Petco has some quick and easy options for creating custom dog tags, if you’re interested in this idea.
3. Have Your Dog Deliver a Very Special Letter
Write your fiancee-to-be a romantic and touching love letter, then have your pooch play mail man and deliver the note.
4. Get Your Canine to Wear a Sign
Create a custom sign for your dog to wear. Then tell you significant others to meet you and the pooch somewhere (whether at home or at the local dog park).
If you like this photo (and who doesn’t?), consider checking out this seller on Etsy, where they can make you a custom sign just like this one.
5. Teach Your Dog to Fetch Your Ring
This one requires some training if your dog doesn’t know how to fetch, and plenty of practice of course!
Tell your significant other that your dog has a new trick to show off. When your dog runs off and comes back with a special box, your significant other will be super surprised!
6. Use a Special Custom Doggie Ring Bearer Collar
With more couples wanting to make their pooch part of their engagement, more unique proposal and wedding dog collars are becoming available that are custom designed for four-legged ring bearers.
Here are a few ones to consider:
This gorgeous lace dog collar comes from a highly rated Etsy seller, who also sells tons of other beautiful dog collars for engagements, weddings, or just general fanciness. Definitely check out their amazing selection on Etsy!
You could also go with a classic dog collar with custom text. This clean and elegant look is nice because your significant other won’t suspect a thing, until they read the engraving.
You can also go with a pillow collar, which you can easily attach an engagement ring to.
7. Color Them Surprised!
Looking for a louder gesture of love? Consider giving your dog a one-of-a-kind design with Pet Paint (totally safe, temporary, and non-toxic).
