If you’ve been dreaming of the day your pooch can marry his or her sweetheart, we’re happy to announce that the wait is finally over.Dogs of all breeds and ages can now officially tie the knot at the Rooftop Film Club in Peckham.
This Sunday (18 August), the venue is offering pooches the chance to win a wedding of their very own – complete with a ‘minister’, wedding cake and champagne (the dog-friendly pawsecco kind).What’s more, the lucky couple will also be given VIP seats for a screening of the Queen’s Corgi, which is playing that same night.
‘For dogs who want to take their partners’ paw in marriage, we’re thrilled to be the first rooftop venue in London to allow dogs to get hitched,’ said a spokesperson from Rooftop Film Club.
‘This year, it’s all about romance and that doesn’t mean just for people.
‘We want to spread the puppy love and encourage people to bring their pooches to the best spot for a wooftop wedding by offering the ultimate prize to really celebrate our furry friends.’
Socialize your pet. This is especially important for puppies. Again – behavior problems are the number one reason dogs don’t stay with their families and don’t get adopted by new families. Lack of proper socialization can result in inappropriate fears, aggressive behavior, general timidity, and a host of other behavior problems that are difficult to extinguish once a dog is mature.
We asked the organisers whether they believe the use of a ‘minister’ for a dog wedding cheapens the idea of a religious wedding
The event will be officiated by a celebrant and so, the wedding ceremony itself is not religious.
A Rooftop Film Club spokesperson: ‘At Rooftop Film Club, we are all about romance in all its forms, and we strongly believe that our four legged friends deserve puppy love as much as anyone else.
‘We want to provide dogs and their owners the chance to have their happy day. After all, love is love.’
Fancy winning your pooch a wedding?
To be in with a chance to win, to the organisers with a reason why these particular pooches deserve a special day of their own.We can’t help but wonder if they’ll play ‘Puppy Love’ for the first song.
