Bring Your Dog To Work Day 21st June – top pet care brands taking part in Britain’s best day out for dogs


Just over a week to go till Britain’s best loved charity day out for dogs – and there are some pawsome prizes to be won


Next Friday, 21st June, is Bring Your Dog To Work Day, Britain’s best fun day out for dogs with thousands of companies and dogs party across the country.  

Some of the UK’s leading pet care brands have sponsored the fundraising event and have donated prizes that one lucky dog and their owner will win in our prize draw.


Top brands such as HOWND, Lily’s Kitchen, Poppy’s Picnic, Covetrus, Purely Pets, Barking Max, Nylabone, Vita Animal Health, Omlet, Dogrobes, The Office Dog, Ruff and Tumble, Webbox Natural, Butternut Box, Hi life, Pure Pet Food, are sponsoring the day and donating prizes and many more signing up every day to take part in this annual event that is raising money for All Dogs Matter and Animals Asia.


Now in its sixth year Bring Your Dog To Work Day is great fun, boosts staff morale and grows in popularity every year, trending on social media and gets a lot of attention in the press, on radio and on T.V. 


Bring Your Dog To Work day always attract a lot of attention from celebrities and media including Ricky Gervais, Downton’s Peter Egan, the Disney UK team, ITV’s Loose Women, many BBC radio and television shows, and many more high profile celebrities and media outlets, all showing their support last year by posting on social media.


Every company that sponsors the event gets a shout-out on social media and with 13m seeing our Twitter feed it is great exposure for brands.


To take part, dog owners simply need to sign up and make a minimum of £10 donation. They can then upload a picture of their beloved dog and simply describe their dog’s work duties (this can be licking the dishwasher, attending a board meeting or just making you smile).

When dog owners donate £10 and sign up for the Dog With A Job Hall Of Fame they are in for a chance to win some pawtastic prizes donated by our business sponsors in our competition.


Founded and organised by multi-award winning ethical pet care brand HOWND. Jo Amit of HOWND says: “Bring Your Dog To Work Day has really taken off over the last six years.  We have some incredible sponsors on board and the goodwill and support is tremendous. People have really taken the day to heart and organise some great workplace events to celebrate bringing their dogs to work, it’s such a treat for dogs and their owners alike and great fun for everyone!”.


It is not too late for businesses to come on board as official sponsors and raise funds for their own animal welfare charities too. Bring Your Dog To Work Day’s social pages, as well as the official charity’s, will share all Bring Your Dog To Work Day official sponsors’ in-house fundraising events, competitions and activities in their social feeds.  


In return for a business making a minimum £100 donation, its company logo and website link will be displayed on the homepage, and they will receive a thank you shout out from All Dogs Matter and Animals Asia on social media. It is a great opportunity to associate a brand with this worthwhile and pawtastic day!
