Pets in Ceremonies: Recommendation Coastal Critter Sitters

First, a HUGE THANKS to Coast to Country for the live interview today about the use of Pets in Ceremonies. It is great to feature the benefits of doing this so if you want to watch the interview and missed it, don’t worry,  I will post the link here very soon!

As promised during the interview, here is my recommended company for helping you if you are considering pets in ceremonies / dog in your ceremony.

If you are considering any pets in ceremonies, a company that comes on very high recommendation in the South West is Coastal Critter Sitters.

Pets in Ceremonies with Joanne Armstrong Marriage Celebrant

Meredith Jones, the operator and owner of the business, and I became fast friends very soon after I moved to Margaret River. We met through a shared passion for dogs and I was inspired by all that I learned through her. Training and discipline as well as food, shelter and love are paramount in keeping any pooch happy.

Soon after getting a pup of my own, I made sure that Ella learned the tricks of the trade and could come with me everywhere I went – even to ceremonies.

Many good tips were learned thanks to Meredith!
