Puppies are a Gift to Your Team

Puppies can be a wonderful pre-game experience for your athletes. Professional games often carry immense pressure for team members, and you want them to perform their best. A therapeutic session with Puppy Love puppies could be just the thing to ease nerves and reduce stress to keep your players at the top of their game.

A puppy meet-and-greet can be an excellent way for players to bond and socialize. Events encourage camaraderie amongst your athletes and will help them work together better. Puppies promote team building and are the perfect companions to sit and absorb athletes’ emotions before a big game.

Your team will love the Puppy Love™ session, and it will help prepare them to go out and give their fans their best on the playing field.

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.

Puppy Love: An Easy Game

All Puppy Love™ events feature rescue puppies that your players, staff, or fans can adopt. We make puppy entertainment easy with flexible set-ups we customize to fit the needs of your venue and event.

Our staff brings the rescue puppies in a caravan of cute canines that leave no mess behind them. Your gym or turf floors will stay protected from puppies and people through our double-layered waterproof flooring. This ensures the puppy play zone won’t impact your team’s play zone.

Our trained puppy coaches will lead the puppy interaction and help facilitate moments with the puppies and athletes. We can lead team members and audiences into the puppy pen and ensure all accidents are promptly cleaned up. Your staff can relax and let Puppy Love do the work so that they can play with the pups.

Puppy Love Shows You Care

Professional sports teams understand the value of giving back to their communities and raising awareness of local and national causes. Puppy Love has had immense success partnering with sporting events to kick off national pet adoption week.

Past events have led to over 22 successful adoptions, and over $15,000 was donated to Doggie Protective Services on behalf of the hosting sports team. Working with Puppy Love™ can significantly impact the lives of your local animals! By sponsoring a Puppy Love experience at a game or other sporting event, people will make positive associations with your company or product. Not only is it great for public perception, it helps our puppies find homes. A true win-win!

By bringing rescue puppies to national attention, your team will be able to help puppies find loving and caring homes. Fans will be even prouder to support teams that care about the dogs in their region. Nothing will win their hearts more than watching your star players walk out with a puppy in their arms.

Puppies will happily play and show off their best game face through engaging pre-show and halftime pup races and games. Our puppy coaches will coach them to victory!

"Sabrina and her entire team were great! We had a corporate event and Sabrina organized puppies and canine companions to be at our conference over a 3-day period. All attendees were in love with this idea and it really made the entire conference extra special. Attendees could not stop talking about the experience and I was so grateful that Sabrina took care of everything and was so organized. All we had to do was show her where the puppy area was, and her team took care of everything. Extremely organized and I would recommend this to anyone and everyone who wants a unique experience at their next event. Thank you, Sabrina and team, for being awesome! "

Bryan, Gilead

"I hired Puppy Love for an event in our office in San Francisco. We had been hosting some creative happy hours of sorts and someone had the great idea of a puppy play date! Thank goodness that Puppy Love exists. The team had the BEST time with the 10 puppies that came to our event. One of our engineers even adopted one of the cute little fur balls.

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.

I wanted to take a moment to express my sincere gratitude for the fantastic work you did at Manifest. Your puppy booth was a real hit and brought a lot of attention to our company. 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.


Geodis, Events Manager

"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. The puppies brought so much joy and laughter to everyone, and it was an unforgettable experience to see 25 of them find their forever homes. 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. "

Thank you so much for sharing the photos, I have passed them along to the volunteers and Interns! I will gladly leave a review! Thank you so much again! 🤗💓🎉"

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.
