Take Your Dog to Work Day is June 24

The next time your clients come in stressed out from work, suggest they take their dogs to the job with them. And tomorrow, June 24, Take Your Dog to Work Day, is the perfect opportunity for that.

This form of “dog therapy” isn’t just for fun, either. It’s serious business. In fact, a study conducted by researchers at Virginia Commonwealth University in Richmond, Va., concluded that workers’ stress levels declined when dogs were present. The study was published in the International Journal of Workplace Health Management in 2008.

Finally, to make your staff smile and remember why they do what they do, share the video above, “Unleash the Happy,” developed by Dogswell, a pet nutrition company, who decided, in 2014, to surprise a New York City office with a stress-relieving canine takeover. 

Happy Take Your Dog to Work Day!
