Next Friday June 27th is Bring Your Dog to Work Day.

Having a dog in the room can make human colleagues more cooperative, reduce stress, increase job satisfaction and productivity.

When adopting a dog or any animal from the GSPCA we often ask how many hours potential owners may be at work.  Perhaps the question should actually be - are you able to take your dog to work?

Discussing the benefits of taking a dog to work might just result in a match with a dog we have in for homing.

We rehome hundreds of pets every year, with an average 30 dogs in need of a forever home in Guernsey each year we do have canines suitable for a variety of homes.

Lorna Prince Animal Welfare Manager said "We rehome and help dozens of dogs every month through the Shelter and the dog training classes we run at the GSPCA, and it is really nice to hear of those owners that can take their dogs to work."

"Not every dog owner has the right type of work place to take their dog or dogs to work, but why not ask your boss and see what they say."Annie and Lorna Prince bring your dog to work day GSPCA Guernsey

"Annie my little dog often comes to work with me which she both enjoys and often earns her keep with helping with tasks around the Shelter such as school visits or seeing how dogs in for homes behave around other dogs."

Steve Byrne GSPCA Manager said "Many work places on a Friday have a mufti day but why not look at it with a twist and see if your dog can come along with you for 'Bring Your Dog to Work Day' on the 27th June."

"Before next Friday we have two fund raisers this weekend, the first at and with Grow on Saturday which is a fun day and BBQ with lots to do and the second on Sunday which is a car boot sale that Homemaker Co-op are running and holding for us."

"There are lots of ways to get involved and help the GSPCA and loads of ideas on our fund raising web page, but next Friday don't forget if you ca to take your dog to work."
