adventures of S&S, Animal Welfare League of Qld, Hans Sausage, Notes from S&S

Even though Hans & Odie could be mistaken for the most spoiled dogs on the planet their life was not always so chipper. Before there was “SAUSAGE AND SANCHEZ” Odie was a stray who was left to wander the streets before being found by a Animal Management Officer and taken to the pound, underweight with k9 cough and flea bitten ears. Hans was left abandonded as a five week old puppy in a dog park before finding his way to the Animal Welfare League and then into my heart. It is for this reason we sign up to Out with the Dogs every year in the hope that we can raise a few extra dollars for the companion animals currently waiting for their own happy home at the Animal Welfare League of Qld.

Hans & Odie love to camp and this year we plan to camp at Stradbroke Island. If you can sponsor our camp out please click here or to register for your own fundraiser log on to www.outwiththedogs.com.au

Take your dog to work day

Animal Welfare League of Qld, Hans Sausage, Uncategorized

Every day is Take Your Dog To Work Day at Sausage & Sanchez. So much so Hans & Odie are practically on the payroll. (Paid in cuddles and Treats-a-la-Bark cookies of course).

On June 21 (Friday) Local shelter Animal Welfare League QLD are encouraging the community and local businesses to get involved in ‘Take Your Dog to Work Day’ a day that promotes the bond between humans and their pets.

TYDTWDay has been going strong for 15 years, with employees around the world making room in their cubicles for their canine colleagues to encourage pet adoption.DSC_3559

There are loads of benefits in taking your dog to work including:

Increased Productivity
Bringing a dog to work increases employee productivity level due to decreased stress.

Reduced Absenteeism
Stress is a major driver to absenteeism and reducing stress by having the dog in the workplace could lower stress and ultimately decrease absenteeism.

Increased Employee Interaction
A dog is a great icebreaker. When you walk your dog hoe many times do you get stopped by passersby? If you have a small dog or young puppy you almost have to fight off a stampede. (when Hans & Odie are out and about I constantly make new friends)

 Promotes Healthier Habits
Having their dog at work forces the employee to take the dog for a walk and get fresh air.
Even a short walk during a 15-minute break can revitalise employees which makes them more productive.
