Peldon Rose spends the day with Paws At Work

17 June 2022. News.

Our people’s wellbeing is a high priority for us, and we’re always looking for ways and initiatives to provide some time out. Studies show time spent caring for an animal can help with depression, stress and loneliness, and inspired by our friends at Preqin, we welcomed some special guests to Peldon Rose HQ… a litter of nine French Bulldog puppies!

Creating a dedicated puppy-safe environment (yes, that’s a thing), our employees were invited to spend 30 minutes experiencing pure puppy fun, otherwise known as puppy therapy. Along with plenty of cuddles, the puppies provided a lot of entertainment and laughter, some even saying ‘this is the best day ever’.

The science behind puppy therapy has proven the positive effect that interacting with animals has on our mental health and wellbeing. Time spent with the puppies is known for helping to deal with anxiety as well as reducing stress levels. It is not just our teams that benefit from the cuddles and attention, from a young age the puppies get the chance to meet new people and develop their social skills.

‘So nice to step away from my desk and enjoy some puppy cuddles. It really boosted my mood throughout the rest of the day’ – Georgia Marsh, Senior Marketing Executive

‘What a day! An absolute treat having Paws in Work visit our office for the day, a great team and an even better bunch of pups.’ – Katie Boc, Graduate Technical Designer

‘That was the day in my working life!’ – Leigh Taylor, Project Manager

‘I loved the whole experience! Thank you! I think we should have puppies in the office every day!’ – Michael Gorman, Commercial Manager

We couldn’t think of a better way to spend a Wednesday, we can’t wait for their next visit! Find out more about Paws in Work.
