Discover how to make your workplace dog-friendly.

Dog Friendly Workplaces - Patience the Golden Retriever is happy to be at work

Whether you're starting to think about making your workplace a brilliant place to be for dogs and their owners, or are wondering how to support your staff who work from home with their dogs, our Dog Friendly Workplaces programme is for you. 

Dog Friendly Workplaces are needed now more than ever

Britain saw a 24% rise in dog ownership during the pandemic, with many new owners under 35. Our National Dog Survey, which had more than 350,000 respondents, revealed that over a third were working from home at the time, and more than 55,000 said that they would like to take their dog to work with them, but their employers wouldn't allow them to do so. 

By making your workplace dog-friendly, you can help keep families together and reduce the number of dog owners who may be forced to make the heartbreaking decision to give up their dogs because they can’t look after them during the working day.

We're here to support you 

Our Dog Friendly Workplaces programme helps companies to support not only their dog-owning employees, but also their clients, customers, and other visitors by creating a dog-welcoming and happy environment for all so they can bring their canine companions into their place of business. 

From offices to retail spaces, we're working with some of the most forward-thinking employers - and you could be part of it too. 

It’s great to be able to support our members with this helpful programme of information, some of whom really value the flexibility of bringing their dog to work. “Our pet policy also makes sure everybody feels comfortable in our spaces, and we find that welcoming dogs can boost the overall well-being and experience of our members and can even facilitate more social interactions within our community.

MINI X Dogs Trust

Our Dog Friendly Workplaces programme can provide bespoke support, whatever your business may be. 

Through this programme, we've been working with MINI to help the nation's dogs travel happier, and to ensure that our four-legged friends are as welcome in their showrooms as our two-legged friends are.
