KING, N.C. - June 7, 2013 - PRLog -- Pet Sitters International (PSI), Take Your Dog To Work Day® creator, and, creator of National Dog Party Day™, have partnered for a third year to encourage pet owners to take part in a double dog day celebration on Friday, June 21, 2013.  

Pet-loving individuals and companies are encouraged to kick off this day by participating in PSI’s 15th annual Take Your Dog To Work Day (TYDTWDay®). TYDTWDay encourages businesses to experience the joys of pets in the workplace on this fun summer Friday to celebrate the great companions dogs make and promote their adoptions.

“Since 1999, thousands of businesses have supported TYDTWDay’s mission of celebrating dogs and promoting pet adoption,” noted Patti Moran, PSI president, pet-sitting industry pioneer and author of Pet Sitting for Profit. “Last summer, more than 360,000 visitors explored ( to learn more about participating in the annual event—a 200 percent increase in site traffic from the previous year. This year we anticipate even more pet lovers joining in the celebration by participating in both TYDTWDay and National Dog Party Day.”

She is a noted pet trend expert, founder of Four Legged ( and host of the Oh Behave! show on Pet Life, the world’s top-rated pet podcast network.  She pointed out that this partnership combines two unique, charitable events and gives pet owners an opportunity to spend quality time with their pooch.

TYDTWDay and National Dog Party Day™ allow pet owners to work and party with a purpose,” Moore said. “Participating in these June 21 events is a great way to give back to the pet community, and who better to have as your work and party partner than your well-mannered dog?”
