World's Largest Dog Training Company Provides Common-Sense Pointers to Prepare for a Successful Workplace Experience
ENGLEWOOD, Colo.— With the 10th Annual "Take Your Dog to Work Day" approaching (Friday, June 20), Bark Busters, the world's largest and most trusted dog training company, offers helpful tips for the estimated 44.8 million U.S. dog owners on how to prepare and manage their dogs for the workplace experience. According to a survey conducted by the American Pet Products Manufacturers Association (APPMA), nearly one in five companies allows pets in the workplace, and organizers anticipate tens of thousands of companies will participate in Take Your Dog to Work Day.
"We celebrate this day in support of its creator, Pet Sitters International, and its sponsors, Comfort Zone® with D.A.P.® and Modern Dog magazine. This event educates the working public on the benefits of responsible pet ownership, raises the awareness of the importance of the human-animal bond, and supports the efforts of our local animal shelters, rescues and humane societies," said Liam Crowe, CEO and master dog behavioral therapist, Bark Busters USA. "At Bark Busters, every day is Take Your Dog to Work Day."
The Australian founders of Bark Busters, who are pioneers in dog behavioral therapy, developed natural training techniques that use the same communication methods—body language and voice control—that dogs follow as part of their instinctual pack mentality. According to Crowe, the tips Bark Busters dog behavioral therapists provide their clients are not only based on good common sense, but also have been well tested during the company's 19 years of experience in training more than 400,000 dogs worldwide.
"When it comes to taking your dog to the office," added Crowe, "the key to a safe and successful experience is to prepare yourself and your dog in advance and to recognize potential problem situations before they happen." Crowe offers these pointers for dog owners who plan to bring their canine companions to work:
According to Crowe, preparing for a safe and successful "Take Your Dog to Work Day" includes making sure that your dog accepts you as his leader.
"Most dog owners simply accept the bad behavior of their pets because they don't know how to change it," Crowe said. "Learning how to communicate effectively with your dog in a language he understands, through voice control and body language, is the key to providing the leadership needed to have authority over your dog at all times."
