Take Your Dog To Work Day
Closed

Dogs have been man’s best friend far back into pre-history when they became domesticated by choosing to live and work alongside mankind. From the very beginning, they worked alongside us, hunting and tracking and even keeping us safe at night by growling and barking when danger reared its ugly head. In modern day, this relationship has been forgotten, and the poor pooch is now left to sit at home while we go about our daily business. Take Your Dog To Work Day is set to change this old policy back again, and bring the happy puppy back into our daily work lives.

History of Take Your Dog To Work Day
Pet Sitters international decided, in 1996, that there were far too many instances of people leaving their animals at home while they went about their workday. These amazing people are dedicated to saving animals from local shelters and humane shelters, and helping them find good homes with people who will love and respect them. As part of this, they developed Take Your Dog To Work Day as an attempt to help restore puppies to the workplace and help people understand the human-animal bond.
Pets.Com acquired Take Your Dog to Work Day for a while, but that was before it crashed and burned in the dot-com crash. While they were still standing up and promoting the day, it was promoted by their poster dog Ernie, and then followed him with Sandy. 5000 companies were participating in this event by the end of 2003, and it’s just growing more with every single year.
So take the time on Take Your Dog To Work Day to bring your puppy to work and help educate others on the importance of saving these amazing critters from a rescue shelter and the streets.

How to Celebrate Take Your Dog To Work Day
Well, that leaves us with a bit of a no-brainer now doesn’t it? Take your dog to work with you! This doesn’t mean you leave them in the car to cook in the midmorning sun, the puppy should spend the whole day with you by your side. If your work doesn’t have a Take Your Dog To Work Day organized, you can be the one to spearhead this idea and help bring some doggie goodness to your office. Who knows, you may find some more dog fans in your co-workers, and maybe every day will become Take Your Dog To Work Day!(Source Days of the year)

To an office,no,in the lorry cab,maybe,in the cockpit,no.
Basically a really stupid idea especially if the packed 0630 from Brighton is full of animals.

Love the idea but isn't ideal for all dogs or people and should be considered

I would love it if I could take my dog to work with me. However I don't think this is fair, my dog is a rescue dog he has been as used terribly from cigarette burns on his forehead and has been kicked. He is very nervous around other people and will go and hide anywhere he feels safe, but it's nice for other people
