With only a few weeks to go until the most memorable day at the office, some of the UK’s most reputable pet brands have stepped forward to help Bring Your Dog To Work Day.

On Friday 26 June 2015, businesses from across the UK will welcome their dog loving employees into the workplace, along with their loyal (and well-behaved!) four-legged companions.

HOWND, Dogs & Horses, PetSafe, Long Paws, Natural Instinct, MedicAnimal, Leucillin, LoveSniffys, Vet’s Kitchen and Billy & Margot have all donated products towards a mega-prize, which has a total retail value of £450. It will be awarded to the best individual entry (and a minimum donation of £5) on this year’s ‘Dog With A Job Hall of Fame’, which consists of ‘pooch selfies’, along with a brief description of the dog’s work duties!

This year the event will be raising money for All Dogs Matter, a charity that rehomes hundreds of dogs every year in London and Norfolk. Businesses can donate online (minimum of £50) to take part and become a sponsor, while individuals can gift online or via text (minimum of £2 online, or £1 via text) and upload a ‘pooch selfie.’

“It’s amazing to see all these fabulous pet product brands step forward and contribute toward our mega-prize. We’re very hopeful that this will encourage even more individuals to donate, and help raise more money for All Dogs Matter,” explains Jo Amit, co-founder of dog grooming product company HOWND, the company behind the initiative.

“There’s still time for new businesses to get involved too. All they need to do is make a business donation of £50. If they choose, they can also donate a product or service towards our mega prize. Just £2 could be used to buy food for one day, while £10 is enough to buy new bedding for these rescue dogs.”

ITV This Morning presenters Eamonn Holmes and Ruth Langsford were amongst thousands of enthusiastic participants back in 2014, as Britain went barking for its very first Bring Your Dog To Work Day.

In addition, comedian and animal rights campaigner Ricky Gervais expressed support for this year’s Bring Your Dog To Work Day by posting the event to his 8.27 million Twitter followers.

The award-winning sitcom writer also mentioned the event to his three million Facebook fans, raising hopes that thousands more will donate and participate later this month.
