Teamwork within a company has tons of benefits. Collaboration results in better problem solving, more creativity and innovation and boosted productivity, to name a few. For employees, working as a team has been shown to increase happiness and work satisfaction, as well as encourage personal growth. For these reasons and more, you likely are looking to incorporate wellness group activities in Silicon Valley / Bay Area into your workplace culture. So, where does Puppy Love come in?
It may or may not surprise you to learn that one of the benefits of engaging with animals is increased social interaction. In the workplace, a puppy’s ability to foster social connection encourages a kind of interaction and self-expression that employees in many industries don’t get to experience often. After all, what better way to bond than over a furry friend?
A study from 2017 found that when two groups were given a task to complete together, the group that also had a canine companion reported higher levels of trust in their teammates. With that higher trust, they were also more attentive and enthusiastic about completing their task.
Research has suggested interacting with animals helps more than just employee-to-employee connections-it has a positive effect on how employees feel about supervisors as well.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.
Now that you know a little more about the positive effect interacting with animals can have on team building with your employees, consider a puppy experience with Puppy Love. We’ll help you determine a date, time, and location that works for your company, either as part of an array of wellness group activities in Silicon Valley / Bay Area or as a unique highlight to the end of a tight deadline or work conference.
In addition to the positive impact on employees, partnering with Puppy Love also has a positive impact on our puppies’ lives. We work closely with rescue organizations, so all of our puppies are adoptable, and 20% of proceeds from events go to our rescue partners to help cover medical costs for precious animals.

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."

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.
