National Take Your Dog to Work Day, celebrated annually on the Friday following Father’s Day, honors one of our most beloved pets.
Wouldn’t you agree, the hardest part of the day is leaving our four-legged fur babies behind as we head to the office?
So, when Pet Sitters International (PSI) pitched the idea of taking them with us, how could we resist? Dogs brighten up even the best days so it’s pretty obvious they will up the fun factor at work exponentially.
As you run out the door, don’t forget your briefcase and a doggie bag. We’ll see you at the office!
But if you receive the green light from your company, this holiday is a great way to show off your dog to your coworkers.
National Take Your Dog to Work Day began in 1999 as a way to celebrate companion dogs and to encourage adoptions.
Having your dog at work with you all day may make it a little tough to get all of your tasks done. But having the dog with you may allow you to interact with your coworkers in a whole new way, as the dog is a great icebreaker.
Pitch that idea of promoting better communication and teamwork to your boss, and you may convince him or her to allow you to have Fido sitting next to your desk, celebrating this holiday.
