For many of us, leaving our pooches to whine at the window as we walk down the driveway and into our cars, is the hardest part of the day. Fortunately, today, it's Bring Your Dog To Work Day, so you can head to the office without feeling guilty!
Universities have demonstrated how 'puppies rooms' serve to be great stress relievers for students, so it seems only fair that our furry friends should be welcomed into the workplace too. Spending a lunchtime cuddling our four legged companions will provide a brief relief from that endless to-do list, and gives our dogs the attention they so crave, too!
'Increased job satisfaction, team co-operation and morale have all been reported in employees that spend the workday with their pets.' - Organisers of the event.
Bring Your Dog To Work Day is organised by the charity, HOWND® and since 2014, it has grown to be the fifth national event of its kind. This year, the organisation will be working alongside the charity, All Dogs Matter, which rescues, rehabilitates and rehomes hundreds of abandoned dogs every year.
Whilst you're busy typing away, making phone calls and attending meetings, you'll want to make sure your pooches stay occupied. With Mutts & Hounds you can be sure your furry friends are well kitted out for their day at the office. A chew strip, dog biscuits, some toys and bones make for a great bribe, and you'll definitely be needing a lead for those midday stretches around the block.

Boris, the office dog here at Beyond Bespoke, can either be found sat beside one of the team in their chair, or waiting (it has to be said, rather impatiently!), for his lunchtime strolls around the town of Sherborne. A Mutts & Hounds chew proves to be the best way to keep Boris at bay.
We would love to see all of your work pooch selfies. Use the hashtag #BringYourDogToWorkDay and be sure to @BeyondBespoke.
