Who let the dogs out - and then brought them to work! Bring Your Dog To Work Day comes to DJS Research
26th June 2019 14:50
Friday 21st June was a first in DJS Research history. It was the day the doggies came to the office - and what a totally pawfect day it was too!
Despite trying to oust the boss, Olivia the pug ended the day on a high scooping the award for 'Most Obedient' dog in the DJS doggy awards.
Conner, who works in the DJS CATI unit and owns Buster the Boxer who won the award for the 'Waggiest Tail', said of the day:
"I thought it was amazing,"
"It lifted the spirits in the office and I think it was a good thing for the company as I mixed and spoke to lots of people from the different departments, who I’d never spoken to before."
So, is it likely that DJS Doggy day will be returning one day soon for more canine capers?
"It was absolutely brilliant," said MD Danny, "I think everybody thoroughly enjoyed it and it is definitely something we will look to do again in the future."
