Reward And Recognition News: Employee Gift Idea: Pet Lovers

We’re a nation of pet lovers and for many of us, it’s  hard leaving pets at home. According to the Pet Food Manufacturers’ Association Pet Population report in 2017, a total of 8.5m dogs and 8m cats are owned in the United Kingdom.  So, how can you reward those pet fans in your office? We had a quick scan through some ideas as our own dog at I&M HQ stared longingly at the laptop.

A pet camera from Pawbo

One great gift for lovers of furry friends could be the Pawbo, a device that allows pet owners to check in and play with their four-legged friend at any point in the day from the palm of their hand.

The Pawbo⁺ pet camera is easy to set up and remotely control via the free Pawbo Life app (compatible with iOS/ Android platforms). Via this app, owners cannot only hear and see their pets but can also talk to them, take photos, give treats and play games even when they are away from home, at anytime, anywhere. The Pawbo⁺ camera can be logged into by up to eight different accounts allowing the whole family to check in on their beloved pet. It could be a slight distraction, but if you can’t do ‘dogs at work’ then this could be a great idea.  With Pawbo⁺ pet owners have the ability to keep in touch with their pet and more importantly to interact with them, helping with their happiness and stress levels.

A pet subscription box: Purple Bone

According to the independent, Purple Bone is a subscription you might want to try. This monthly subscription box has been called ‘perfect for new dog owners’ and comes with a range of ‘practical items  including squeaky toys, homemade chews, biodegradable poo bags and hygiene products.’

Why not sign up for a regular subscription or gift a grateful dog owner with a one-off box?
