The first Take Your Dog to Work Day occurred in 1999, by Pet Sitters International. Their goal was to "celebrate the great companions dogs make and to encourage their adoption from humane societies and breed rescue clubs." The hope is employers will open up their businesses to welcome in our furpals and celebrate the bond we share with our pets while promoting pet adoption.

And just like at the end of a long, hard work day, when some hu-folks enjoy a "happy hour," socializing with friends over food and drinks...so can our dogs during today's very first National Dog Party Day!
Created by pet expert Arden Moore,
National Dog Party Day is being celebrated on both coasts, with fun happenings such as baking contests, pet celebrities, and more, in the hopes of having more pet parties hosted across the country while promoting pet groups and the cherished bond between hu-parents and furkids. So after our dogs work all day, now they can, as Arden says, "party like a pup star" at a pawsome pet party!
Here is a little video featuring Arden hosting a pet party:
