Bring Your Dog to Work Day June 2022

On 24th June, Chell staff participated in Bring Your Dog to Work Day. Established in 2014, Bring Your Dog to Work Day is an annual nationwide event that raises money for charities dedicated to making a difference to the welfare of dogs. Across the country on the 24th June, dogs were bounding into offices and bringing a smile to staff. This year, Bring Your Dog to Work Day raised funds for three incredible charities: All Dogs Matter, a London-based dog rescue centre, Animals in Asia, a charity devoted to ending bear bile farming, and Surge Sanctuary, a sanctuary in the Midlands of England for farmed animals.

Chell joined the rest of the country – the staff brought their furry friends in, from tall to small, to enjoy the day – and lots of tasty treats – with their owners. As the Chell team found, there are a lot of positive benefits to the Bring Your Dog to Work Day. These include increased productivity, as well as a boost in wellbeing and mental health. Studies show that stroking a dog can decrease the stress hormone cortisol, helping staff relax and destress for the rest of the day.

We had a great turn out of pups this year and everyone enjoyed the doggy friendly day, playing with the dogs and letting them enjoy all the comfy office spaces.

We’re already looking forward to next year’s event!
