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™ Southern California 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.
With the welfare of our pups as our number one priority, each event is structured to absolutely ensure their safety, care and happiness. At the events, pups receive a great deal of socialization – essential to their development – in a fun, safe and positive atmosphere to familiarize them with meeting different people.
Puppy Love does not sell puppies as we believe in rescue vs. buy. That said, all our adorable pups are available for adoption and attendees can work directly with our rescue partners to comply with their process.
The age of our pups/dogs can differ from 8 weeks to 10 years, but typically the puppies are between 8 to 16 weeks.
The events themselves are like a break for the puppies – they snuggle, play, and get lots of attention! And while many pups play, some will just want to relax or sleep, so that’s exactly what they do. These events are all about the pups feeling safe and happy in positive surroundings, and your attendees getting lots of love and cuddles.
Puppy Love arrives an hour prior to the event with all the necessary gear to set up the environment. The rescue/fosters arrive 30 minutes later with the pups, giving them time to settle into their new play area. We stroller them in, so your cute, branded experience begins at the get-go!
Our standard Puppy Love experience is 2 hours. However, we also provide pups for up to 6 hours for larger conferences.
Depending on the size/attendance of the event, we provide 2-4 Puppy Coaches to answer questions, manage traffic flow, ensure pups are handled safely and make sure the event area remains spotless. A Kissing Booth backdrop is set up with hand-held signs for fun photo-ops as well as table where attendees can inquire about puppy adoption if they happen to fall in love.
Once the event is over, we pack up our pups and equipment and haul any trash away. You’ll never know we were there – except for the lingering smiles!
Absolutely! And if you post them on social media, please tag us so we can share the joy #puppyloveparty
Yes, we have. A key thing to note is the pups never actually come into contact with the office space. Once they arrive in their puppy strollers, they are taken straight to the event area and are only allowed on our special protective flooring.
The minimum requirement is a 10′ x 10′ space – but we can be flexible depending on what’s available. We like to set up as quickly and efficiently as possible, so if any chairs or desks can be cleared away prior to our arrival, that certainly helps. We monitor the temperature throughout the day to ensure our pups’ comfort and always conduct a risk assessment prior to event day to make sure the space is suitable for our pups.
Yes, however children must have their parent present and be willing to sit on the floor to play with the pups.
Yes! We look forward to hearing more about your goals for the event so we can customize the best experience.
