Bring your dog to work day

Handbag dogs - French bulldog

Computerquote Pet Insurance will be supporting ‘Bring Your Dog to Work Day” on Friday 22nd June, alongside thousands of other businesses across the UK.  Staff are being encouraged to take part so we can test the pros and cons of having your pet in the workplace.

Bring Your Dog to Work Day was originally created by Pet Sitters International and first took place in 1999. Pet Sitters International is the worlds’ educational association for professional pet sitters.

A man’s best friend was always working alongside mankind, but nowadays things have changed to our dogs waiting at home for us all alone and bored. This given day is an opportunity for us to bring back our loyal colleague into the 21st century.

Before you plan to bring in your dog for the day then you must consider the negative outcomes. Check with your colleagues of any allergies, fear of dogs and ask yourself will your dog make a mess or be noisy? Check if there’s a quieter area for you and your pet to work in and make sure take your dog out for regular breaks. Getting some fresh air will do you both good. Taking yourself away from your work to clear your head and return more focused on your workload is a win-win situation for you and your dog.

Having your pet near has been scientifically proven to have a positive and calming influence and improve an employee’s wellbeing and productivity.  So as a company full of animal lovers, Computerquote Pet Insurance has decided to brighten up the day by putting this to the test.  Look out for updates on our social media on the big day and enjoy the experience. Don’t forget to post photos of your pets having fun at work on our Facebook page:
