Mental health benefits
In a world that often feels overwhelming, finding solace in unconventional methods is crucial for maintaining a happy and productive workforce. By interacting with puppies, our brains release chemicals such as oxytocin, serotonin, and dopamine – the trio responsible for elevating mood and reducing stress.
As we journey through the therapeutic world of puppy companionship, it becomes evident that these furry friends are more than just pets, they are healers, stress-busters, and mood enhancers.
Having puppies in the office promotes a sense of calmness, reduces cortisol levels, and diminishes the effects of anxiety whilst simultaneously elevating motivation. To top it all off, the puppies benefit too, it’s a win-win for all involved.
The simple act of petting a puppy can trigger a relaxation response, lowering stress levels and promoting a sense of tranquillity. Staff can take time out of their busy work schedule to spend time with a litter of puppies, and reset.
Engaging with puppies stimulates the release of the neurotransmitters serotonin and dopamine, which calm and relax us whilst simultaneously releasing oxytocin; the love hormone! All contributing to an improved overall mood.
Enhanced social connection.
Puppy therapy encourages social interactions, fostering a sense of connection and reducing feelings of loneliness or isolation. Attendees can interact with colleagues that they may not normally meet in a relaxed environment.
A litter of puppies offer unconditional love and companionship to attendees, even for just 25 minutes, creating an environment that aids in coping with everyday life and work challenges that arise.
Our summer garden setup provides a safe space for attendees to express emotions whilst at work. In the company of puppies, the barriers of the staff naturally lower, fostering the development of emotional bonds.
