Testimonials

Natalie & Sam with Darla

August 2018, Copdock Hall, Suffolk.

Amanda chaperoned our miniature Dachshund, Darla to our wedding. We were absolutely thrilled we could have her there and Amanda’s service was second to none. Darla stayed with Amanda the night before, attended our wedding as Ring Bearer and then went home for another night’s stay with her, before we collected Darla the following day. I can’t recommend this enough. It gave us peace of mind she was being looked after but we could also interact and spend time with her. If you love your fur baby as much as we do and you want them to share you special day with you then this is really a great service. Thank you Amanda from the Day family.

Vince & Steve with Harvey & Dexter

December 2018, Woodhall Manor

Steve and I booked our wedding at the fantastic Woodhall Manor which met all our needs but were disappointed when the registrar said we wouldn’t be able to have our two dogs present at the actual ceremony. We had resigned ourselves to the fact that they were going to have to go into kennels and miss the day. This broke our hearts and it was a godsend when we saw Amanda’s stand at one of the open days. Everything just fell into place. Amanda’s service was second to none. We met with her and discussed our wishes. She arranged to take the boys out for an afternoon to get to know them. This was followed by a day spent with her for further bonding. We dropped the boys off on the morning of the wedding fully confident they would be just fine. As arranged Amanda and her assistant arrived at the venue in good time to allow some informal photos before the ceremony. Unfortunately we had a very wet day but the boys were just fine sitting with Amanda until the photographer called for them. I think they enjoyed almost being centre stage! We could not have asked for a better service and anyone more devoted to dogs than Amanda and would have no hesitation in recommending her services to anybody. 



Ben & Amy with Paige & Bella

December 2018, Woodhall Manor

We had just about given up on the idea of having our dogs in some of our wedding photos when we came across the best thing ever - Amanda's chaperone service advertised online! It was the perfect solution! Our little dogs loved staying with her & it was great that they had a taster day beforehand so they got to know her. She was amazingly patient at the wedding whilst the dogs waited for their photo opportunity! Amanda was so professional, arrived on time & was so friendly. I would highly recommend Amanda to anyone who wants their dogs at their wedding without the stress!

Mellissa & David with Dexter

December 2018, Woodhall Manor

Amanda chaperoned my little man to my wedding. Prior to our big day Dexter spent time getting to know Amanda so once the day arrived he couldn't wait to have a sleep over! Amanda gave us a lot of confidence that Dexter would be well looked after and we loved the fact that she wanted to know so much information ahead of agreeing to have him. We would completely trust and recommend this service to anyone worries about what to do with their beloved dog.

Jem & Simon with Finley

December 2018, Woodhall Manor 

When we started planning our wedding we were wondering what to do about our dog Finley - by chance we saw Amanda's stand at a wedding fair and met her soon after. She was warm, friendly and really interested in our day but more importantly in Finley! We'd originally been looking for someone to board him but Amanda's wedding chaperone service meant he could be part of our day which was lovely! She arranged for him to spend a couple of taster days with her before the wedding and on the big day she arranged for Finley to be at our venue so that he could be in the photos. Finley was well looked after, happy and (thankfully!) tired out by the time we picked him up earlier today. We will certainly be letting Finley stay with Amanda again (if she will have him) and we would have no hesitation in recommending her. 


Tracey & Paul with Ralf

December 2018, Woodhall Manor  

Amanda chaperoned my pug Ralf at our wedding 24-09-2017. She was amazing and I had total faith in her to look after my boy. The whole service from start to finish was next to none. Before and after the wedding. It totally took the pressure off us worrying about him being looked after. I so wanted him at our wedding and I bumped into Amanda at one of the wedding fayres and thought what a amazing idea to have Ralf chaperoned. The day was amazing and thanks to Amanda having Ralf there was the icing on the cake. Thank you Amanda keep up the good work. Very highly recommended service!


Emily & Mike with Poppy

September 2018, Woodhall Manor   

We met Amanda at a wedding fair in the build up to our wedding and raved about the idea of having our much lived Border Terrier Poppy with us on our wedding day. Amanda and Emma were amazing from the get go, they arranged a get together so they could meet Poppy and help her feel more comfortable with them. Our kennels let us down for the night of the wedding and while I was panicking Amanda suggested that we arrange for Poppy to stay with her and that her and Emma would coordinate themselves to fit around us. They went so far above and beyond I would have ever asked and they really understood why it meant so much for us to have Poppy with us on our big day. Emma was so professional on the day and kept Poppy calm in amongst all the mayhem, some of my guests were asking if she was a friend rather than a company as Poppy seemed so happy with her. If you are thinking about using a doggy chaperone/home boarding I can not recommend Amanda’s Ark enough.
