We have owned The Howliday Inn for around 3 years now and have grown to 7-daycare and boarding branches as well as having walkers and house sitter based across Thanet and a branch in Sandwich and Canterbury as well. A friend invited us along to advertise our boarding at a wedding fair for while people were on honeymoon or for care while they got married and a large number of people asked if we would be able to bring their pets to their wedding. We decided to launch as a new company for a clear brand identity.
The most popular pet people have at their wedding is definitely dogs but we are willing to accommodate any pet as long as the welfare of the pet is well-considered and isn't going to affect them. Kat has a long of experience with horses and Kerry has experience with reptiles so this is something we can look at for owners.
Yes, we meet the pet first. We offer a free consultation, so your pet can spend some time getting to know us to make sure they will be happy at the event. It also means the owners have a chance to ask us any questions and we can discuss our packages or owners can put together their own package.
We offer a wide range of package that starts from little as £50 for people who just want their pets their for photos right to up a full day package including training, grooming and boarding. Customers can also tailor-make their own package and we will always look to implement the owners own ideas and where possible we will endeavour to include this in their special day. Of course, the welfare of the pet is our top priority so if we feel this wouldn't be suitable we will come up with another plan.
We would ask you to supply the food for your pet purely as we wouldn't want to change their food and risk upsetting their tummy. We can collect the food along with the pet so owners don't need to worry about taking it with them themselves. We provide treats with the owner's consent. Furry tail Weddings have extensive forms to make sure we understand all your pets needs which include special dietary requirements and what they eat normally.
We have a team of experienced and insured staff we can call upon if we have a number of pets you would like to include so no real limit providing the dogs are happy to be around each other.
We do have a qualified groomer so your dog can look smart and smell fresh
We can provide a range of items from flower leads, bow ties etc and of course people can supply their own. We, of course, wouldn't want to stress an animal out though so if the pet isn't happy with any of the items it's not worth causing them stress. We can offer some training sessions with our qualified trainer to get them used to new items and even do some training so they can complete any special tasks like being a ring bearer.
We are based in Thanet, Kent but cover, Kent, Essex and London as standard. Other areas are considered on request. We are happy to travel further if we have the availability.
