Take your dog towork day

Better Homes and Gardens (Australia) - - Animal Advice -

Fri­day, June 22 is a day to cel­e­brate dogs, ar­guably man’s best friend, and the dif­fer­ence they can make to peo­ple’s lives. Cre­ated by Pet Sit­ters In­ter­na­tional (PSI), Take your Dog to Work Day is an an­nual event which en­cour­ages em­ploy­ers to al­low pet dogs in the work­place so ev­ery­one can ex­pe­ri­ence the ben­e­fits and to en­cour­age more peo­ple to adopt pets. Tips to en­sure a peace­ful and pro­duc­tive day:

• Check with man­age­ment and your col­leagues that your pooch is wel­come.

• Pet-proof your work space – keep all po­ten­tially dan­ger­ous items out of paw’s reach!

• Bring their bed, favourite toy, treats, food and wa­ter bowl and set them up be­side you.

• Have an exit strat­egy in case your favourite com­pan­ion doesn’t like be­ing your as­sis­tant!

• Never leave your pet alone in a ve­hi­cle while you work. More tips at takey­our­dog.com
