RENO — In support of national Take Your Dog to Work Day, local public relations firm The Glenn Group will host its annual Dog Mob & Fair in its parking lot from noon to 2:30 p.m. Friday.
The Glenn Group has been pet-friendly for more than 15 years. The company is asking friends, pet owners and pet lovers to help celebrate their everyday routines by bringing their dogs to this event.
The Glenn Group is partnering with local pet companies, Healthy Tails and Sugarland Ranch for this event. Both will be on site with adoptable dogs from their shelter and Healthy Tails will provide goodie bags, treats and gift baskets for contest winners.
Activities will include a doggy parade, contests, pet adoptions, educational materials, a dog training presentation by Beyond Obedience and a dog wash. Guests can meet for the parade at The Glenn Group at noon to take a short stroll down to the river and back with their dogs. Contests will include such categories as “I Look Like My Dog” and for a minimum donation of $5, guests can get their dogs washed. All proceeds earned will be donated to Sugarland Ranch. Dog pools and treats will be available for canine guests. Human guests can also enjoy $1 hot dogs and drinks from Dan’s Dogs.
The Glenn Group celebrated Take Your Dog to Work Day in 2010, when more than 60 dogs joined The Glenn Group for a fun-filled afternoon.
“We, better than anyone, understand the benefits that having dogs in the office brings,” the company said in a release about the event. “They are great stress reducers, morale builders and all around fun to have in the office.”
The Glenn Group is located at 50 Washington St. in Reno. For more information on The Glenn Group dogs and this event, visit www.facebook.com/theglenngroupdogs.
