wedding dogYour wedding day is one of the greatest days ever. You want all of the most important people in your life to be there with you. So why shouldn’t your pets be there, too?

Weddings in Charleston can be very pet-friendly, so there are countless ways you can have your pet be part of your special day. Here are a few fun ideas for ways you can incorporate your pet in your wedding:

  • Bring your dog to the cocktail hour for laughs and fun
  • Have your pets pose with you for some formal photos at the wedding or bridal photo shoot
  • Ask a special guest to walk your pet down the aisle
  • Your pet can be the ring bearer – just tie the rings to their collar
  • Let your pet join you at the reception. They may sleep after the big day or join in on the dancing!

Pets can be a wonderful addition to your wedding – after all, they are part of your new family, too! If you need someone to assist you with your pets, give Charleston Dog Walker a call at 843-580-2212. We offer pet concierge services to wedding couples, where we will shuttle pets to and from venues, chaperon them during the events, and assist in any way you need us. Don’t forget the honeymoon, either! We’d be happy to visit your pets when you head out for your honeymoon getaway to give them all the love they deserve until you return home.


Curious Pet of the Month: Chloe

November 12, 2014 | Curious Pet of the Month, Cutest Pets

Chloe 2Meet Chloe – a tiny bundle of energy and happiness!  Chloe is always as happy as can be when it’s time for her walk.  She bounces all around and can hardly wait to run around outside.  It seems she believes that she is a race horse, because she takes off as soon as that door opens and hardly slows down at all until you make it back inside!  Chloe is excellent at sniffing and thinks squirrels are quite funny.  She also has a hilarious ritual of coming back inside and running to the living room to roll on her back for a few minutes.  Chloe is a big goof ball and absolutely adorable!


How To Take Amazing Pictures of Your Dog

October 8, 2014 | Cutest Pets, Helpful Tips

BetterPhotos_hdI’m obsessed with taking pictures of my (adorable) dog.  Sadly, I’m not the best photographer.  If you can relate, I’ve dug up a great list of tips on how to take way better photos of your pup.  Here are the top tips, but read the full article here to get all of the great bits of advice.

  1. Follow the light.  Usually this means your dog should be facing a window.
  2. Models like to eat. Especially when your model is a dog! Use high reward treats and reward positive behavior like sitting still.
  3. Make some noise. Don’t you love that little head tilt? Make a funny sound to try and get your pup’s attention, but use this trick sparingly or it will get old.
  4. Shoot fast and furious. The beauty of digital – take a million pictures and you are bound to get one that’s in focus. Make sure to use a real camera so you can shoot quickly.
  5. Change your view. Lay on the ground and look up at your dog, or switch up the perspective to get a more creative shot.
  6. Use props.  If you are looking for an extra cute photo, use some big sunglasses, or tie a balloon to your dog’s collar.
  7. Pick a meaningful spot. Capture a moment in your dog’s favorite chair, or at her favorite park. This will help your dog be relaxed and you’ll have a great memory of that special spot!
  8. Get up close and personal. Don’t forget to do the detail shots! Shoot up close photos of your pup’s nose or paw – all of the little details that make up your best buddy.
  9. Stage your shot.  De-clutter the background and straighten things up.  You can even bring in props like colorful pillows, a sheepskin rug or fresh flowers to create a stylish and finished looking shot.
  10. It’s peanut butter time! If all else fails, peanut butter always results in some funny pictures. Just make sure to ration the amount so your pup doesn’t end up with a belly ache!

Hopefully this tips will do the trick and you’ll have tons of new photos to hang on your walls!
