Do you like dogs and puppies? Could you do with some time out from your busy work day? Pause for paws!
Who are Paws in Work?
Paws in Work offer a specialist puppy therapy service for employees in high stress level jobs. With a focus on making a positive change, Paws in Work sessions are designed to truly focus on staff wellbeing, encouraging you to get away from your desk to completely de-stress in a fun, unique and effective way.
What does the session entail?
You’ll have 25 minutes to interact, cuddle and laugh with young playful pups, all safely and comfortably facilitated by the Paws in Work team who do this regularly.
Is this OK for the puppies?
Whilst the benefits for you are phenomenal, the benefits for the puppies during their play date are even greater. Paws in Work work with reputable owners to aid the socialisation of their pups before they go onto their new forever homes. The sessions introduce the pups to positive experiences; getting them familiar with new sights, smells, surroundings and car journeys before they go onto their loving forever homes.
What is Puppy Therapy and why is it good for you, you ask?
Puppy therapy is play time with a litter of puppies. It’s a little time out to do something calming which can have very positive mental health benefits. It can encourage you to take a much-needed break from your desk and deadlines and clear their heads. With scientific studies showing a positive effect on decreasing blood pressure and reducing cortisol levels, interacting with a pet is something that has a proven benefit to any individual’s wellbeing.
The Mental Health Foundation states that just by stroking, sitting with or playing with an animal, you are given a chance to relax and calm the mind.
