Take Your Dog to Work Day began in 1999 to celebrate the human-canine bond and to promote animal adoption. Today, thousands of businesses across the country welcome their employees’ furry friends for a fun (and hopefully productive!) day.
Participating businesses can register with Pet Sitters International (who founded the event) and download a Participant Action Pack, which contains a sample “dogs at work” policy and tips for planning the event, along with other resources to ensure that the day is a success.
If you are interested in participating, please read this great article “10 Things to Know for Take Your Dog to Work Day” for some great advice for a successful Take Your Dog to Work Day!
Do your pets come to work with you? If so, we’d love to hear about it! Post a picture on our Facebook page, and tell us how your pet handles a day at the office.
