Join in with #BringYourDogtoWorkDay #TakeYourDogToWorkDay Friday 21st June #WithoutUs #WithoutYou

Submitted by Steve on 10:14, 13th Jun, 2024 | 0

All around Guernsey each year businesses and offices have had their 4 some 3 legged friends come to work and this year Bring Your Dog To Work Day takes places today, Friday 21st June.

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?
