Battersea Dogs and Cats Home

Pets at Home Corporate Challenge Day

Pets at Home Colleagues were invited to Battersea Dogs and Cats Home to participate in a three day teambuilding and development challenge aimed at improving communication and team bonding between Colleagues from a variety of London based stores.

Thirty Colleagues from various stores and departments of Pets at Home worked together over three days to improve the lives of the dogs in Battersea. Colleagues were put to the test and asked to try their hand at some arts and crafts and paddock cleaning; Battersea’s dogs were delighted with their new toys, lavender pouches and tasty peanut butter treats that were made as a result!

The afternoon brought an entirely new challenge when Colleagues were asked to train some of the dogs in agility and to compete against each other. Contestants were faced with a variety of dogs, including bouncy Beagle, Buffy and Roxy the Rottweiler. The aim was not speed but precision as dogs went through tunnels, over jumps and onto tables, all with the goal of being crowned agility champion!

Yo Wright, Store Manager of Pets at Home in New Malden said that “All the team had a brilliant day and really enjoyed the opportunity to spend some time socialising with the dogs at Battersea. The dog agility challenge encouraged some great team bonding and brought out a bit of competition between Colleagues!
