Everything to Love About Take Your Dog to Work Day

Everything to Love About Take Your Dog to Work Day

Since 1999, dogs have taken their turn commuting to offices around the country to take part in Take Your Dog to Work Day. Originally intended to encourage people to adopt dogs from shelters and humane societies, this tradition happening on June 25 comes with multiple benefits and rewards.

Dogs Improve Employee Morale

Furry workmates are ideal for easing stress and tension in a fast-paced office. Petting a tail-wagging ball of fluff or engaging in a spontaneous round of fetch can promote the flow of feel-good hormones that help improve productivity. It's no accident that companies appearing on lists of the most desirable places to work are frequently dog-friendly.

Dogs Help Prevent Sluggishness

Office workers often hear that taking walks or leaving their desks is essential for improving blood flow, preventing muscle tension, and maintaining focus. Still, most people continue to work through the day without taking a break. Having a dog in the office that needs walking several times per day will help avoid sedentary habits that lead to burnout and improve stamina, resulting in fewer sick days. 

Dogs Benefit from a Change of Scenery

There is no place your pup would rather be than by your side. Your dog may not be pining for you while you are at work, but going to work with you, spending time with you, and seeing new faces is a treat that will not go unnoticed.

Dogs Encourage Team Bonding

Few things are as helpful for breaking the ice with a remote officemate as a greeting from a furry visitor. Some co-workers have difficulty bonding, but those who feel at ease with each other are most likely to work well together. A friendly dog is just the thing to help build rapport among office staff members.

Dogs At Work Help Companies Attract and Retain Talent

Employers who create work environments that support their employees' interests and obligations can attract and retain top talent. As dogs continue to enjoy the status of prominent family members, employers who acknowledge this have an advantage over those who do not. Employers with the vision to foster work-life balance understand that being a dog parent comes with occasional scheduling conflicts that they can help eliminate by allowing dogs at work.  

Dogs Love Take Your Dog to Work Day

Your dog will be more than happy to become your new office mate during Take Your Dog to Work Day or any time it can join you. For more suggestions about how to bond with your best friend, contact the veterinary professionals at Pet Hospitals of Hawaii.
