We all know the daily routine of clocking in and clocking out for work. Whether it be in person, hybrid or remote, adults spend a significant amount of their days at the workplace. And with recent economic and societal shake ups, it is becoming increasingly vital to engage employees in a social and supportive environment for the sake of retention and overall team performance.
One of the best things you can do for your employees and overall company culture is encourage team building through Puppy Love's wellness group activities. Puppy Love is here to design a team building experience that will promote the bonding your employees need to be successful.
Employees who are happier and feel a strong bond with their coworkers are better at collaborating effectively on team projects, resulting in high performance and innovative problem solving. So how do you increase happiness and the bond between your employees? Puppies! Puppies are the perfect source of laughter and increasing happiness. They exude cuteness, but they are also able to reduce cortisol levels in humans. The calm, happy feelings puppies generate in people also help them feel comfortable and more open around their peers.
This is what makes a Puppy Love team building experience unique. There’s no pressure to master a game or win, and a Puppy Love experience produces a non-competitive environment, helping teams focus on growth, wellness, and each other.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.
Team building activities create a place for team members to learn more about how each other communicates and work together in a low stress environment. These opportunities also offer opportunities for employees to be themselves, which helps to identify employees’ different strengths, such as who stands out as natural leaders.
Research demonstrates the need for team building activities to improve workplace health and behavior, but it can be difficult to find an activity employees not only want to engage in but look forward to. Employees who work in a remote or hybrid capacity may also need a little extra incentive to come into the office for the day, and there is no better way to bring people together than the promise of sweet puppy cuddles. That’s why a session with Puppy Love is the exact wellness group activity you need to promote empathy and compassion amongst your team members. Employees will prioritize coming into work to allow them to participate and they won’t be able to stop talking about the experience, providing even more opportunities to bond together as a team, even after the event

It is well known that it’s impossible to hold in a smile when your eyes see a puppy. Dogs, especially puppies, love to love people. Puppies promote happiness, and happy employees tend to be more productive in the workplace. Employees can bond over witnessing a sweet pup make a silly face while yawning or a puppy can be the conversation starter you need to get your teams making connections and talking to each other face-to-face.
Dogs naturally reduce loneliness and stress levels in humans which can lead to continued positive associations with work. Team members can enjoy this experience and talk about how relaxed and happy they feel together, encouraging the bonding an organization needs to thrive. The demands of the workplace can often get overwhelming for the individual, but it is less so when they feel like they have a team they can actively rely on for support.
A Puppy Love session is a wonderful wellness group activity that enhances company culture and positive associations with work.

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.
