Q. We want our beloved dog to be involved in our wedding, but we're not sure how to transport him or who will care for him on the day. Do you have any suggestions?

A. Catherine Smith says: Here at Thea's Lakeland Walks, we safely transport dogs to ceremonies, photographs and accommodation, if overnight boarding isn't required. There are lots of options available, think about if you want your furry companion to be part of the bridal or grooms party? Is he or she going to be a ring bearer? Do you need a floral collar for the photographs? Lots of companies offer full daycare, half daycare and overnight boarding. Check if they have a licence, this will give you peace of mind that your pet is going to be well cared for. It's also worth checking if they are trained in first aid. We are two of only 10 people in the North West with an advanced first aid qualification.
