Take Your Pug to Work Day!

Okay, make that Take Your Dog to Work Day. And it’s tomorrow, Friday the 24th. So Pablo would like to remind all his doggie friends lucky enough to be going to an office to be on their best behavior. And thanks to all those working dogs out there who go to work every single day! (Of course, Pablo counts himself in their ranks. After all, he’s a lap dog and no canine on Earth works harder to keep any lap in his vicinity from remaining empty.)

If you’re planning on bringing your dog to the office tomorrow, here are some helpful hints from the American Kennel Club:

Survey the scene. Before bringing your dog to the office, take a look around and pet-proof your space. Secure all cabinets and trash cans that contain food. Remove anything smaller than a tennis ball or items within your pet’s reach that have sharp edges or could be a choking hazard. Cover any exposed electrical cords or outlets to prevent burns and electrocution as the result of chewing.

Mind your dog’s manners. You should only take well-trained and housebroken dogs to work with you. Make sure your pooch is socialized and safe around strangers. If your dog is unnerved by changes in environment or social situations, the attention and strange noises associated with an office may cause your dog undue stress.

A healthy dog means a happy coworker. You would stay home from work if you were sick and so should your dog. If your pup has a contagious condition, it is best he stay at home. It is also very important to make sure he is up to date on all of his vaccinations.

Keep your pooch pristine. Make sure your dog is clean and well-groomed before you take him to the office. A dirty dog might cause co-workers to complain.

Bring the necessities. Make sure you bring the necessities your dog needs with you, such as bowls, food, quiet chew toys, treats, clean up bags and a leash.

Supervise! Keep an eye on your dog at all times. Be mindful of those who might be afraid of your dog and people who are allergic to him.

    Uh-oh. Poor K. Can’t wait to see the photos. Or will Pablo be in your office, giving you a paw with your work?

    Is the purpose of this day to let one’s dog see what job he or she might eventually want to have?

  2. Hi Pablo,
