Asking the love of your life to marry you is an exciting (yet sometimes intimidating!) question. Once you decide to propose, it’s important to consider how you’ll go about doing so!
After all, this should be a memorable and romantic gesture — shouldn’t it be something your partner will remember forever?
If you are struggling to come up with the right proposal idea, but you know your other half loves animals, consider involving your furry friend in the process!
Check out a few of these pet proposal ideas to give you some inspiration…
Pet Proposal Ideas
1. The Four-Legged Ring Bearer
Is your pet well trained? Consider tying the ring to your dog or cat’s collar! And if you’re worried about the ring getting lost, you can try ring boxes, pillows or pouches to hold the ring in place.
2. The Puppy Proposal
Have you been talking about adopting a new puppy? Giving your soon-to-be-spouse a dog and a ring on the same day is a sure-fire way to melt their heart! How can anyone say anything but a definitive “YES!” to a puppy proposal?
3. Have Your Pets Ask For You
Another great idea is to order a new collar or tag that pops the question so you don’t have to! Many places allow you to create a custom order, which you can engrave with, “Will you marry me?” It’s also something that the love of your life likely won’t expect!
4. Dress Up
If your pet doesn’t mind wearing new things, you might consider dressing them up with a bowtie and placing the ring box next to them! This is a fun idea for an at-home proposal when your partner isn’t looking. Then you can call them into the room for a little surprise!
5. Bonus Ideas: Involve Other Animals!
Looking for a few extra options to consider? Take a look at these examples of how you can involve other animals outside of your home!
– Use a trained owl to deliver a special package
– Sign up for a behind the scenes tour at your local zoo or aquarium
– Use your home’s fish tank to hold the ring in a treasure chest
