Here Comes the Bride… and Her Dog!

By Robin Hawn, Senior Brand Manager at PetSafe

Robin loves Buckley so much, she is including her in her wedding! Help her pick her dress below!

If you are like me, your dog is a huge part of your life. Buckley is literally my best friend (my apologies to my human friends, I hope you’ll understand). When my boyfriend Kristopher proposed marriage to me, I knew right away that I wanted Buckley in the wedding. Kris, who loves Buckley as much as I do, agreed Buckley could be a flower girl.

More and more couples are including their pooches in their weddings. In fact, Buckley will follow in the “paw prints” of dogs with parents like Gwen Stefani, Adam Sandler and many other celebrity dogs as she trots down the aisle. So maybe we are in vogue! The big question all along has been deciding what Buckley will wear. I may have thought more about her dress than my own! My mother comes of a long line of seamstresses, and she will be making Buckley’s dress.

Yet, I’m letting the PetSafe fans decide on the actual dress. The dress that is the most popular choice will be the one the Buckley wears on the big day. Don’t let the colors throw you; the dress will be made in a light blue or yellow fabric.

The PetSafe Downtown Dog Park will make a fantastic site for our nuptials and of course it’s dog friendly. Don’t have a dog park in your town?

Love the Glamour Girl!!!

I like Glamour Girl the best for a wedding!!

I love the frilly fido… don’t love the red but love the ruffles!

Definitely the Glam Girl unless you’re going with more of a fun-loving look to all your gowns. I think the Glam Girl will make her look very elegant and lady-like.

I love the idea of Buckley in the Belle of the Ball dress! Congrats.

Glamour Girl for sure!

Glamour Girl!  Congrats!

Frilly Fido!

Glamour Girl!!

Belle of the Ball!

It has to be Glamour Girl And of course Congratulations!!!!


Glamor Girl is an excellent design choice.  I love the netting and accented ribbon.  The dress could even be the same color as your dress with accent colors in the ribbon and net.  Congratulations on your wedding and may God bless the three of you.

frilly fido - love the ruffles

Glam Girl is the look for Buckley. She can rock that look! How sweet, yet sophisticated, she would look in her Glam Girl gorgeous get-up! I like Joy’s comment above, with the suggestion of using the same material as your dress with accent colors. Best of luck to you!

The dresses are all very nice. The the little pink one is adorable. My daughter has a Yorkie who loves to dress up and already has a new pink hat so this would match just right. Thanks for sharing you doggie dresses.

Definitely like Glamour Girl for a wedding.

Frilly Fido

I like the frilly fido dress the best, but I think Glamour Girl would look better on Buckley. Congratulations on your wedding!!!!!!!!!!!:) :) :)
