Can’t Every Day be Take Your Dog to Work Day?

Can’t Every Day be Take Your Dog to Work Day?

By Mary E. Hart

Today, June 24th, is National Take Your Dog to Work Day. I always love this day and look forward to seeing pics of dogs in offices take over my social media feeds.

This year, I won’t personally be celebrating as my Black Lab/Newfoundland mix, Blake, passed away four years ago at 14 and we are still not ready to replace that void. My son -- who has Asperger’s and sensory integration disorder he absolutely loved the big furry giant that was Blake and considered him to be his hairy brother. He trusted that Blake would never jump up on him even to say “hi”, as it hurts him when dogs of any size jump up on his legs, and Blake somehow knew this and never did.

 


With that said, I did celebrate Take Your Dog to Work Day pretty much every day for a number of years as I worked from home. So, every day was Take Your Dog to Work Day for me! It was great having the fluffy hound curled up at my feet, or making sure that I got outside and away from my desk for a few walking breaks a day. Plus, petting a dog is a great way to relieve stress. You’ll feel more relaxed instantly.

Would you like to work from home and spend breaks with your dog in your home office? Your focus of course during work hours should be a distraction- and noise-free environment for phone calls. Our goal is to place as many Americans with disabilities as possible in jobs that allow them to work out of their home. We’d love to help you find your next role or help you start a career.
