PAWS for Wellness

A dog in the office is one of the best ways of beating stress at work.  Reduced stress, lower blood pressure and the release of human feel-good hormones are just some of the reasons why WellSpring celebrates PAW (Pooch At Work) Day.  Additional benefits of keeping a dog in the office includes reduced nerves, indigestion, headaches, coughs and tiredness.  But the real reason for having our dogs in the office – it’s just fun!
