Does Your Company Celebrate Take Your Dog to Work Day?

Posted: June 23, 2017 in Uncategorized

Take Your Dog to Work Day is Friday, June 23. Pet Sitters International, the event creator, offers a free guide to celebrating at work — including how to convince your boss.

“Employers — particularly those who have never allowed dogs at work before — may be apprehensive, so explain the benefits,” said Beth Stultz, national spokesperson for TYDTW Day. “Studies have shown that dogs in the workplace increases productivity and creativity. Surveys also indicate that employees credit dogs in the workplace for decreased absenteeism and improved co-worker relationships and teamwork.”

Here are some ideas to get you started, courtesy of PSI, on 2018’s TYDTW Day:

  • Share your idea and the free guide with your boss or human resources: petsit.com/downloadyour-free-toolkit
  • Choose an event coordinator. You might need a committee, or you might simply appoint one staff member as lead organizer.
  • Decide how to celebrate. Some companies simply allow employees to bring their dogs to work. Others host elaborate celebrations.
