Ever wish someone could come walk you?
Nobody needs a brisk afternoon walk more than a desk-bound office worker — except for maybe a shelter dog.
Buddy Break sponsored by Zehnder Communications is a Jefferson SPCA program pairing 9-to-5ers with shelter dogs for lunchtime strolls. Everyone gets the fresh air, camaraderie, exercise, and tail wagging they need.
Studies show that office workers who take breaks from the daily grind have increased productivity, creativity, and problem solving abilities. When that break involves exercise, fresh air, and the proven stress relief of interacting with a friendly dog — well, it becomes even more potent.
Not only that, but adoptable dogs who are walked regularly have fewer social and behavioral problems, making them more likely to be adopted.
No commitment. No strings. No pressure. All you need is a willingness to hang out with a dog who needs the walk as much as you do.
Come get your doggie fix during lunch! Take a Buddy Break.
Buddy Break features the following:
• Dozens of adoptable shelter dogs
• Puppy Lounge - unlimited play for kids and adults alike with adorable shelter pups
• Free "I walked a dog at Buddy Break" sticker
