National Pets @ Work Day - The Joys of Being a Petco Office Pet

By PetcoBlogger on Apr. 21, 2017


Petco established “National Pets @ Work Day” on April 19, 2016. While we’ve shared many of the benefits that a pet-friendly work place can bring, such as increased productivity, creativity and socialization among co-workers, have you ever wondered what life is like through the eyes of a Petco office pet? 

Here are a few of our favorite moments from the pets at the office.

If I rest my head on my dad's arm, I can track every move he makes. And make sure he doesn't leave me.
