Take Your Dog to Work Day
Sponsor: Pet Sitters International
This June, the “dog days of summer” will take on a whole new meaning at workplaces across America. On Friday, June 20, water coolers will be joined by water dishes; the blue-plate special will be kibble with gravy; and the collars worn by the day’s special office visitors will have leashes attached to them.
That’s how the scene will be set when thousands of hard-working dog lovers are joined by their canine companions in commemorating the 10th year of Pet Sitters International's Take Your Dog To Work Day(TYDTWDay®).
PSI encourages local businesses to join forces with professional pet sitters and animal shelters, humane societies and rescue groups on this special day to celebrate the great companions dogs make.
Over the past decade, companies have increasingly embraced the event. Last year, there were more than 125,000 visitors to the Web site in the months of May and June alone seeking ways to participate in TYDTWDay. Created by Pet Sitters International (PSI) and bolstered in 2008 by sponsors Comfort Zone with D.A.P. and Modern Dog magazine, this unique awareness event has encouraged businesses to open their doors to employees’ well-mannered dogs on this day.
The day is built around a positive approach to confronting the not-so-positive issue of pet overpopulation—an issue that impacts nearly every community in the United States and beyond. PSI believes that TYDTWDay bolsters pet adoptions from animal shelters, humane societies and rescue groups by educating the working public on the benefits of responsible pet ownership and the power of the human-animal bond. A fun, interactive and dog-centric Web site takeyourdog.com is available to cubicle-dwelling canine enthusiasts and skeptical bosses alike who are seeking information on how to get involved.
