Started in 1999 as a fun way to promote the bond between dogs and their humans and encourage dog adoption from shelters and rescue groups, the event website,,  had over 100,000 visitors during last year's promotion.

The annual event, scheduled for the first Friday after Father's Day, is designed to encourage employers to open their doors to the joys of pets in the work place.

Actually, there's a handy downloadable action pack to make planning a successful day at work with your dog a walk in the park. It's important that your dog have office manners and an indoor voice before going to work.

Don't confuse dogs at work with working dogs...

Additionally, the hope is that employees without pets will notice their co-workers' bond with their dogs and decide to adopt an orphaned pet of their own.
