Inside Paws HQ - July/August
It's been a whirlwind couple of months at Paws in Work! We've been all over London and beyond, hosting puppy therapy events, delivering our mental health training, and socialising our furry friends. Though our team's been busy, they've also had the chance to take some time out themselves with our wellbeing days!
If you're curious about what happens behind the scenes in the coolest job ever, you're in for a treat. Read on to get the inside scoop on what our team has been up to in July & August.
Puppy socialisation programme
Our mission is to create a better life for people and pups, and our puppy therapy events help puppies from a young age develop into confident social adult dogs. By exposing them to new experiences and a variety of people, they are less likely to show aggressive or anxious behaviour later in life.
We are always looking to further develop our socialisation programme and our Puppy Welfare team have been working incredibly hard behind the scenes over the past few months to do just this.In August, it was finally time to trial this amongst sessions and with our loveable litters of pups!
We implemented some new stimuli such as wobble boards, tunnels and foam blocks into the setup and carefully monitored how the puppies reacted to them. Exposing them to new textures and levels stimulates their senses and encourages them to explore their environment.

At Paws in Work, we truly believe that everyone needs a breather now and then, which is why we implemented quarterly 'Employee Wellbeing Days'. For one day our employees hit the pause button on work and do something for themselves.
Some employees simply enjoyed a well-deserved lie-in and catching up with the latest TV series, whereas others went for a long walk either by themselves or some furry friends! One staff member got the opportunity to have a hand at pottery and another even got to attend a music festival a day earlier!
Our employee wellbeing days help keep the Paws in Work team happy, healthy, and ready to tackle anything that comes their way!

Meet our new litter of Scotties
In July and August, we met many litters of puppies including Cockapoos, Cocker Spaniels, Pugs and Dachshunds. We also got the opportunity to welcome a litter of Scottish Terriers to the ever-growing list of breeds we have worked with.
Their excitable and confident personality melted a lot of hearts, and we're already looking forward to welcoming another litter. Just look at those ears!
