Love is in the air! If you find yourself planning to pop the question to your special someone this Valentine’s Day, be sure to include your dog for a fun and furry experience. Here are some tips to help coordinate with your four-legged best friend.
What better to way to start your life together than by adding a member to your family! Gifting a puppy during your proposal is a sweet way to say, “I’m in.” Plus, your newfound fiancé will think of your proposal whenever they spend time with the dog. Talk about a gift that lives on.
If this is part of your plan, be prepared. Have you talked about getting a puppy together? Have you decided as a team what kind or breed would best suit your lifestyle? Be sure that you’ve covered all of these things and that a puppy will be a welcomed surprise. Take it the extra mile and pick up all the puppy essentials too, including a leash, crate, food, toys, bowls, and WINPRO Immunity so that you two can focus on celebrating.
If you two are already proud pet parents, let your dog be the star of the show. This is a popular and simple way of proposing with a pup. Either make or purchase a fun premade sign or charm – places like Etsy are a great place for these – to hang around your dog’s neck when popping the question.
Here are some ideas:
Will you marry me?
Will you marry my dad/mom?
My humans are getting married!
Please say yes!
I do too!
I loved her/him first!
If you want to take a step up from the sign, try a trick! Utilizing a new trick is a fun angle to propose from and shows that you put a lot of thought and effort into your proposal. Teach your dog some sort of trick with the ring. This could be fetching the box, balancing the ring on your dog’s nose, or something totally unique to your dog’s skillsets. When the time comes, you can simply say “watch what Buddy and I have been working on.” They will never see it coming.
Proposing is one of those moments you’ll remember for the rest of your life, so make it your own. Mix and match these tips to best suit you, your four-legged friend, and your soon-to-be fiancé. If the pup is present, they’re bound to say YES.
