History and Significance

The first celebrations of this unofficial holiday began in the year 1996. It was created by Pet Sitters International to highlight how having a pet brings happiness in the lives of people. The people here found that a lot of people leave their pets at home and head to work, often making the pooches feel alone. And often the dogs are later abandoned because people cannot cope up with work and pets together. So to help them find good homes which give them love and respect them, this fun celebration was initiated. This day is celebrated in Canada, Australia, United Kingdom, New Zealand, and Israel.

On this day, people can get their pooches to work and spend a fun day with others, it enhances more pet and human interaction. Besides, there are certain events and charities held on this day by animal NGOs that again help to promote the adoption of dogs from local shelters. This year the celebrations are likely to not take place as most companies and employees are all operating from home. So right now every day seems like Take Your Pet to Work Day for dog owners.
