Welcome to our world of work.
We are so proud that our owners' workplace is dog-friendly and that there is a growing community of pet-lovers who make us welcome at work everyday, we want to bark it from the rooftops! (Although we're not allowed on the roof, so maybe not). So settle down and we will tell you the whole tail, with a little help from our friends. Love, Purina Pets At Work Team.
Working cocker spaniel Wispa has been a regular visitor at the Purina offices since she was a puppy. Watch now to join Wispa and her owner, Communications Executive Sarah, on a tour of our dog-friendly workplace, and to discover the health and wellbeing benefits of our Pets At Work scheme.
Everyone at Purina passionately believes that people and pets are better together, whether at work or play. So what better way to turn this belief into reality than making us a part of their everyday office lives? Pets At Work practice has been established at Purina since 2003, with our Pets At Work policy in place since 2010, giving all employees the chance to bring their four-legged friends into the office. We now have nearly 50 canine colleagues in the PAW programme - as for our colleagues across the pond, some may think they are barking mad as they have attempted to break the world record by bringing 280 dogs into the office!

Since the PAW practice began over 12 years ago, we've seen so many benefits to having dogs in the office, from happier employees to a reduction in stress. These benefits don’t just apply to us and our owners, but to other employees as well – as many agree the work environment is more enjoyable and the atmosphere more upbeat.
In order for newbies to join our pack, Purina's team of pet-loving experts developed a bespoke three stage induction programme to ease dogs and owners into the world of PAW. Judging by all of our wagging tails and the wide smiles of our owners and their friends - the PAW programme has gone down like a doggie treat. Let us take you on a walkie around our PAW programme, for you to find out the full story of how we made it such a barking success, across our workplace.
