Every year, celebrity dog owners offer their own support to the event.

Laura Frey, Your Dog magazine columnist and radio presenter for Herts Mercury 96.6FM, with her dog Tinkerbell.
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.”
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.”
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.”
