Today is Take Your Dog To Work Day, and it’s always been a rousing success – we’ve got the photos to prove it! Dogs big and small were taken to so many different types of jobs and it was really great to see all the photos everyone took of such a variety of dogs doing a variety of things! Here we’ve scoured the #TakeYourDogToWorkDay tag on Instagram to find the cutest photos of participants in this awesome day!
The people at Purina even tried to set a new world record for “Most Pets in a Workplace in One Day” for RecordSetter.com as a way to really try to promote dogs in the workplace. Because they feel passionate about pups, Purina asked Mississippi State University’s College of Veterinary Medicine to conduct a workplace survey, and what did they discover? It’s no surprise to dog lovers that almost two out of 3 people surveyed agreed that pets should be allowed in the workplace if the majority of the company doesn’t mind. 85% of employees from companies that already allow pets believe it is beneficial to both the humans and the pets, to have them around. Despite that only 72% of people said their jobs currently allow them to bring their pet to work on a regular basis, and more than half of those who do want pets in the office are willing to spearhead campaigns to get their workplaces pet-friendly!
As for the record, Purina will find out in a few weeks if they successfully won the title, though since no current similar record exists the chances are high that they’ll take home the prize. All in all everyone had a great day at work…but was really ready for the weekend.
