Take your dog to work day.

Jun 22, 2012 | Arizona Pet Health

Make a date with your dog before we reach the dog days of summer. June 22 is “Take Your Dog to Work Day.” So, pack up some treats, a leash, and a bowl for water – grab your pooch and head to work! Take a day to show off your best friend and encourage others to adopt a new friend of their own. As a bonus, if your employer allows pets in the office, they will see the positive effects a canine can have on work productivity.

First celebrated in 1999, Pet Sitters International’s Take Your Dog To Work Day® (TYDTWDay®) was created to celebrate the great companions dogs make and to encourage their adoption from humane societies, animal shelters and breed rescue clubs. This annual event asks pet lovers to celebrate the humane-canine bond and promote pet adoption by encouraging their employers to support TYDTWDay. Employers are encouraged to open their workplace to employees’ four-legged friends on this one special day.
