National Bring Your Dog to Work Day

National Bring your Dog to Work Day

As you know, the Buddies office is super dog friendly, and on Friday 22nd June, we want to encourage other businesses to take part in ‘Bring Your Dog to Work Day’.

This is the UK’s fifth official ‘Bring Your Dog to Work Day’, founded and organised by ethical dog grooming product company HOWND. On Friday 22nd June 2018, businesses from across the UK will welcome their dog loving employees into the workplace along with their four-legged companions to raise money for charity.

Scientific studies have concluded that the presence of pets can substantially reduce a person’s stress level in the workplace. Increased job satisfaction, team co-operation and morale have all been reported in employees that spend the workday with their pets. In fact, a study published by the International Journal of Workplace Health Management (2010) concluded that the presence of dogs in the work place even had a positive effect on those employees who didn’t have a dog of their own.

Marianne, Managing Director here at Buddies says, ‘Having dogs in the office puts a smile on everyone’s face. All the staff here at Buddies are animal lovers and being able to bring your dog to work not only boosts moral, but also means more socialisation for the dogs and less stress for staff needing to arrange doggy daycare.’

‘We are proud to support national ‘Bring Your Dog to Work Day’ which raises valuable funds for ‘All Dogs Matter’ and other deserving dog charities throughout the UK.’

All Dogs Matter is a charity that rescues and rehomes more than 300 dogs a year in London, Norfolk and the surrounding areas. ‘All Dogs Matter’ seek to pair each dog with the best possible new owner, ensuring that it will be safe, cared for and loved for the rest of its life.

We will be hosting a puppy party for our office dogs on Friday 22nd June, with party hats, balloons and dog friendly party snacks. We will also be sharing updates throughout the day across our social media pages.

If you are bringing your dog to work, we would love to see. Use the hashtags #BuddiesPuppyParty and #BringYourDogToWorkDay.
