We’ve been bringing our dogs to work for 10 years!

Every year, thousands of Americans take their dogs into the office as part of National Take Your Dog to Work Day, created by Pet Sitters International ten years ago!

imageTYDTWD is an annual event designed to celebrate dogs as companions, encourage employers to experience the value of pets in their workplace, and encourage pet adoptions from shelters, humane societies and rescue groups.

According to the Pet Sitters website, a  2006 APPMA [American Pet Products Manufacturers Association] Survey showed that millions of employees feel that pets in the workplace can lead to a more creative environment, decreased absenteeism, improved productivity and can help co-workers get along better, yet only about one in five companies allow pets in the workplace. 

Take this poll here and tell us if your company participates in Take Your Dog To Work Day!
