About the Holiday

Take Your Dog to Work Day (or TYDTWD) is a day where instead of working like a dog, you can work with your dog. Extra points if you can train your pooch to fetch you a cup of coffee. This event celebrates the great companions that dogs make and encourages employers to experience the value of pets in the workplace. The ultimate goal is to encourage more pet adoptions from shelters.

This event was started in the United States in 1999 by Pet Sitters International.[1] The official website for this holiday can be found at TakeYourDog.com This holiday first originated in the United Kingdom in 1996.[2]
