Today could get a little hairy at DBpixelhouse, as we take part in Bring Your Dog to Work day. With ten PixelPups rampaging around the office and warehouse, a lot of fun is being had in the name of several good causes. The money we’re raising today will be divided between All Dogs Matter, a UK based dog rescue charity and Animals Asia, who work tirelessly to protect animal rights and welfare in China and Vietnam.
Bring Your Dog to Work Day is organised by ethical pet care product manufacturer HOWND and has taken place every year since 2014. It’s as simple as it sounds, we’re simply bringing our dogs to work with us for the day. Being the first time we’ve done this, we can’t be sure how much work will get done today—but we know we’ll have a great time and raise money for two very worthwhile charities.
DBpixelhouse Graphic Designer Katie McNaught first suggested we take part: “The idea came from a colleague – that as part of DB’s corporate social responsibility, we should support an animal charity by bringing our dogs into work for one day and all donating. A quick Google search revealed that this magical day already existed and has been running for several years. So here we are, overrun with dogs—from Greyhounds and Springer Spaniels, to German shepherds and French bulldogs. Seeing as it was my idea, I guess it’s on my head if it goes wrong, so no pressure!”
We have lots of doggy related activities lined up for the day, including group dog walks, obedience and agility tasks and a canine quiz. Fingers (and paws) crossed it will be a great day for everyone, staff and pooches alike!
DBpixelhouse founder and CEO, David Bulley jumped at the opportunity to support Bring Your Dog to Work Day: “We take our corporate social responsibility seriously at DB and are keen to do more for good causes. A lot of us have dogs, so when Katie approached me about today, I thought it was a great idea! In the early days of DB, when we were based out of a barn, I used to bring my dog into the office everyday—so it feels quite familiar.”
“I’m delighted how the whole team have bought into the event today. Everyone’s enthusiasm is indicative of who we are at DBpixelhouse: keen to get stuck in and aren’t fazed by working in an unpredictable environment.”Back to News
