Your Dog at Your Wedding

Would You Like Your Dog At Your Wedding?

As a dog lover we know that your dog (s) would be an important part of your wedding plans. Would your wedding be complete without your best friend(s) at your side?

Bark2school are a family run professional pet behavioural, dog training organisation with expert dog trainers, animal behaviourist, pet sitters (and dog walkers) at hand to help you plan your special day. There is so much to consider and plan if you want your special friend to attend your wedding, but don't worry - that is where Bark2School come in! We will take the worry and strain away from you and will provide you with all the information you will need. By choosing one of our bespoke wedding packages, Bronze, Gold, Silver or our ultimate Platinum package, your day will go without a hitch - we promise!

Your dog can be a guest of honour and simply stand with the wedding party during the ceremony, or your dog can have a specific role (a ring bearer of a flower girl). Whatever role you choose, Bark2school can help you achieve your dream.

Before we give your dog a 'starring' role we need to think about whether this will be an enjoyable experience for your dog. We ask you, would your dog be comfortable around your guests? Would your guests enjoy having your dog at your wedding? Will your dog be obedient and well behaved? There is no guarantee how your dog will behave on the day but with our help and in-depth knowledge and experience we can help you, your guests and your dog enjoy your wedding day together.

So Much to Consider before The Big Day...

There is so much to consider before your dog (s) can join you on your big day!

Below are a few of the points that need consideration - all of which may be incorporated in a wedding package of your choice - some areas of planning will need your input - and this will be discussed at the initial Wedding meeting

Let us consider some areas that need some careful thought and planning:

  • Consider your dog's personality - will your dog enjoy being amongst many people, will your dog enjoy the hustle and bustle of the wedding activities?
  • Inform your guest that you are having your best friend at your wedding - just to be polite and make sure they are comfortable with that - remember they will be wearing wonderful dresses and suits on the day!
  • Does the venue you have chosen or are considering allow dogs?
  • When considering your wedding favours - would you like a picture of your best friend?
  • Are you planning to dress your pooch in a tux? - Then do make sure it fits properly and doesn't create a discomfort for your dog. It is wiser and hugely beneficial to train your dog in advance to wear whatever it is you want him or her to wear on the day - far ahead of the actual wedding date.
  • Will your pooch being wearing a wedding flower - we have to ensure that the plant/flower is not toxic to your pet.
  • Food at the reception... if you are keeping your dog with you many foods can be poisonous to dogs, such as chocolate or grapes - we can advise and help you plan.
  • Your photographer and your memorable photographs: inform your photographer they your dog will be at the wedding as this will help them prepare for those unplanned moments! Need your dog to perform a trick of some sort - perhaps a kiss to the bride? We can help.
  • Apart from the actual wedding date, we have to consider getting your dog to the wedding event and then being taken back home.
  • Have you thought of your honeymoon?

Bark2School Can Help!

We can help! If needed, we will also holiday pet sit your beloved pooch whilst you are on your honeymoon. Your pet will stay with us in our own private home (not kennels).

He or she will receive all the home comforts, exercise, mental stimulation they need. They will be loved and cherished as one of our own family pets.

We have a range of wedding packages to suit your budget and to help you plan your very special day. They include the Bronze Package, The Silver Package and, the ultimate - the Platinum Package! Please contact us for more details.

All of our wedding packages include an initial '1-1 Wedding Meeting' to discuss your wedding plans and requirements for your BIG day.

Bark2school training policy is that we will keep up to date on our positive, effective training techniques.
We will not use harmful damaging equipment, such as prong, choke and electric collars in helping train your dog.
We do not use methods such as alpha roll, lead jerks, kicks and other punishing methods.
In our opinion - the use of aversive methods or equipment on fearful and aggressive dogs is detrimental and dangerous.
The ideas about 'dominance' in our opinion are completely disconnected from the sciences of ethology and animal learning.

Our full range of pet services includes:


  • Educational Puppy Socialisation courses.
  • Obedience puppy and dog training for young puppies, junior and adult dogs.
  • The Kennel Club Good Citizen Scheme training.
  • Clicker training.
  • Pre-puppy courses and information
  • Puppy Home Start.
  • Behavioural Consultations (dogs, cats and small animals).
  • 1-1 Training.

Owners' Testimonials - What People Say About Their Experiences with Bark2School


Thank you so much for what you did on the day to make sure that our dogs could be there on our special day. It would not have been the same without them there, they are family and we are so grateful for you looking after them on the morning of the wedding ensuring they were walked and cared for, delivered to the wedding and taken safely away after their duties and cared for by you until the following day. We really cannot thank you enough.
[ Michelle & Nick - Honey & Ruby - Sept 2016 ]


We found the course beneficial and it gave us different ideas for training. We will be recommending Ros and Bark2school to others :)
[ From Lauren, Josh and Lucca - Gosport - March 2016 ]


"Before we started training the idea of training our 10 week westie puppy was very daunting. After hearing about bark 2 school from a friend we couldn't wait to sign up! And it was the best thing we ever done. Both Ros and Emma are very patient trainers and helped me and my other half out so much in regards to mylos barking and his general training and we couldn't be more grateful. Thanks to their help we now have a very happy 6 month old puppy who has come on leaps and bounds from his first puppy socialisation course. And we are excited about the future training we are doing with him (also with bark2school!) I would recommend these two to anyone who needs a puppy trainer as I couldn't fault them in any way!"
[ Amy and Mylo - Gosport - March 2015 ]


"Bark2School are fantastic! We have just completed the 8 week Junior Course and would highly recommend it to anyone. It is a brilliant course delivered in a friendly, supportive and very positive way. We are first time dog owners and have benefitted immensely from the training. We learnt a lot about how to teach our puppy through positive reinforcement methods and have had some really pleasing results. Throughout the course, we felt very well supported both during the class and in between times. There were weekly handouts reinforcing what had been taught during that session and if we had any questions at any time, we were able to email Ros for advice. She was always happy to help and responded to any questions quickly. We are sad that the course is over but will certainly be booking on to further courses through Bark2School.

Thank you to Ros and Emma for all you have done for Koda. You really brought out the best in him and taught us how to do the same."
[ Sarah, Sophie, Simon and Koda - July 2014 ]


"Having never owned a dog before, on receiving our lovely little 8 week old cockapoo Mindy, the first thing we did was booked into Bark2school, which came highly recommended by a friend. We were not disappointed. We started with the Puppy home start from Emma. She was fantastic, gave us loads of advice and she had Mindy doing Sit, Paw and Down within minutes. We carried out her advice until classes started, which was a huge help.

Classes were great, both Ros and Emma were always friendly giving help and advice at every exercise. We are now VERY confident when out, especially letting of the lead in big fields knowing Mindy will return to us when called. Mindy is especially good at home. Totally toilet trained with the advice from Emma at puppy home start. All in all, we would recommend Bark2school 100%"
