Start to think about how you would like to incorporate your pet(s) into your day. Think about the timeline - what time we should arrive and how long we should stay. Will your pet(s) be there for the first look? Part of the ceremony? If you don't know exactly what you want, that's ok too! We can talk about what plans you have in place already and what other pet parents really enjoyed. This is a great time to schedule a free phone consult.
To reserve your date and sitter, we require a deposit. The deposit will guarantee that we're available for your date, and prevent it from being reserved by someone else. It will also allow us to make the “Pawfect” plans for you and your fur baby! Often times, your final timeline may not yet be locked and that some details may change between the date you book with us and your wedding day. Rest assured, we’ll discuss any potential changes during the final call, and we'll adjust the timeline and invoice at that time.
Our final coordination call takes place about 3 weeks before your event date. This helps to ensure we all have all the correct information and finalize all the last minute fine details. After the finals call, we'll send you the final checklist and timeline for approval, as well as your final invoice.
