Jonny Vaughan

Journalist and TV Presenter Johnny Vaughan says: ” It’s not until you lose, or nearly lose your dog you really appreciate how important they’ve become. Unconditional love, always pleased to see you, always there for you, never judge you – happiest when they’re just hanging out with you – the definition of friendship.”

Amanda Holden

Actress and star of BBC drama Cutting It, Amanda Holden says: “Take Your Dog to Work Day is a fantastic idea. Dogs are social creatures and it’s really hard for them to be left at home for hours at a time. And the event won’t just benefit your dog! It’s a well-known fact that pets are great stress busters and anything that reduces stress in the workplace has got to be a good idea for everyone.”

Jenny Seagrove

Actress Jenny Seagrove and star of the BBCs Judge John Deed says: “Dogs are great stressbusters and icebreakers. I’ve found that when Kizzy is around people tend to be better humoured and more relaxed. Therefore, more productive.”

William Roche
