I'm Emily, Veterinary nurse and owner of I Do Paws. Growing up an avid animal lover, I always knew I wanted to work with animals.
After graduating from Adelaide Uni, I decided to pursue my passion and began my journey as a vet nurse. Having worked in general practice for 7 years and running puppy preschools, I decided to branch out and began working at a veterinary specialist clinic, where I reside today in the Ophthalmology unit.
I love my work, I love weddings and I adore running my business...so you could really say I have the best of both worlds!
At home, I have an Aussie Shepherd, 2 cats, an amazing husband and our newest addition, Peggy, our baby daughter. We can often be found at the river, playing football, having a hit of golf or traveling to amazing ski destinations.
The Business Story
In 2016, My husband Ryan and I got married at Alru Farm in the Adelaide Hills. Our one wish was to have our fur baby Ace as the 'dog of honour'.
We found it to be a logistical nightmare to organise his attendance with and felt horrible asking a friend to pick up after him and drive him home after the ceremony. I was surprised that this service didn't already exist, but realised, as a vet nurse, I was the best person for the job.
After two hugely successful wedding seasons in Adelaide, we opened up a Melbourne branch in 2019. With my sister Kayla as the Vic branch manager, we travel throughout Victoria & South Australia to be your dogs wedding date. Now, we offer the most reliable and capable Pet Chaperone service across these two states.
