Droitwich Editorial 25th Jun, 2019 Updated: 25th Jun, 2019

THERE were many smiles and barks last week when employees from Droitwich-based Fish4Dogs held its annual Bring Your Dog To Work Day, writes Oliver Clarke.

The day raised cash for charities which support dogs and their welfare.

Fish4Dogs promoted Friday’s event as it has a ‘bring your dog to work day’ everyday which has become popular among its pet-loving workforce since its launch 12 years ago.

Workers also enjoyed fish for lunch from ‘The Village’ – a local fish and chip van, while their four-legged friends were treated to the company’s salmon and potato.

Representatives from Birmingham Dogs’ Home and the UK Flyball League also went along.

The UK Flyball League’s Jen Collins gave a presentation on the fast-paced sport which challenges dogs to avoid hurdles and catch a ball.

Giles Webber, CEO of Birmingham Dogs’ Home, had spaniel Riley with him who is looking for a new home.

Mr Webber gave a presentation on the centre’s work rescuing, reuniting and re-homing thousands of dogs every year.

Event Organiser Theresa Hayes said it was beneficial to have dogs in offices and the firm had found it led to increased productivity.
