June 24th is “National Take Your Dog to Work Day,” but at Cali Bamboo, every day is take your dog to work day!
Here at Cali, we strive to promote a fun and relaxed company culture that includes our love for animals and our passion for the wellness of our staff. We believe that allowing our employees to bring their pups to work contributes to the creation of a holistic and playful environment that is part of who we strive to be as a company.
National Take Your Dog to Work Day first began in 1996 in the U.K., and was adopted in June of 1999 in the U.S. This day was created by Pet Sitters International to celebrate the companionship of canine friends and encourage adoption from local shelters, rescue groups, and humane societies.

Neither of Nick’s pretty puppies can catch a frisbee, but both love to run and are high endurance — perfect for hikes and outdoor jazzercise! The larger of the two is Bodingo, who is 3 years old. Bodingo came from a horse ranch in southern San Diego, and was a shy little pup with a significant fear of water. Now, he’s a superb swimming champ and loves playing in rivers and streams — he even bites at the rain when he’s outside! Trixie is the smaller of the two, and only 7 months old, so she’s still a little pup. Trixie hails from Las Vegas and is the social opposite of Bodingo — she loves saying hi!
Paul’s pup, Teddy, was found abandoned on the side of the road in Monterey, CA, with the number 9 tattooed on his belly — which makes us think he escaped from a puppy farm.

At the office, he goes by “Scrappy!
