To celebrate the upcoming Bring Your Dog to Work Day (21 June), dog holiday provider Barking Mad, plan to set world record for the most dogs in a single webinar. There is no charge to join, but donations to dog charities are encouraged.
The UK’s sixth official Bring Your Dog to Work Day, encourages businesses to welcome canine companions into the workplace just for one day, to raise money for charity. The event was founded and is organised by ethical dog grooming product company, Hownd, and aims to raise money for All Dogs Matter, Animals Asia and other charities chosen by participants.
Barking Mad was established in 2,000 and has over 80 branches throughout the UK, its holiday service matches friendly dogs with ‘hosts’. Allowing people who don’t want the full time emotional and financial commitment of a dog ownership to experience all of the health benefits, such as companionship and exercise, with full support 24/7 and also the opportunity to meet up with other local likeminded dog lovers.
Richard Dancy, communications managing director of Barking Mad, said: “We’d love to invite as many dogs to get involved as possible. The only requirement is that they have a human with a reliable internet connection, webcam and an audio headset. The webinar will be hosted from Barking Mad HQ in the Lake District with our office dog, border collie Paddy, at the helm.
“Bring Your Dog to Work Day is a fantastic way to raise funds for animal charities and promote the positive effects of spending time with dogs. We will be using our Woofing Webinar to promote awareness of and raise money for our inspirational charity partner, Dogs for Good.”
