Are you planning the ultimate surprise proposal for your partner? If you or your significant other is a pet parent, include them in on the surprise! After all, pets are part of the family too. Here are some of the sweetest ways to propose to your partner with help from your furry friends.
1. Fetch the Ring
Since playing fetch is natural for pups, incorporating your proposal into this game is a great idea in which your partner would least expect it. In this case, keep the engagement ring inside the box and secure it one of the toys your dog can bring. Casually start a quick game of fetch with your partner in range and bring to their attention the “odd object” your dog just found.
2. Paw Print Proposal Cards
Is your partner’s birthday coming up? You can create a thoughtful card and decorate it with your cat or dog’s paw print. Water-based, non-toxic paint and ink pads are safe for pets and easy to clean. Inside, you can include a sweet hand-written message of your marriage proposal.
3. Marry Us Collar Sign
This idea is growing in popularity for engagement photos with the pets and is a fun way to surprise your significant other. You can download a free “Marry Us” printable to cut and pin to your pet’s collar.
4. Dog Walk to Proposal Location
Is there a special place outdoors that you and your partner like to go? Go on a relaxing dog walk to your favorite spot. You can plan in advance a romantic picnic set up at the location for their arrival!
5. Puppy Proposal
Who will say no to an adorable puppy? If your partner has expressed interest in getting a dog, pop the question with a loving furry buddy. You can incorporate the proposal collar sign into this idea or a customized dog tag.
Whichever idea you choose, we’re sure your partner (and pet) will love it!
