“Earth Options Pet Food by Pets First wants the world to share the simple joy of bringing your pet to work. We have been blessed to enjoy their company in our work place for 20 years and now wish every pet owner to share that joy with us even if it’s just for a day,” Pam Knibbs, Sales Manager explains.

When Owner, Phil Chagnon, was asked why he brings his dog to work, he said, “There are times during the day when the stress levels get a little extreme. Times when creativity ebbs to a standstill. Then Paxton climbs into my lap. And gives me a slurpy sloppy kiss. He purrs like a cat and settles while almost breaking my arm. I laugh and tell him he is a good boy and give him a hug back. Then I take him for a walk. When I get back to the office and start up again. It’s like a new day.”
