another member into your bridal party. It’s up to you how involved you’d like your pup to be. He can be a special guest of honor, walk down the aisle, and stand with the wedding party during the ceremony, or perhaps he could have a specific role, such as ring bearer or flower girl. Pictures with your pup is also something to consider – you’ll always want to remember those special moments!

Of course, there will be no need for you to worry about your pup’s agenda; we know you’ll have enough on your mind that day. You can put all worries aside about how your pup will look and who will assist him. The staff at Purr’n Pooch can handle, transport, groom and board your best friend for your special occasion. We’ll be prepping your pup before he makes his appearance and caring for him while you’re enjoying your first night as Mr. and Mrs., and also while you’re off on your honeymoon.

Dogs Cool Down and Stay Fit at Purr’n Pooch’s Water Parks

PNP-June-Poool-Blog-Post

It’s summer and you’re excited to the hit the water for a much anticipated swim. Winter has really taken a toll on us, including the dogs. When heading out the door, towel and sunblock in hand, you probably get that sad, perplexed look from your pup that says, “Come on. Take me too!”. Sound familiar?

We love the sun-sational days of summer and agree with your dog. You don’t have to leave your best friend behind while you hit the pool or beach to relish in another gorgeous weekend on the Jersey Shore. Stop feeling guilty and check out your local pet care facility for water activities that will accommodate your best friend.

At Purr’n Pooch our boarding and daycare dogs get to play and swim in our supervised outdoor and indoor water parks. We offer several freshwater pools and water elements like fountains and waterfalls for their enjoyment.

Water activities are not only a source of entertainment for your dog, but they also offer real health benefits. They help your pup to cool off, socialize, get in a cardio vascular workout, and enjoy a good night’s sleep. And, best of all, dogs of all ages from puppies to seniors can enjoy swimming as a healthy, low impact body workout. So while you’re oceanside this summer, register your pup for some watery fun with friends poolside.

A word from our friend Mickey’s mom about his summer fun at PNP…

“Mickey loves to play in the Purr’n Pooch pool. I say, “Mickey do you want to go to the pool club?” and he jumps in the car. When Mickey comes home, he is tired but still makes sure to tell me all bout his day. He actually makes cute barking noises like he is explaining who he has played with and what he did! He goes twice a week and enjoys his dips in the pool and time playing with friends.” Kathy Hader
