Health and Wellness Activities

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.

Puppies Support Mental Well-being

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.

Benefits Of
A Puppy Love Experience

Reduce Employee Absenteeism

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.

Increase Positive Work Relationships

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.

Increase Employee Attention

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.

Improve Employee Productivity

When employees feel appreciated, all good things come – including the desire to work and do well for the company.

Bring Smiles Throughout the Day

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!

Reduce Stress & Anxiety

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.

Ways Puppies Improve Wellness

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.

All attendees were in love with this idea and it really made the entire conference extra special.

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.


Google, Business Admin Partner

The fact that you worked so hard to make it happen did not go unnoticed, and we appreciate your efforts more than words can say.

In particular, we wanted to thank you for bringing in so many great leads for us. Your presence and the excitement it generated were instrumental in helping us connect with potential customers and partners. We believe that these connections will lead to great things for our business, and we owe a lot of that to you.

"We can't express enough gratitude for the amazing event we hosted with Puppy Love and the rescue puppies. It was heartwarming to see our fans and players come together to support such a great cause.

We feel privileged to have been a part of this event, and we look forward to continuing to support Puppy Love and their mission to help provide people with joy and help the rescue care for animals in need.

Puppies Improve Employee Health

The {fran_band_name} experience is one of the best wellness ideas for employees. 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.

Our team at Puppy Love™ makes it easy to host an event. We are here to assist with setup, and our puppy coaches will ensure you have a relaxing, fun, and mess-free puppy experience. Book an event today!

Whats better than bonding with your co-workers and holding Puppy Love™ puppies - Nothing!


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.

All pups come from our vetted, fully trusted rescue partners who ensure pups are happy and well cared for. 20% of all Puppy Love proceeds are donated back to our rescue partners to help cover their food and medical costs.
