Have You Ever Taken Your Dog Into Work?
We would love to know your stories about when you took your dog into work.
Send us your photos on Twitter and Facebook.
Storm has been into my office a couple of times. I took him in when he was a lot younger, and remember him jumper all over my colleagues. He even managed to persuade the boss to give him a biscuit.
Health Benefits of Bring Your Dog To Work Day
I bet you never knew there were Health Benefits of taking your dog to work, here are just a few:
Bring Your Dog To Work Day can reduce stress – Playing with or stroking a pet releases oxytocin which can reduce the production of the Stress Hormone cortisol. Have a look at this Study
They can keep you active – Dog friendly offices allow you to exercise your dog during the day. Meaning you will get that well needed breather, as well as giving your dog the regular exercise he/she needs
They can improve job satisfaction – This Study shows people who could take their pets to work had more job satisfaction and were happier in their jobs.
I would love to be able to take Storm to work every day with me!
