Celebrate a Decade of Dogs with The Blue Cross by taking part in its annual Take Your Dog to Work Day on Tuesday September 20th 2005.
Still one of the most popular events in the canine calendar, thousands of people and dog-loving companies have joined forces over the past decade to lend their support to Britain’s pet charity and promote what dog owners have always known - that dogs can have a positive effect on the mental and physical well-being of people around them.
Organised by The Blue Cross and sponsored by Hill’s Pet Nutrition, Take Your Dog to Work Day invites dog owners to consider how they can spend more time with their pets in response to Blue Cross research which has shown that as many as one million dogs left alone while their owners are at work may suffer from ‘home alone’ syndrome, displaying signs of anxiety and depression.
Registration is free, owners are only asked to work together with their colleagues to raise funds for The Blue Cross. For further information call 01933 825502 or visit The Blue Cross’s website at www.bluecross.org.uk.
