Top Products for Take Your Dog To Work Day
Pet friendly offices are a growing trend, but there are still many doting dog owners who only have the privilege of bringing their pup in to celebrate Take Your Dog to Work Day, to be held on June 24. While there’s plenty of potential for a fun, morale-boosting day with a few four-legged visitors around, the excitement of an unfamiliar setting could be a recipe for office mishaps. Pet specialty retailers can help the day go as smoothly as possible by calling customers’ attention to products that will keep pets safe, happy and out of trouble. We’ve put together a selection of suggestions that will get any pet parent and their dog prepared for a successful 9-to-5:
Get There Safely
Safety first—make sure pet owners are equipped with a car harness or car-safe carrier for a secure, stress-free commute. Kurgo’s Impact Harness, which has been tested using the Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard for child restraint systems, is purpose-built for car safety and dog comfort.
A lightweight and portable bowl makes for easy transport and convenient feeding and watering in the office. The Dexas-Popware for Pets Value line includes collapsible bowls available in a variety of sizes and colors that pop open and fold flat with a simple push on the flexible bottom.
For dog owners who need to keep their pet from roaming the office halls, a gate is essential. Richell USA offers a wide range of containment options that can be used in office doorways or extended across larger openings, like the company’s Convertible Elite Pet Gate.
A high-quality chew toy will help keep pups entertained, and (hopefully) reduce the chances of them finding other things to gnaw on. Toys like Mammoth Pet’s Flossy Chews Extra give dogs something to sink their teeth into and offer the option for a quick tug-of-war during a work break.
Reap the Rewards
No adventure is complete without some treats along the way—make sure owners are equipped with some tasty snacks to reward their pets on a job well done. Emerald Pet Products’ Smart n’ Tasty Twizzies Bits are non-staining, odorless chews, making them an ideal choice for the office.
