Based at a farm in Bagnall, in the Staffordshire Moorlands, the business is run by an experienced professional who has many years in the dog industry.
Penny Dabell offers dog grooming, microchipping, canine first aid courses and ultrasound.
She has now also launched Penelope’s Pet Chaperone, a bespoke service for people who want their pet dog to play a part in their wedding.
After an initial consultation, Penny can offer the bride and groom-to-be, a range of services including grooming the dog for wedding photos, collecting the pet and transporting it to the venue and then chaperoning the pet for a few hours or all day if required.
At the end of the wedding day, Penny can return the dog to the couple’s home, pet care or kennels. Alternatively, she can offer a ‘let out service’ if pets aren’t attending the wedding.
Finally she can arrange bespoke wedding outfits or collars for pets to link in with the theme of the wedding.
Wedding packages are a natural progression for Penny’s business as she already provides a pet taxi service to take dogs to the salon or vet if their owner can’t drive, even out of hours. She is fully insured and dogs are transported in a safe and air conditioned van.
Penny said: “I have a passion for taking care of dogs of all shapes and sizes. I have been working with dogs for many years and have my own Leonbergers who I show and breed.
“As a fully qualified dog groomer, I offer anything from a simple wash-and-dry to a full groom to keep your pooch looking its best.
“I have more than 20 years of experience, including running my own boarding kennels for 12 years, and offer a training course for canine first responders which is in-depth first aid for dogs.
Many couples would like to have their fur baby at their wedding for some and not all of the day. How amazing would it be if your beloved canine friend could be in some of the photographs? Our dogs are part of our family so why shouldn’t they be sharing our special day?
Enjoy your day.
Let us take care of your dog.
It sounds idyllic to include man's best friend during your matrimonial celebrations, the problem is, how is that going to work? How will the dog be in the right place at the right time and not be a nuisance? How is your furry friend going to travel to the venue safely? Who can look after the dog, handle him or her on the day especially when everyone is in their best clothes? Who is going to ensure that your dear pal is clean, groomed, styled and photo-ready? Who is going to take your dog away from the party when it's time for him/her to go? Who could take care of your dog while you continue to party on into the night and possibly even board them during your honeymoon too? What if you are multi-dog family, would that be possible to? The answer is YES. We can take care of all of this for you!
