The day happens annually, and raises money for animal charities around the world (as well as bringing friendly new colleagues to workplaces).
Although some offices already allow furry friends, this is a very good excuse to petition your boss to allow it full time, or at least just test the water.
It’s thought that having a dog in the office can boost employee wellbeing by reducing stress, and even improve productivity through the boost in morale.
Even if you can’t bring your dog to work today, though, there are plenty of ways to get involved.
Of course, the best thing you can do is bring your dog to work today to get involved.Your business can donate as a whole (minimum £100) and get their logo and a link on the Bring Your Dog to Work Day homepage. Or, if you’d prefer to donate as an individual, £10 or more will allow you to add a pic of your fur baby to their Dog with a Job Hall of Fame.
All individual donors will also be entered to the #BringYourDogToWorkDay competition, with a chance to win some great prizes.
All proceeds go to dog rescue charity All Dogs Matter and an international charity Animals Asia.

Even if your workplace isn’t suitable for dogs, you can still send some money, or share the hashtag to show your support.
Plus, it might be time to start laying the groundwork so you can take part next year.
