As a pet-adoring company, we really push the boat out for Bring Your Dog to Work Day (Friday 26th June this year, in case you missed it) – an annual event where dog-loving employees around the UK can welcome their furry friends into the office to raise money for canine welfare.
All donations from this year’s event went towards All Dogs Matter – a charity who rescue and re-home hundreds of dogs every year in London and Norfolk.
We strongly believe there are a phenomenal amount of benefits to bringing pets into the workplace and are proud to already be leading the pack.
Nearly every day, one of our canine companions can be found in the PetsPyjamas HQ – usually sitting in on board meetings, joining the team for lunch or making the rounds underneath desks to check for stray snacks!
However, we’re not the only ones to have our four-legged friends join us frequently at work. Fashion designer Henry Holland often has his French Bulldog Peggy accompany him to the studio, and renowned fashion magazine Tatler have a very adorable office Dachshund called Geoffrey.
Studies have shown that dogs at work decrease stress levels in employees throughout the day and encourage people to take more breaks, leading to higher productivity and job satisfaction.
They also bring employees closer together and raise morale – ideal for those manic Mondays!
Here are the PetsPyjamas dogs that bring smiles to many faces with their frequent visits to the office:

Piper the Lurcher – owned by Graica Amico, CEO of PetsPyjamas.com
Kobi the Husky – owned by John Molesworth, Senior Designer
