Thinking of popping the question and want your canine bud to play a part? Great idea! Here are some dog proposal ideas to help you come up with some fun ways to incorporate your dog into a proposal.

2. Personalized Dog Tag

Another option is to order a customized proposal dog tag for your four-legged pal to wear. Ask your significant other to take a peek at their new tag, and watch their face light up!

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).

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:
