What could be more fun than a office full of dogs? Well, we found out last Friday when it was national Bring Your Dog to Work Day!
Our Reigate Lettings Executive and dog lover, Sally Ewbank, put forward the wonderful idea and rallied the rest of us to put our hands in our pockets in exchange for bringing our doggies into the office. BBC Surrey got wind of our participation, and interviewed Sally on their Breakfast show. You can listen to the interview via the clip.
As well as raising funds for two great causes, All Dogs Matter and Animals Asia, BringYourToWorkDay promised to have some positive benefits for the employees of Robert Leech: increased productivity and well-being, reducing stress levels, and improving morale.
So last Friday we decided to join in the craziness and bring our woofers into the offices and we collectively donated £100 to the charity.
Here is a list of the dogs and owners that took part:
Wendi & Robert Leech with Mia the Bernese Mountain Dog
Emma West with Able the Black Lab
Richard Goman with Poppy the Golden Retriever
Sally Ewbank with Barney the Brown Lab
Michelle Cheshire with Jemima the Fox Red Lab
Charlotte Simons with Jiggly the Lurcher
