‘Bring your Dog to Work Day’ 2019 takes place today the 21st June. Yes, you have read correct, there is now a day when you can bring your pampered pooches into work with you! The annual event was established in the UK in 2014 and is for a good cause, raising money for animal welfare charities such as dog rescue charity ‘All Dogs Matter’ and’ International Charity Animals Asia’
Unfortunately, not every boss is keen on bringing your pet into work, we are very lucky at IMS as our Managing Director Neil Webb often brings in Buddy his lively, fun and loving border terrier. Buddy is part of the furniture and is loved by everyone in the office.
Studies have shown that being in the presence of pets at work can help to lower stress levels and increases positive social interactions. Dogs are usually much happier too if they can come to work because they do not like to be left at home for long periods of time.
Along with the benefits of bringing your pet to work, let’s admit that taking your dog into work and having cuddles is just plain fun! Here are some pictures of our little ray of sunshine ‘Buddy’ our office dog.
