The importance of a mentally and physically healthy workforce as a company cannot be overstated. A healthy staff improves productivity and decreases absenteeism, saving a company time and money on training new team members.
Your company must invest in programs and activities that make employees feel valued and cared for. Employees also often view wellness programs as a perk, so it's become increasingly vital that your programs and offerings help you stand out in the job market. But with various wellness ideas for employees to choose from, it can be tough to know what to choose to best benefit your employees.
That’s where Puppy Love™ comes in. We offer the perfect experience to help boost employee morale and wellness. Our experienced puppy coaches can curate an experience that will work in whatever space you have available without requiring immense planning.
By spending time with our puppies, your employees will receive a therapeutic and social activity to help them feel appreciated and seen in their workspace.Download Our Brochure
Research shows that interacting with puppies profoundly boosts human mental health. Puppies know how to sit with humans and be present with emotions. In a way, they can absorb negative feelings, which decreases cortisol or stress hormones in humans.
Puppies are also fantastic at socializing. Studies indicate that interacting with puppies can decrease loneliness, which can lead your staff to feel more supported in their workspace. By spending time together with the puppies, your team will also be able to socialize with each other, which can increase the feeling of social support from their peers and coworkers.
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.
Puppy Love puppies are rescue pups looking to be adopted into good homes. If your employees spend time with our puppies, they may discover that a pet could significantly improve their quality of life. Our puppies would be thrilled to find their forever home with your staff.
Puppies need to be walked daily, which increases physical activity and encourages people to get outside. The need for routine will assist struggling employees with having an immediate need to get up and begin the day. Playing with puppies naturally increases serotonin and dopamine, and studies have shown that pet owners are less likely to suffer from depression.
Studies have shown that pet owners over 65 make 30% fewer visits to their doctor than those living alone. Puppies often reduce blood pressure and hypertension in humans, decreasing risks for chronic illness.
Puppies love meeting new people, and you’ll meet other pet owners in dog parks, hiking trails, and pet stores. Dogs give people common ground and make great conversation starters, so making new friends with people with shared interests and lifestyles becomes easier. Cultivating a robust social circle will reduce feelings of loneliness and isolation among staff members.
Finally, simply stroking an animal can reduce anxiety by offering sensory relief. Pets improve self-confidence and can help their owners live in the present. The companionship and emotional support a pet offers will transform the mental well-being of struggling employees.
Here at Puppy Love, we understand you have plenty of options for your employee wellness opportunities. We strive to make our puppy experiences easy and fun for employers and employees. Our staff takes care of everything from start to finish, allowing you to relax and enjoy our puppies’ wellness benefits.
Different setup options are available to meet your venue and budget requirements. Our setups include a puppy pen with double-layer waterproof flooring to protect your floors from accidents. Our team of trained puppy coaches will be at your event to help employees into the puppy pen and clean and sanitize any messes our pups make. We are here to help you have the best puppy experience, and we look forward to seeing the joy on your employees’ faces when they meet our puppies.

The Puppy Love experience is one of the best employee wellness opportunities. The experience will help your employees feel valued and cared for in their place of employment while also introducing them to the power of pets.
Puppies improve mental well-being by reducing stress and increasing socialization. The companionship of a pet can have a transformative impact on employees' psychological and physical health. By adopting a pet, employees will experience lower anxiety, reduced blood pressure, and fewer doctor visits. Even a short visit with puppies, like during a Puppy Love™ event, can positively affect employee well-being.
