Have you always wished, dreamed and hoped that someday you'd be able to bring your dog to work with you?
Well, now you can.
We're delighted to announce to you that June 23 is officially Bring Your Dog to Work Day!
As part of their exciting new campaign to make Ireland more dog-friendly, Dogs Trust , is celebrating ‘Bring Your Dog to Work Day’ and is calling for workplaces around Ireland to celebrate with them.
They're even offering a limited number of goodie bags to workplaces welcoming dogs to their premises on June 23, and will even be calling into some of the some of the dog-friendly workplaces on the day with some tasty treats for canines and humans alike.
Sarah Lynch, Campaigns Manager at Dogs Trust mentioned:
"We are delighted to be celebrating Bring Your Dog to Work Day again this year. This is another exciting initiative in our wider Dog Friendly Ireland campaign, where we highlight the small but effective changes that can be made in many different aspects of public life, in an effort to make Ireland the best country in the world for dogs and their humans."
Suzie Carley, Executive Director Dogs Trust said:
"Studies have found that bringing pet dogs to work can reduce stress and make the job more satisfying. Stroking a dog is proven to elevate the production of happy hormones, serotonin and dopamine, which in turn lowers blood pressure and reduces stress."
"With over 40% of all Irish households owning a pet dog, Dogs Trust is encouraging organisations to join this fun initiative and allow dogs into workplaces, which we hope will boost morale, create a more satisfied and productive workforce and help make Ireland the best country in the world to be a dog."
So, what are you waiting for?
Pack up some dog treats and get ready for a fantastically canine day at work!
