Working with Ruth at Formal Dogs was a wonderful experience. She took such good care of our senior Jack Russell Alfie at our wedding, putting his needs first and comforting him when he was overwhelmed. We knew that he was in very capable hands! She was easy to communicate with and had expert advice to share about how to make the event easier for Alfie. We couldn’t be more grateful!

Ruth was absolutely amazing both on and leading up to our wedding. She looked after our overly excitable chihuahua and kept him happy and entertained until he calmly and adorably walked down the aisle and posed for photos. Formal Dogs is highly recommended for anyone wanting their dog at their wedding!

Ruth at Formal Dogs is lovely and so very helpful. Without her we would never have had our fur kids at our wedding. Right from the start Ruth was there to help. It was wonderful knowing our kids were in safe, capable and trustworthy hands. Thank you Ruth for making our day that much more extra special.

Ruth from formal dogs is so kind and caring, she did the most amazing job with our dog Beefy (our ring bearer). Our day was truly perfect because of your amazing service and love for what you do. Thank you Ruth!

Formal dogs are amazing and they are the reason that our golden retrievers (effectively our children) got to be at the wedding and walk down the aisle to deliver the rings. The boys were fed, looked after and taken around, to and from the venue. We tested them completely with our pups and so should anyone else on Melbourne who needs a responsible supplier to help make their day incredible.

Ruth is amazing with the dogs. One dog is very timid with new people but he was very realxed with Ruth.  Any questions we had were answered and advice was offered when needed. We highly recommend Ruth for anyone wanting their dogs involved in their wedding. Thank You Ruth! From the Cookes Family.

Ruth was wonderful. It was important for us to have our dogs at our wedding and Ruth made that possible. Ruth's care for our dogs was wonderful and we could enjoy our reception knowing that Ruth had taken our dogs home, and made sure they were safe and sound

Formal dogs were amazing. We were completely confident with the way our dogs were cared for on our special day and the dogs were the highlight of the ceremony for our guests. It was wonderful having our fur babies as a part of our ceremony and photos. Thanks to Ruth for being so amazing.

Highly recommend. Made our wedding day extra special and our dog was extra happy to be included (and possibly came back better behaved !). Excellent all round service, and Ruth was lovely and made it all so simple and stress free for all.
