[Every Day is] Take Your Dog to Work Day at Athleta

Every Day is “Take Your Dog To Work Day” at Athleta!

We believe in teamwork and a life in motion, and for many of us, dogs complete our active lifestyle. Walk through our doors in Sonoma County and you’ll see our four-legged friends close by, whether we’re working at our desks or stretching our legs outside.

Plus, there are countless benefits of having dogs in the office:

  • Dogs are great conversation-starters. New puppy in the office? Everyone gather around!
  • Walking has been shown to boost creativity. And, dogs make great walking partners. They need movement as much as we do!
  • Speaking of walking – dogs keep us active, which in turn lowers blood pressure and cortisol (a no-good, stress-inducing hormone).
  • People are more productive when they’re happy. Belly rubs = immediate mood-boosting results.

Meet a few of our dog-loving employees and their four-legged friends.
