Better get out the good collar, because your dog’s got a big day at the office! Take Your Dog to Work Day bounds into America’s workplaces this June 20 on four fluffy paws. But not every office is prepared for the pet fest that comes with this FURbulous work day.
Just ask longtime advocate of a pet-friendly workplace, Chris Ashton, Co-Founder and Co-CEO of Petplan pet insurance. “Every day is Take Your Dog to Work Day at Petplan,” says Ashton. “We love having pets in the office. It keeps our teams happy and more likely to stay and build their careers with us. Plus it’s just great fun.” After ten years of dogs in the conference rooms and cats on the copiers, the Petplan team learned some helpful hints along the way.
Here’s what Chris – alongside wife, co-Founder and co-CEO Natasha Ashton – wish they’d known when they first opened their doors to man’s best friend.
With treat jars around every corner and pet play areas for supervised off-leash fun, Petplan’s suburban Philadelphia office is a doggie dream come true. “It’s easy to create a fun, safe place for pets at work,” says Dr. Jules Benson, Petplan’s Chief Veterinary Medical Officer.

Pets bring so much joy and delight to the workspace. With Take Your Dog to Work Day just around the corner, Chris Ashton suspects more and more companies will extend the holiday to an official office perk. “It’s pretty simple, really,” Ashton explains. “A pet-friendly office makes people friendly too. It’s hard not be happy with your job when you get to work with your best friend.”
