Start by taking with your boss or human resources department to make them aware of Take Your Dog To Work Day. Let them know TYDTWDay can be great for company morale, serves as a fun new office perk and is a great way to promote the company. Visit the Pet Sitters International website for more helpful ways to get your company involved in this exciting day.
If dogs are already allowed at your workplace, look at TYDTWay as an opportunity to take it up a notch and host fun dog events, like a fashion show, a dog parade, or a look-a-like contest, which always gets huge laughs. Your company can also partner with a local shelter to raise money, accept wish list items for a shelter or host an adoption event. You can get really creative with this special day. Don't forget to take lots of photos and share them on your company social media accounts using #takeyourdogtoworkday
Remember, when you bring your dog to work, you still have to work. On Take Your Dog To Work Day you and your canine loving co-workers can chip in for a dog sitter. Doing so means you'll have someone at the office to keep an eye on the pups and take them out for potty breaks and walks. You can find a pet sitter on the PSI website. Did you know PSI is the world’s largest educational association for professional pet sitters?
