At Barkly we have the pleasure of bringing our furry family members to our office each day so we know firsthand how they can make even the most hectic days more fun and yes, even more productive. Dogs in the workplace are known to increase morale, employee productivity and foster community. As a company who is dedicated to improving the lives of pets and their owners, we’re encouraged to see companies of all shapes and sizes adopting pet friendly policies.
In Philadelphia, there is one company who sets the bar high for being pet friendly. Urban Outfitters, Inc (“URBN”), parent company of Anthropologie, BHLDN, Free People, Terrain, Urban Outfitters and Vetri Family, is a dog-friendly workplace. URBN has an on-campus dog park and even has a dog section on their corporate website featuring some of the hundreds of dogs who come to work each day at their Navy Yard headquarters. Given the natural fit between Barkly and URBN, we are excited to announce a new first-of-its-kind partnership with URBN. Our professional dog walkers will now be on URBN’s Navy Yard campus daily to walk their employees’ dogs and make the work day a little more enjoyable.
We couldn’t have chosen a better partner for our first corporate partnership than URBN. Given their entrepreneurial culture and dog-friendly workplace, URBN is an ideal partner for Barkly and a natural extension of our focus on delivering high-quality care, anytime, anywhere — even at the office.
