Fun Holiday – Take Your Dog to Work Day

Studies have shown that bringing pets to work can increase productivity. So, on the third Sunday of June take your dog to work to celebrate Take Your Dog to Work Day.

Celebrated annually since 1999 on the first Friday after Father’s Day in the United States, the unofficial holiday was created by Pet Sitters International as a way to encourage dog adoption and to celebrate the love and joy dogs bring to the lives of their pet parents.

The week preceding this unofficial holiday is Take Your Pets to Work Week.

How to Celebrate?

  • Take your furry friend to work on this day. Make sure you let your co-workers know that you will be bringing your dog to work and clear it with anyone who may have allergies or other issues.
  • Have your company organize a visit to the local dog shelter, or, better yet, let the local dog shelter come to your workplace with dogs that are in need of a loving home – you never know, some of your co-workers may adopt a dog!

Did You Know…

… that in ancient China, royals would carry little dogs in their sleeves to keep warm?
