Office Doors Open Wide to Canine Co-workers

Pets are taking centre stage today for Bring Your Dog to Work Day and the launch of the 6th annual Family Pet Show at EventCity Manchester.

The Family Pet Show hosted an event in Manchester’s most pet friendly offices, WeWork, where work space was taken over by furry friends including Britain’s Got Talent’s favourite dancing duo, Lucy and Trip Hazard and Safari Phil with his critters including a very sexy Tarantula called Miss Foxxxy Love.

The pet extravaganza that takes place annually at EventCity is the only indoor event that allows thousands of families to bring their pets along.

Bring Your Dog to Work Day, founded by Hownd, sees workers across the nation bring their dogs to work to raise thousands of pounds for dog charities. Having your pet by your side at work is known to reduce stress and even boost productivity.

Workers who bring their pups to work with them every day came together for the event where Lucy & Trip Hazard gave a private performance; a great alternative to a standard coffee break!

PDSA Petsurance, sponsors of The Family Pet Show were on hand to talk to owners about the vital role Pet Insurance plays in ensuring pets can lead happy healthy  lives and how PDSA Petsurance supports the life-saving work of pet charity PDSA.,

PDSA were offering pooches who work in the building their ‘PetWise’ MOTs which assess the five elements pets need to be healthy and happy.

Tina Sleigh from PDSA Petsurance said “We’re delighted to be sponsoring the Family Pet Show to encourage owners to protect their beloved companions from unplanned vet fees.”

The Family Pet Show attracts thousands of families each year, held in Manchester’s EventCity on the 6th and 7th October. The action-packed weekend will see the return of many favourite’s including Scruffts, the nation’s favourite crossbreed

competition, Cat World, Safari Phil, Crocodile Joe, Alpacas, miniature ponies, James Bowen and Street Cat Bob as well as Lucy and Trip Hazard from Britain’s Got Talent.

Carrie Mosley, Managing Director of The Family Pet Show said “We know pets are a very important part of the family which is why we created the Family Pet Show which is the only indoor show where visitors can bring the whole family, including their pets. It made total sense for us to launch this year’s show and celebrate Take Your Dog To Work Day with WeWork who also believe that pets should be a welcome In the workplace”
