Why We're Supporting Bring Your Dog To Work Day

Today is Bring Your Dog To Work Day - and the whole team at Dogrobes are getting involved! Missie and Jake (pictured) are our sleeping partners in and around the office!

The annual event aims to raise money for our new official charity partners, All Dogs Matter. Our friends over at HOWND are behind the idea, and we’ve donated a £30 voucher to the Mega Prize Competition as an official business sponsor.

But we’re not the only ones taking part. Businesses from across the UK will welcome their dog-loving employees into the workplace along with their loyal (and well-behaved!) four-legged companions, all in the name of charity. Dog-loving celebrities have voiced their support too, including Ricky Gervais and Rachel Riley.

So are dogs in the office a good thing? It’s estimated that 8% of employees in Britain have permission to bring their dogs to work. Plus, an American study published in 2012 said that dogs at work can reduce stress. We certainly know from experience that Missie and Jake create a lovely environment to work in!

Businesses can donate online (minimum of £50) to take part and become a sponsor, while individuals can gift online or via text (minimum of £2 online, or £1 via text).

You can get involved in the day too. Simply use the#BringYourDogToWorkDay on social media and share your ‘pooch selfies’ with the rest of the UK!
