Tails were wagging as Midlands based SDL Group took part in national Bring Your Dog To Work Day, hosting a Doggy Day Care event at its offices in Chilwell.
The property specialist joined forces with Nottinghamshire husband-and-wife pet care company Animals At Home to organise the event. The four-legged experts kept the canine co-workers entertained throughout the day while Long Easton based Mobile Dog Wash pampered each pooch.
Mixing work with play, a dog agility session was also hosted to celebrate the national day, kept dry thanks to a marquee from Garden Party Hire.
Cheryl Morris, front of house and events coordinator at SDL Group, said:
“It’s important to motivate your staff, so we were glad to run this event. The stress-busting effects that pets can bring are widely known! As well as being fun, we encouraged employees to donate towards the dog rescue charity All Dogs Matter, helping to ensure other dogs are kept as happy as ours were.
“We only work with local companies who are passionate about what they do. This is the core reason we chose to work with Animals At Home, as well as the other companies they sourced. They’ve been a fantastic help and took care of organising everything.
“It was a pleasure to take part in Bring Your Dog To Work day this year, watching our staff interact with the dogs – they’ve been good as gold and have obviously enjoyed their pamper session!”
Bring Your Dog To Work Day is organised by ethical dog grooming company, HOWND ®. This year marks the fourth event of its kind.
