This Friday June 26th is 'Bring Your Dog to Work Day' - instead of a dress down day could your dog come to work for a donation

Submitted by Steve on 07:27, 24th Jun, 2015 | 0

This Friday June 26th 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.
