National Take Your Dog to Work Day, is celebrated annually on the Friday following Father’s Day and this year it will be on June 24th.


What is “National Take Your Dog To Work Day”?

National Take Your Dog to Work Day began in 1999 as a way to celebrate companion dogs and to encourage adoptions. Leaving our four-legged pups behind as we head to the office, can be rough on them, okay, uhhhh, us, so, a national day that encourages us to bring them to the office? Consider us in!

Dogs are pure love so it’s pretty obvious they will make even the most mundane meetings magical. So, as you run out the door, don’t forget your laptop, as well as these office essentials for your furry pal:

 

 

 

Toppl® Treat Toy

If you bring one thing (besides your dog) to the office, make it a Toppl. The ultimate, dog-occupied, your dog will be so busy toiling at their Toppl they won’t even notice you working on your TPS report.

While bringing your dog to work is fun, it’s also a privilege and isn’t right for every dog. Here are some things to consider before you bring your dog to work!

  • Check with your HR department for vaccinations policies.

  • Review your schedule. If your day is filled with meetings, it might not be the day to bring your pup in.

  • Can your dog be quiet? Will they be able to go through a day without whining, crying, barking or growling?

  • Check in with your colleagues. Do they have allergies? Are they fearful of dogs?

  • Find out where the canine-friendly zones are. Are pets allowed everywhere? Even in break rooms and meeting rooms.

  • Ensure you have time built into your day to take your dog outside to relieve themselves and for some exercise breaks.
