BUSINESSES will be barking mad when employees bring their dogs to work next month.

Business sponsors and dog owners across the country have signed up to take part in the fifth annual Bring Your Dog to Work Day on June 22.

This year's event will raise money for the All Dogs Matter dog rescue and rehoming charity, plus other animal welfare organisations.

Sponsorship costs £100, then staff can donate a small amount to bring their dog in with them to work for the day and post pictures on the event's ‘Dog with a Job' Hall of Fame for a chance to win prizes from the event's sponsors.

There is still plenty time for sponsors to sign up and HOWND, the founders and organisers of this charity day, welcomes businesses from across all industries.

Last year, the event received sponsorship from law firms, insurances companies, local fire brigades, police forces and public transport, as well household pet brands.

HOWND hope that large corporations will take part again this year.

Jo Amit, co-founder of HOWND, said:: "Canine co-working is taking off and since Bring Your Dog to Work Day was established in 2014, we are witnessing an increased number of workplaces allowing staff to bring their dogs to into work.

"Taking a dog to the office can be very enriching for dogs as well as the staff and since its launch, the day has grown immensely in popularity, with a host of celebrities and organisations getting involved."
