Date set for Bring Your Dog to Work Day

Bring Your Dog To Work Day is set to return this year on 22nd June.

Now in its fith year, the popular day founded and organised by pet care brand HOWND, is embraced by thousands of UK businesses and employees across the UK.

High profile celebrities such as Ricky Gervais, the Top Gear team, ITV’s Loose WomenTennis TV, Shrek the Musical, Coronation Street and many more all showed their support last year by posting on social media.

Jo Amit, co-owner of HOWND and founder and organiser of Bring Your Dog To Work Day says: “Just interacting with these wonderful animals can help reduce stress levels and blood pressure. Taking part in Bring Your Dog to Work Day sure is making bosses around the country more popular with their staff!

“I’ve never seen an unhappy office dog, only unhappy employees who have to leave their beloveds at home. We love the response the event gets each year – it’s a real highlight for us to see so many happy dogs and owners at work together.”

Every year, it donates the funds raised from business sponsorships and individual donations to animal welfare charities via the official Bring Your Dog To Work Day website.

Money raised in 2018 will go directly to All Dogs Matter, a charity that rescues and rehomes hundreds of dogs each year in the UK.

This year, the organisers are also encouraging businesses to come on board as official sponsors and raise funds for their own animal welfare charities too. Bring Your Dog To Work Day’s social pages, as well as the official charity’s, will share all Bring Your Dog To Work Day official sponsors’ in-house fundraising events, competitions and activities in their social feeds.

Last year the hashtag #BringYourDogToWork trended again at number one on Twitter when it reached over 13 million users in one hour.
