We’re excited to announce the launch of Pack Campus today.
We believe in Take Your Dog To Work Day, every day. Meetings go faster, breaks are more active and people smile more when there are dogs afoot. When we say that life is better with a dog by your side, we don't just mean on nights and weekends.
So we created Pack Campus to celebrate the most dog-friendly workplaces in the world.
Pack Campuses are like "office packs" for companies that let their employees bring dogs to work, or otherwise have dog-friendly culture deep in their DNA.
Meet the dogs who roam the halls and snooze through meetings at some of the coolest companies in the world, from the biggest of the big (Google, we’re looking at you!) to the tastiest of the tasty (Ben & Jerry’s, anyone?) all the way to a surprisingly dog-friendly college campus.
Featured Pack Campuses:
Dog culture runs deep at the GOOG. Even their official code of conduct states their affection for dogs and their belief that dogs are an integral part of their corporate culture. We’re excited to get to meet the dogs of Google via this Pack Campus. Don’t be evil; love your dog. Check out the dogs of The Google Pack.
Of course Ben & Jerry’s is known for their ice cream. Mmmm, ice cream. Did you know they are also a super dog-friendly office? Ben & Jerry’s loves their dogs at their headquarters in Vermont and employees call them their “K-9 to 5’ers.” They even have dog cookies at the reception desk! Go love the Ben & Jerry's dogs!.
Swift is a digital advertising agency that serves global Fortune 500 clients including Starbucks, Nestle, Teavana, HTC, Microsoft, and Disney, among others. So, not only are they a bigshot creative agency of record, they are doubly cool because they really love their dogs.
Tito’s Handmade Vodka is produced in Austin at Texas’ first and oldest legal distillery and they are the exclusive vodka brand served on all United Airlines flights. Employees at Tito's Handmade Vodka are encouraged bring their dogs to work and they can be seen roaming freely in their office. Stella is the super mom leader of the Tito’s pack.
Petplan is North America's best-loved pet insurance compnay. Here’s what Sr. Talent Hound, Ryan Harris had to say about dogs in the Petplan workplace. “Being passionate about helping pets isn’t just what we do for a living; it’s what we live for. Having best friends by our side is a constant (and loving!) reminder of our commitment to their care.” Check out the dogs of Petplan!
Stephens College has a vibrant pet program that encourages staff and students to bring their dogs to campus. If a student doesn’t have a dog they can foster a dog from a local no-kill shelter. Stephens is called one of the most pet-friendly colleges in the country. Check out their Pack!
Autodesk helps people imagine, design, and create a better world. They are a leader in 3D software and in being a dog-friendly office. They even offer their employees dog training classes at lunch! Meet the dogs of Autodesk.
