Pets are part of the family – there’s no denying it. In fact, 22% of the nation were happy to declare that they value their dogs over their mother-in-law in a recent poll. Ouch. It’s no surprise then that more and more of us are wanting our pets to be at our wedding. Which is where Violet comes in. She runs Findlay’s Pet Care, and offers a unique service that enables pooches to be part of the big day. We joined her for a walk around Wandsworth Common, to find out a bit more about what she does…
Violet is bubbly, caring and a natural with animals. As we walk and chat she’s constantly playing with Alfie – a gorgeous cocker spaniel – and he clearly feels extremely comfortable and happy in her company. She’s a dog owner herself, and decided to quit her job nearly a year ago and dedicate her time to Findlay’s Pet Care. She’s already built up a loyal list of clients, and she looks after lots of lovely doggies – whether it’s for a quick run around at lunch, looking after a four-legged friend while their owners are on holiday, or providing a pet with much-needed ongoing care. I’m out of breath talking to her trying to keep up with her fast pace – you can be sure that your dog will get a proper walk with Violet! She picks up all pooches by foot rather than car or van, so they get the maximum amount of fresh air and exercise.
But it’s not just dog walking service she offers, Violet has recently started a wedding Chaperone service. She will make sure that your pooch is taken care and enjoying the celebrations while you enjoy your special day. It’s a bespoke service, which includes taking your dog to your Groomers of choice for some primping and pampering before the wedding, collecting your pooch on the day of the wedding, walking, playing and feeding during the wedding ceremony and reception, ensuring your pet is happy and relaxed for photographs or ring bearing, dropping your pet home at the end of the day – and much more! Violet operates in and around Greater London, enquire for a bespoke quote or to book a consultation to discuss requirements for your special day.
