This year on July 21, employees of more than 50 Ukrainian companies in 15 cities worked together with their four-legged friends.
Such dynamics indicate positive shifts in the context of the development of a culture of attitude towards animals in Ukraine, says Kateryna Kovaliuk, head of the public relations department at Kormotech. “This action illustrates the readiness of Ukrainian society to perceive the dog primarily as a companion and let it into more aspects of their lives than just walkies” she notes.
IT company Sypmphony Solutions also joined the action. There were 4 dogs in the office who made a real sensation, said Iryna Voznaia, the company event coordinator.
“To be frank, we had our fears: it’s still an office where people work, not a park. However, everything went great! Our colleagues were happy, took pictures and played with the dogs. I think next year we will take part again,” – says Iryna.
The tradition originates in the USA, where this day has been celebrated for 17 years in a row. In Ukraine, Kormotech became the organizer of the action for the fifth time. Next time the holiday will take place on July 6, 2018.
