FormalDogsGallery23Accompanying your dog to your special day! The original concept behind Formal Dogs.   For people who wish to have their dog at their wedding.

Formal Dogs is proud to be the premier wedding service where a professional trainer can be as involved as you desire when it comes to having your dog as part of your very special day.

Formal Dogs carries insurance for your dog on the day of your wedding.
