You’ve been walking around a conference center for hours. Your feet hurt. You’re tired. The last thing you want is another t-shirt, mediocre cookie, or flier shoved at you. You need a break to refresh yourself both mentally and physically. And while surrounded by all the lights, noise and crowds, finding something that stands out is essential. Enter puppies!
Trade shows and conferences have been bursting since the end of the pandemic. People are ready to get out, socialize and see their competition. Trade shows are beneficial because they draw together similar companies to one place – but that also means they can start to blend together. You need an “activation idea” — something different to offer to help gain your audience’s attention.
Ideas like tents, swag and food are overdone. Repeating the same ideas over and over again isn’t going to do anything, no matter how good you think those cookies taste. Instead, consider what corporate wellness companies can do for your business.
Take a break from the hustle and bustle by presenting attendees with a soothing, fun experience. A Puppy Experience from Puppy Love is the perfect activation idea. It provides a memorable interaction that is both exciting and relaxing. Plus, all those puppy kisses, pets, head butts and selfies will keep visitors at your booth longer.
Incorporating puppies into your booth will save you from trying to make awkward eye contact with potential customers. A Puppy Experience provides a fun experience and guarantees they’ll be back from more — with their friends!Download Our Brochure
Who doesn’t want to come to the office when there are puppies? Nothing makes the workplace more attractive than knowing there are adorable furry creatures to frolic with.
For employees who have never met or who don’t know each other well – or even those who do, puppies are an amazing conversation starter and bonding experience.
Daily work saturation can get overwhelming. A few minutes of Puppy Love™ organically clears minds and boosts serotonin, leading to a positive attitude re-adjustment.
When employees feel appreciated, all good things come – including the desire to work and do well for the company.
The photo opps and buzz factor around a Puppy Love™ experience are unparalleled. Smiles will abound as photos are shared and the afterglow continues all through the day!
We all know the feeling of stress at work – looming deadlines, performance reviews, etc. A few minutes playing with puppies makes all that melt away and allows employees to lower their anxiety levels.
What makes puppies the perfect activation idea? Using puppies in marketing is nothing new. They build trust, are memorable and help people relax. Let’s face it, they’re adorable, and you want to see more of them!
It doesn’t matter if your product has anything to do with animals. Puppies provide an instant dopamine boost. Interacting with dogs, specifically, has been shown to create more positive interactions and memories than interacting with other animals.
A study published in 2022 in the Journal of Marketing found that exposure to dogs creates a “promotion-focused motivational mindset.” In short, having a dog linked to your product makes people listen to you longer. It also means they’ll have a positive association with your company.
Make your product or service more memorable than the rest by partnering with Puppy Love. In addition to providing a relaxing, fun and unique experience, all of our puppies are adoptable, further entwining your company and product with a positive association. We’ll provide more tail-wagging than other corporate wellness companies will!

I recently had the pleasure of attending a corporate wellness event for Google where they hosted Puppy Love, who provided an amazing puppy experience. I’m an avid animal lover and was thrilled to see an employee engagement that not only focused on employee wellness but also gave back to the community in such a meaningful way.
The Puppy Love event was fantastic. We were able to interact with adoptable dogs, and the event organizers provided information on the featured rescue who provided the pups. It was heartwarming to see everyone come together to support such an important cause – not to mention have a blast!
I was impressed with how well-organized the event was - and the attention to detail. The pups were well-cared for, and the Puppy Love team was great.
This was an excellent example of how a company can help make a positive impact on the community while also promoting employee wellness/happiness. I hope to see more events like this in the future, and I applaud Google for their commitment to giving back and supporting their employees in this way."

Even the most conscientious workplace can be stress-filled. We believe cuddling and playing with puppies is an ideal way to restore the balance. In fact, scientific studies have shown positive therapeutic effects from animal interaction – including decreasing blood pressure and reduced levels of cortisol.
Puppy Love™ founder Sabrina Freed combined her two key passions: creating outstanding events and animal advocacy. A pioneer in the field of high-profile conferences Sabrina realized firsthand how employees would benefit from puppies in the workplace, and likewise, how employers would see results in worker efficiency, and wellness. A wonderful give-back, Puppy Love also donates 20% of all proceeds back into the local rescue community.
Puppy Love was started in San Francisco and serves all areas of northern and southern California. We also partner with rescues nationwide to provide Puppy Love experiences across the U.S.
Yes. Each location carries liability insurance of $2M to ensure our attendees and puppies are well covered.
